As good as diamonds?

They say that "diamonds are a girl's best friend." What about gold and silver? While it's debatable as to whether or not gold and silver are as good as diamonds, there's no doubt that they're up there in that same category. There's just something alluring about precious metals and gems... the way they glint and sparkle, the rarity, the solid "real" feel when you hold them.

My question for you is - Have you ever held a pure gold or silver coin in your hand? Have you even seen one? If you haven't, there's no time like the present to do so. Find a local coin or antiques dealer and ask them to see a coin. You don't even have to buy it. Just see it. Hold it. Admire it.

Then, if you want to, figure out how you can buy it.
