AMERICAN BULLION RISK DISCLOSURE: Purchasing Precious Metals in Bullion Bars, Coins, Proof Coins, and Numismatic Coins involves a degree of risk that should be carefully evaluated prior to investing any funds. Investors should do their due diligence before committing any money to purchase Precious Metals.
American and its agents do not provide tax, investment, or legal advice or advisory services, and no one associated with American is authorized to provide any such advice or services. American makes no representations regarding the tax consequences of holding Precious Metals as an investment in an IRA. Client expressly acknowledges that Client has been advised to seek independent tax advice, from a qualified professional, regarding the tax consequences of such an investment.
Past performance is not indicative of future results. Any written or oral statements by American, its officers, agents, sales representatives, or other representatives relating to future events or the attributes of certain Precious Metals are opinions only. Such statements, if any, are not representations of fact.
American is a seller and purchaser of Precious Metals. While American is always prepared to compare and contrast the different Precious Metals that are available for purchase or that American is willing to purchase, Client acknowledges and agrees that (i) no fiduciary relationship exists between American and Client, (ii) the decision to purchase or sell Precious Metals, and which Precious Metals to purchase or sell, are the Client’s decision alone, and (iii) purchases or sales are made subject to Client’s own prudence and judgment.
In American’s opinion, Precious Metals should be considered a long-term investment. Client should be prepared to hold any Precious Metals purchased – whether from American or elsewhere – for at least a three to five (3–5) year period, and preferably five to ten (5–10) years, to maximize the potential for gains. In American’s opinion, Client should only invest capital that can be held for at least this period of time. Precious Metals, like all investments, carry capital risk. Precious Metals may appreciate, depreciate, or stay the same depending on a variety of factors. American cannot guarantee, and makes no representation that the Precious Metals will appreciate at all or appreciate sufficiently to make Client a profit at the expiration of this or any other period of time.
In American’s opinion, Client should not invest more than twenty percent (20%) of Client’s available investment funds in Precious Metals. Moreover, Precious Metals do not yield income and thus are not an appropriate investment vehicle for investors seeking current or future income.
The success of an investment in Precious Metals is dependent, in part, upon extrinsic economic forces including but not limited to supply, demand, international monetary conditions, and inflation or the expectation of inflation. The impact of these forces on the values of Precious Metals in general or any particular Precious Metal cannot be predicted. Client acknowledges that the Precious Metals market can be volatile and that Precious Metal prices may rise or fall over time. Client further acknowledges that past performance is no guarantee of future performance.
American’s sales representatives are commissioned salespersons – i.e., their salary is based, at least in part, on the amount and profit margin of the Precious Metals they sell. In addition, from time to time, American’s sales representatives may receive other compensation tied to sales activity – e.g., sales contests; bonuses tied to the sale of certain denominations/types or grades of Precious Metals.
