There are four, key wealth-building secrets held by some of the world's richest people. While the “Top 1%” of income earners represents a diverse group of business executives, entrepreneurs, old money and new money that have gotten rich by circumstance, diligence or good fortune ... they have certain consistent investing strategies that are very much worth noting.
The industrial demand for silver is soaring! Almost all modern electronics are configured with it. The world's appetite for silver has depleted world supplies creating an ideal investment window. Current silver prices offer a rare opportunity to act before this "poor man's metal" becomes the best kept secret of the rich.
There was a time when most Americans owned gold bullion. Today only about 4% of the US population holds physical, investment gold. World banks, however, have been on a gold buying run and for good reason. History reveals the timeless value of this very precious metal and why it's more important to own gold now than ever before.
Silver holds a unique position as both a precious and an industrial metal. With global demand rising, inventory short-falls have become commonplace. Silver is far less expensive than gold but tends to rise along with it. It has enjoyed an average growth of 20% per year over the past decade, outperforming the Dow Jones by 86%.
The Debt Ceiling was originally created back in 1917 to limit the powers of the Federal Reserve, but since its adoption, it has been raised about 80 times! Gold has closely followed the rise in US Debt for decades and over the past 15 years its value correlates to rising government debt at an astonishing 98%!
We now sit beneath the largest mound of debt in our history, and those holding American dollars are visibly worried. While still the world's Reserve Currency, the dollar is facing big global challenges as top economies are bypassing the buck for direct bilateral trading transactions. History tells us “post-reserve currency status” spells monetary crisis and catastrophe for those holding paper-backed assets!
There is a profit crisis occurring in the metals mining sector that will greatly impact supply, demand and future production levels. While gold and silver prices have fallen, the cost of mining both metals has steadily risen. All of this translates to less gold and less silver. With demand remaining constant—or even increasing—we are ripe for a supply crisis.

The Gold Recall
Lear Capital explores the 1933 Executive Order by FDR prohibiting private gold ownership. Lear explores the facts surrounding the order: 1) Private ownership of certain quantities of gold was restricted 2) The Recall Order did not apply to "rare" or "unusual" coins 3) The US Treasury determined what was "rare" or "unusual" 4) In 1974 the order was repealed. Lear believes that the possibility of another Gold Recall Order is unlikely but strives to keep consumers informed about all aspects of the gold marketplace.
Bullion vs. Premium Coins
Lear Capital explores the benefits of BULLION COINS versus PREMIUM COINS. Bullion Coins offer a Return on Investment, a Hedge against Inflation, and Protection against Weak Currency. RARE or PREMIUM coins can have values that often exceed their metal content, with select coins having outperformed the stock market, bonds and real estate for the past 40 years. Since they are highly collectible in nature, Premium coins can become even more valuable over time. Lear's Premium Coin Gallery and exclusive Premium Coin Analyzer are Free services provided for Investment Grade Coin Buyers to help establish relative and real numismatic value.
