The Safety and Ease of Silver Investment

[silver coins]

Admittedly, it isn't easy to step out of the mainstream. We are suggesting a small leap of faith when suggesting silver. Few will recommend investing in silver coins as an option because so few understand it.

And this lack of understanding is certainly part of what makes this opportunity to invest so unique. The trick to this is to get started ASAP as prices will be moving steadily upward.

All it takes for a safe and easy silver investment is to:

1. Find a local coin shop.

2. Start with 500 or more one-ounce silver coins. I prefer 1. Find a local coin shop.

2. Start with 500 or more one-ounce silver coins. I prefer silver rounds (read why), but silver eagles or 90% pre-1965 silver coins are acceptable alternatives.

(All three options are liquid, easy to store, and potentially useful as barter or currency if necessary).

3. Lock them away in a waterproof and fireproof safe and forget about it.

4. When you can, pick up a few more coins here and there.

Once you’ve made your investment, you may find yourself wanting to stay on top of the silver investment market (or sign-up for my newsletter), but keep in mind that the price volatility on the way up may be a source of anxiety.

The deterioration of the U.S. (and international) financial system can be scary enough. Keep in mind that the

fundamentals are so strong and the price so cheap that combined with the small size of the market and the general public ignorance about money and precious metals, silver is almost too good to be true as a long-term investment.

Skeptics are encouraged to apply the same rules to silver as you would to any common stock (i.e., no chance of bankruptcy or stock dilution), and to remember that, in the case of silver coins, you actually (physically) have possession of your investment.
