Zinc Bullion  
On the left is a large picture of my beautiful zinc bullion bar from Joliet Mint. You knew it was coming! This just wouldn't be Gold Why if I didn't feature an article all about zinc ingots! If you've been here a while, you know I really enjoy my metal bullion ingots: copper, nickel, aluminum, brass, bronze, stainless steel, tin, and now zinc. I view myself as one of the most trusted sources online when it comes to investment grade metal bullion bars so I just had to jump all over this opportunity to showcase yet another awesome base metal: zinc bullion. In today's article I'll talk all about my experience buying this awesome bar.

Zinc Bars? C'mon!

Hey, I know what you're thinking. I've gotten the emails. There are some skeptics out there. I often get the question about why I'm willing to pay a premium over the spot price of these base metals for these ingots. There's really three reasons. First, they are just about the coolest collectibles out there. Metal bullion ingots are impressive and relatively cheap for the impression they make on people. Whether it's a gift for yourself or someone else, I can't say enough about these ingots. Second, it's very difficult to make these bars. The spot prices of zinc are based on paper contracts for the delivery of tons of the metal. When you start thinking about small investment grade ingots, those spot prices are just plain irrelevant. Third, and more importantly, we have a pending inflation problem that could to turn into a catastrophe, in my opinion. All fiat currencies throughout history have come to an end. Whereas the US Dollar used to be backed with real silver and gold (as you can see from my silver certificate), the dollar is now backed by zero metal. Moreover, the government is printing money day after day. My way of coping with this trend: stocking up on all types of metals, including base metals like zinc bullion. Gold and silver are great but they are far too valuable. As inflation worsens, it is going to be practically useful to have some less pricey but still valuable metal bullion on you hands. Here's where zinc bullion (and other exotic metal bullion bars) come into play. I seriously recommend picking up some metal bullion ingots. Sure, they will never account for more than 5 or so percent of my overall metals portfolio (gold and silver are still the lionshare by far), but it's an important and fun 5 percent to focus on!

Joliet Metal Mint Is Your Source For Zinc Bullion

I recently reviewed Joliet Metal Mint. I had an absolutely awesome experience purchasing this zinc bullion bar from them. In fact, it's one of the only places I have seen zinc bars online. Sometimes, when you're the only game in town, it's easy to cut corners. Not with Joliet Mint! As you can see from the picture in this article and also the pictures in my review of Joliet Mint, the bars are absolutely flawless. They take tremendous pride in their work and create truly investment grade zinc bars. I also purchased two really neat tin bullion bars from Joliet Mint and recommend those as well. I recommend checking out my review of Joliet Mint to learn more about zinc bullion and metal bullion in general.

Should I Start With Zinc?

If you're new to base metal bullion, I would recommend starting out with copper bullion. Over the last few years, the expansion of the copper bullion market has been amazing. What started as a really small, niche market has expanded into an industry with a variety of producers, pushing the limits to the next level. Once you have some copper (and nickel too), I'd recommend venturing out to other metals such as zinc bullion. There's nothing like rounding out your portfolio and this is a really fund way to do so!
