Are there risks?

All investments involve risk - gold and diamonds are no exception. The value of gold or diamonds is affected by many economic factors, including the current market price of gold, the perceived scarcity of the coins and many other factors. Some of these factors include the quality, current demand and general market sentiment. Therefore, because both gold and diamonds can go down as well as up in value, investing or buying them may not be suitable for everyone. Since all investments, including gold and diamonds can decline in value, you should understand them well, and have adequate cash reserves and disposable income before considering gold, diamond or investing in them.

Is Gold or Diamond taxable?

Royal Gold International, Inc. does not collect sales tax on most Precious Metals items such as Gold. Jewelry items and non-Precious Metal products (such as coin tubes and other supplies) are taxed if shipped within Oklahoma. For Oklahoma customers, these taxable items are clearly designated at checkout with a Taxable subtotal for the customer’s reference. A Non-Taxable Subtotal is also shown for items that are not taxed.
