Gold and Silver Mine Gold and Silver Mine

With 2013 drawing to a close, it’s time to reflect on the changes that have occurred this past year, both in the market of coins and precious metals and for Beachcomber Coins.

Because the stock market seems to be doing well, and inflation fears seem unfounded at this time, traders are pulling money out of metals and chasing stocks, which at this time are providing a better return. Am I the only one seeing a bubble developing?
