Are Your Investments Properly Diversified With Silver?

February 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 130

If you are one of the few Americans who are holding gold and silver than this automatically places you a step above the rest of the nation. As paper currency continues to dwindle in value, precious metals are one of the only secure and profitable investment options. However, there is more to holding precious metals than just going out and purchasing them. There are many options to consider including: "paper silver" such as stocks, ETF's or certificates, or physical silver in the form of bullion bars, bags, rounds or coins. All are involving silver investment, but certain options are better than others.

Steer clear of "paper silver". Currently there is not enough physical silver to back the paper silver certificates that are in circulation. Meaning, it functions like a bank. If everyone were to cash in on their silver at the same time, there would not be enough physical silver to go around. This is not the safest method for a long-term investment. It does not provide the security that holding real tangible silver can.

Most people are familiar with American Silver Eagles or bullion bars as an investment option. Because of the familiarity people are often inclined to purchase them. If your goal is investment privacy, then this option does not give you the privacy you may be looking for. Additionally, bullion bars are difficult if your investment goal is to have something as a back-up plan for bartering, should the dollar completely fail. It is difficult to shave off a portion of a silver bar in exchange for a loaf of bread. Smaller coins are more feasible when your investment goal is future security.

The best option that provides the most privacy, liquidity and profit potential is your semi-numismatic silver coin such as the silver peace dollar. The semi-numismatic coin is not subject to dealer reportability laws upon its sale. This means there is no paper trail linking you to the purchase of the coin. This provides you the ultimate investment privacy.

The semi-numismatic silver Peace Dollar coins also offers a double profit potential. Not only does the investor benefit as the silver value continues to increase. The secondary value to the coin is that it is a collector item and is scarcer than the common bullion coins. This gives the coin additional value and profit potential.

Lastly, Silver Peace Dollars are smaller than common bullion, which makes them excellent for trading and bartering. If survival is an additional incentive in your precious metal investment, keep in mind that if things get dire your Silver Peace Dollars will make a valuable swap in for necessary survival items like food and shelter in uncertain times.

If you have gold and silver investments, check and be certain that you are properly positioned in the market. If you are like 99% of the nation and haven't yet diversified your financial portfolio to include precious metals, now is the time!
