This week on the CoinWeek Podcast, Peter Hug, Kitco’s Director of Global Trading, joins us to give listeners a true peek behind the curtain of the precious metals market. Peter has been at the forefront of everything involved with the silver and gold bullion markets since 1974. A true pioneer in the modern precious metals industry, Peter’s insights are true to open the eyes of even the most practiced investor.
Peter discusses with us the shape of the metals market today, what Generation X thinks of bullion investing, whether bitcoin will eat into the metals market, and what types of marketing bs some companies use to paint a false picture of why you should own metal. All of this and more in this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast.

If you have paid attention to the rare coin market or read our analysis of major coin sales from recent years, you will already know that CAC has changed the landscape for certified coins.
Folks, its true that the grading services do fantastic service for our hobby… but in a market where originality, quality, and strict grading standards matters you need to know that the coins you by meet a higher standard. And coins certified by CAC have consistently brought more money at auction than coins without.
So before you buy, do your homework and look for the green bean on the holder.
It could make all of the difference between buying a coin that will hold its value, or even make you money, and buying a coin that might have problems not immediately evident in the grade.
