1. Pricing and Buybacks.
Gold Safe Exchange sale prices and buyback prices are set internally by Gold Safe Exchange and are constantly changing. Common Bullion Products are priced by Gold Safe Exchange for both sale and potential buyback for the most part in accordance with the spot price of the precious metal they contain. Premium Products, however, are priced by Gold Safe Exchange for both sale and potential buyback at a premium above the spot price of the precious metal they contain. This premium is solely determined and controlled by Gold Safe Exchange, based on various factors Gold Safe Exchange deems valuable, to include speculative interest, collector and investor demand, available supply, industry promotions, perceived value, economic conditions, and other factors Gold Safe Exchange deems relevant. The value assigned to Premium Products at any given time may vary from retailer to retailer and Gold Safe Exchange cannot guarantee another retailer will value a premium coin at the same rate as Gold Safe Exchange would in any given circumstance. Gold Safe Exchange cannot guarantee buy-back of any item it sells and cannot guarantee another retailer will purchase a premium coin.
Gold Safe Exchange’s sale prices and potential buyback prices are not necessarily related to, or affected by, the sale prices or potential buyback prices at which other retail or wholesale precious metals dealers or institutions buy, sell, or value the same or similar products. Moreover, there is a price differential, or “spread”, between Gold Safe Exchange’s sale price (the “ask” price) and the price Gold Safe Exchange pays for a product (the “bid” price). The bid/ask spread is calculated by subtracting the bid price from the ask price and then dividing the difference by the ask price: (Ask – Bid) / Ask). To make a profit, you must be able to sell the precious metals in the future for a price high enough to cover its initial purchase, including this spread. Spreads may be subject to negotiation, and any spread Gold Safe Exchange charges in a specific transaction may be more or less than the spread it charged to others in similar transactions or it charged to you in prior or future transactions. Although Gold Safe Exchange has historically bought back our customers’ gold and silver, the law prohibits us from guaranteeing we will repurchase the products we sell. As such, Gold Safe Exchange makes no guarantee that we will buy back any product, and Gold Safe Exchange’s buyback policy is subject to change without notice.
Anyone who considers purchasing Gold Safe Exchange products should consider the associated risks and acquisition costs. It isGold Safe Exchange’s view that precious metals should be considered a long-term asset, and that you should be prepared and willing to hold any purchased precious metals for several years before selling them. Products should only be purchased with discretionary funds that may be tied up for several years and not with funds necessary to cover your day-to-day living expenses. Gold Safe Exchange HAS NO FIDUCIARY DUTY TO YOU. Though Gold Safe Exchange may explain what precious metals options are available to you, the decision to purchase precious metals and which ones to purchase are your decisions alone, and Gold Safe Exchange is not responsible for your decisions. The purchase of Gold Safe Exchange products is not for everyone, and Gold Safe Exchange has no obligation to and makes no attempt to confirm the appropriateness of any product for any person at any time.
Many experts generally recommend that precious metals constitute between 5% to 10% of a well-diversified portfolio; see examples here and here. Some individuals or entities may recommend different percentages. If you choose to allocate any percentage of your funds in Gold Safe Exchange products, you are advised to do so only after consulting legal, financial, and tax professionals. Gold Safe Exchange does not guarantee, and makes no representation, that any allocation in Gold Safe Exchange products, whether between 5% to 10% or otherwise, is appropriate for any particular person.
Gold Safe Exchange products’ markets are subject to substantial fluctuations including significant and rapid increases and decreases from time to time. You must be able to assume and tolerate the risk of such price fluctuations. No assurance can be given that you will be able to sell your products at a price greater than or equal to the acquisition cost. You could lose money.
