Buy Gold and Silver in Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico does not currently have US statehood -- it is an un unincorporated territory of the United States. The island has one of the strongest economies in Latin America, with manufacturing being the largest sector. Textiles, petrochemicals, electronics, and agricultural products make up most of the manufacturing of Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico is not a center for gold or silver mining, although in the days of the Spanish Empire the island was a frequent stop for ships carrying gold and silver back to Europe. However, the large population of the island ensures that there are many top gold and silver dealers in Puerto Rico today.
