Coins at kitco.com. It is better to have the actual gold. Gold is a doomsday investment. Wouldn't it really be bad if the dollar collapsed and you have a ton invested in GLD and your broker closed his door and you never see any money from it?

No offense, but does anyone on here have a broker or financial advisor???? There are many ways to trade gold, but they are way to numerous in detail to cover PROPERLY on a message board. Just buy the GLD and trust the exchanges to do their job:)
