American Precious Metals Exchange CEO Michael Haynes was interviewed on CNBC today discussing the rising investment demand for gold and silver, and he brought with him $1 Million dollars worth of gold and silver coins. I think even the paper-bug talking head CNBC host was impressed, as he seemed to enjoy holding them. If you silverbugs out there have problems convincing friends and family that silver is not a “barbarous relic” just hand them a 1 oz Silver Eagle. Just feeling the heft of a gold or silver coin in the hand sparks something inside most people, who will find themselves instantly attracted to it.
