In the current economic climate we see great opportunities in agricultural land and other commodities such as bullion, oil and precious metals. The economic system in the United States is going through some current trials and tribulations. Over the past five years we have seen inflationary rates that have surpassed what we have seen in over a century. If inflation moves higher, which we predict will happen, we will see commodities such as agriculture, land and gas, oil prices and gold and silver prices moving higher. Forecasters see oil prices surpassing $200 a gallon over the next 10 years.
Experts believe that the debt levels in the U.S. are approaching astronomical levels. In 2008, the banks were presented with 17 trillion dollars which unbeknownst to most people, this is coming out of their bank accounts. The more money that is printed to pay off the debt, the higher inflationary levels become. The less the money in your bank account is worth. The higher food, grain and gas prices rise. Due to this increasing debt levels, we believe that commodity levels will soar sky high over the coming decade. According to GMBullion.com, we see gold price charts, silver prices, agricultural land and food prices rising.
There are several places where experts are predicting high agricultural profits. Many large investors are going to Brazil to purchase low cost land. An acre of land may cost under one thousand dollars. While in the United States, large financiers are investing in farmland in areas such as Iowa. Prices in the United States are much higher then outside the U.S. Prices for an acre of land in Iowa can run between eight thousand dollars to twenty thousand dollars.
In addition to investing in agricultural farm land we are recommending investing in commodities. With the increasing threat of a dollar collapse many are moving money from paper currency into assets such as gold and silver bullion. We are looking into making investments into gold and silver bullion non-numismatic coins. Over the past 50 years, gold price chart and silver prices have withstood the test of time and remains to be an asset that will always hold value.
If someone purchased an ounce of silver in year 2000, they would have quadrupled their money. While if someone invested in the stock market, they would have not made much money. This is due to the fact that inflation rates are over 6% a year, so you would have to make over 6% in the stock market to actually increase your income over inflation.

The most popular gold and silver coins to purchase are the American Eagle Coins. In addition some of the other popular non-numismatic coins to purchase are the following:
- Austrian Philharmonic
- British Britannia
- Canadian Maple Leaf
- Chinese Panda
There are several ways to purchase gold and silver bullion coins. One way is through a broker or dealer and another is through coin shops. The most popular coin is made in the U.S. mint. In addition, Americans also purchase gold bullion certificates through the Australian Mint at http://www.perthmint.com.au.
Historical Gold and Silver Bullion Charts:
Over the past 10 years silver prices have increased two fold and have gone from $10 years to $30 an ounce. Silver prices are highly volatile and those that invest in silver coins must have thick skin to be able to view the price fluctuations. Gold on the other hand has increased 200% over the past ten years. Silver prices charts have been a more stable asset over silver due to the higher demand. Forecasters believe that the next decade will be the decade for silver.
