Those times when gold does go down in price, buy up as much as you can. Precious metals will always go back up in value, and tend to stay there most of the time. When they do go down.... only a matter of time before they go right back up. Let's face it, no one is discovering a massive gold reserve buried underground the size of Rhode Island, that would cause gold to become practically worthless.One of my regrets is never getting gold coins when the price of gold bottomed out at around $300 in the late 1990s. I could have gotten $20 gold pieces in near mint condition for ~$300, give or take.
