999 and 9999 pure silver is a great investment...

Is it the best long-term investment??? No. The best long-term investment is taking care of yourself and the ones you choose to surround yourself with (physically, mentally, spiritually, and financially)... 

In these times of uncertainty, try to control the things you can control... healthy diet, exercising your anger away, paying down debt, saving some cash money, and stacking 999 silver... 

Whether it's PCGS American Eagles, NGC Canadian Maples, silver Kruggerands, or trusted silver bullion/bars/coins/junk silver, 999 silver is beautiful to stare at all day every day... Silver will always have value and is truly a fine long-term asset... 

Go on kitco.com and study silver and make the best decisions for yourself ...

As of Friday 8 May 2020, 999 silver fluctuates in value at around $15 a troy ounce, yet eBay continuously sees millions of people paying much more than that worldwide regularly... 

With that said, keep on stacking 9999 silver and thanks for posting your thoughts...

This.
But I'm guessing a jewelry store wouldn't be the best bet. Phone Post

Only do it for long term

Buy American Eagles at 33 or Canadian Maples at 32 each

They are the best silver bullion

When they hit 100 in t minus 20 years, you = triple your investment!

Yep, coin shop or eBay

Jacobmccrmck - Why does the price of something like that go up or down? What is its real value other than jewelry? <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>


throughout history of time,pure silver and pure gold coins have always been used as currency and it's still like that presently. They are rare and desired! Just ensure you do not buy worthless "Silver clad" or "Gold plated". BUY ONLY .999 SILVER COINS OR .9999 GOLD COINS, PERFERABLY AMERICAN EAGLES

C'mon son. Unless you've got over $2K to invest in gold or silver, it's not even worth the trip. You'd do better investing in HIV or Cancer medicine or any of the other plethora of medications that are being created for both real and imagined diseases.

Besides, buying coins and keeping them in a safe deposit box is not investing. It's hoarding. No money to be made this way. Who's going to buy them? If you don't know a reputable dealer, you're not getting jack. He's certainly not going to pay market value.

Now going to a commodities trader and investing in Silver is how you recoup your investment on the spot. No need to find a coin dealer. (Who would never pay fair price to a stranger) Just tell your trader to sell when you're ready to make some change.

i'VE HAD EXPERIENCE in this for years and have made lots of money. Coin shops and eBay DO pay fair share for "bullion" (.999 silver American Eagles or .9999 Gold Eagles). Type in "silver ounce" on an eBay search near closing time of an auction and you will see for yourself...Anyone can do it and make lots of money...

 Ok, I'll bite.  What legitimate support do you have for it being $100 in 2030?  An ROR of 5%, which is very conservative, will return $72.27 by 2030.   And to repeat, that is conservative.  Given that silver is going to $100, in your opinion, can you give you reasoning?

SgtJustinTeplitz - .999 silver is the best long term investment. With silver down to $28.60 an ounce, it will eventually hit $100/ounce. I say No Later Than 2030 will it be $100/ounce. What other investment has such a great rate of return? It may continue to go down temporarily, but will inevitably hit the $100 mark in 20 years or less.

Thoughts???


I find your wild speculation to be incredibly conservative. Silver will be $300/ounce by 2025.

I think the amount of money you have/want to spend will be a factor. If you only spend a few hundred dollars, then silver won't be a problem. Try spending a few *thousand* dollars on silver, though, and storing it somewhere. That bullion quickly adds up to a lot of weight/space. Gold is easier to store/hide.

Note - I do like silver... a lot. However, I think you should factor storage of physical bullion into your purchasing plan.

I have a few thousand in silver doesn't take up that much space. Trust me. If you buy a couple ounces a month or when ever you get a few bucks it adds up quick. I look at it as money I would waste other wise. I buy it and forget about it, I'm long term. Hopefully in the future I will have accumulated ebough to buy some land. Agbull has some good insight on this. Hopefully he will post on this. Phone Post

I'd rather invest money in iron ore until that time. Consistent returns and massive 10 year supply contracts = good tax friendly return and early retirement. Phone Post

$100 by 2030 is close to a 7% ROR, i think we will see $100 WELL before that time. As for reasons i could go into great detail but for anyone really interested in the subject watch Mike Maloneys video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5VNAEmmBQM

if you want just the reasons for silver check out the 31:14 mark (watch 4mins up to 35:14)

FatFrenchFry - Why would you take silver over other precious metals? <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>


gold:silver ratio (currently at 1:55) will revert back to its norm closer to 1:16 making silver a better choice than gold. Yes gold is less volatile, it will take off first but silver will play catch up then overtake the momentum of gold.

The advice on this thread is so bad, I'm not even going to try and fix it.

Just head over to the Survivalground where there has been a silver thread going for a couple of years now....


Edit: listen to what AG_bull says and the rest of us that have been silverbugs for a long time.

Buying marketed up one ounce "coins" that have zero numismatic value? Really, that the advice here? Straight bullion, no less than 10 ozs per or 90% junk silver.
