Silver, Gold and Platinum Shined in 2007


Rocketing fuel costs, bad housing news, inflation and recession debates, interest rate adjustments or lack of, a volatile stock market … 2007 has been an interesting one.

Then there’s the shiny stuff … precious metals. They performed in absolute style for 2007 and provided a year of a different type of excitement. Anyone who started the year buying silver, gold or platinum is sure to be smiling ear-to-ear.

Collectors who purchased bullion coins received a double-whammy, experiencing their coins moving up in intrinsic value and the glowing feeling of increased satisfaction with their purchases.

Many analyst are predicting a solid rise in metals and an even sunnier 2008. That, of course, is yet to be seen. There are rarely any sure bets.
