Don’t think that rare silver coins
are a more affordable or “bargain” investment option than coins made from gold.
This is a common mistake and leads people to miss out on some of the best
opportunities for investing in rare
We need to understand why people think of silver as a
second-class metal because this is extremely inaccurate. In fact, if you do any
research into the current market conditions you would learn a few things about
silver that might surprise you. Firstly, it has increased in price to a greater
percentage than gold. It is also a metal that is positioned for a tremendous
boom in demand over the next few years due to declining supplies, consumer
purchases, and industrial requirements across the globe. It is also a metal
that has been mined and yet which has been consumed by up to 90% in terms of
“above ground” supplies.
This means that newly minted and rare silver coins alike are
going to be tremendously valuable in the near future. It also means that
someone who wants to invest in more than just the metal will want to explore
their options in rare silver coins right away. Though the bullion coins will
appreciate substantially when silver “booms” in pricing, the historic and rare
silver coins will appreciate equally PLUS have the value of their history or
rarity as well.
Which is the larger of the two? Well, again you might be
surprised to learn that it is rarity or history that tends to provide coins
with a larger measure of value. This is because the coins are no longer being
produced, can decline in number due to loss or destruction, and will never
increase in terms of availability again. This sort of scarcity is what can make
almost any asset far more valuable, but it is easier to document this sort of
factor where coins are concerned and that is why it is always advisable to
consider them when developing some investment plans.
Let’s not forget that coins are also among the most portable
and easily liquidated forms of investment too. This is why they are always
called stores of wealth and why they tend to become a “go to” investment
whenever financial turmoil or difficulty occurs. When considering any
investment in silver coins, we suggest that a certified dealer be used for all
transactions since they understand when coins are truly rare and what the
actual values are.
