I got quite a few questions about my comments on several episodes about investing in silver. While I am not an investment adviser and can’t legally give specific recommendations I decided to do a show about some different options and the general advantages and disadvantages of each. I also went over just a few of the many economic signals that it may be a good idea to hold some hard assets like silver in the coming years.
Tune in today to hear…..
- The real value of silver and how it one time actually backed U.S. currency
- My personal opinion and view about silver coins and bullion
- The difficulty of finding a decent adviser that can help with metal investments
- The advantage of “physically possessing” hard silver
- Why you should keep individual increments small
- The risk of highly numismatics purchases
- The complete freedom of no minimums, no penalties of buying hard silver
- The ways to buy silver paper assets like stock and funds
- A bit on foreign silver coins
- How to calculate “melt value” of silver coins
- Investing as little as 5 bucks a month
- The ability to sell off small quantities as needed
- The huge advantage of “no paper trail” with small consumer purchases of silver
- The inheritance value of handing down silver from one generation to the next
