Investment Grade Precious Metals
Oakland Silver & Gold buys, sells and trades investment grade precious metals. Transactions over the counter are primarily for gold or silver, but OSG also buys and sells platinum, palladium and rhodium.
Gold and silver are always on hand in the shop, and most transactions are conducted over the counter with no delay. Higher volume orders, especially ones for specific products, may need to be brokered, which may take a day or two for delivery. We always tend to have a small variety of platinum, palladium and even rhodium on hand, and can supply large amounts by special order.

Investment has different meanings in finance and economics. In finance, investment is putting money into an asset with the expectation of capital appreciation, dividends, and/or interest earnings. This may or may not be backed by research and analysis. Most or all forms of investment involve some form of risk, such as investment in equities, property, and even fixed interest securities which are subject, among other things, to inflation risk.
A precious metal is a rare, naturally occurring metallic chemical element of high economic value. Chemically, the precious metals are less reactive than most elements. They are usually ductile and have a high lustre. Historically, precious metals were important as currency but are now regarded mainly as investment and industrial commodities. Gold, silver, platinum, and palladium each have an ISO 4217 currency code.
The best-known precious metals are the coinage metals, gold and silver. While both have industrial uses, they are better known for their uses in art, jewellery and coinage. Other precious metals include the platinum group metals: ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, osmium, iridium, and platinum, of which platinum is the most widely traded.
