A golden scam

To the Editor:

I am sure you’ve seen and heard these ads on TV of how to invest for your retirement in gold and silver coins. Not one of these ads states the percent of gold or silver in the coins. In cold, is it 2 percent, 10 percent, 12 percent, 18 percent, 24 percent or what? The same in silver, as the percent is never stated. Should you buy a basket of either gold or silver and decide to take them to one of our local banks or coin shops and cash them in, will you have to prove in a certified document by the company selling them as to the percent per coin? To try and take the coins out of the USA would be a big mistake. Watch and listen to these ads and prove me wrong!
