Initially, when silver was discovered around 3000 BC, it was considered more desirable than gold. Later, by the 1700’s, the Spanish were developing mines in Mexico, Bolivia and Peru. Argentina was actually named after Argentum, silver’s name in Latin. Before this, Aristotle advised Alexander the Great to store his water in silver containers to prevent the growth of bacteria and disease. As a result, there are many languages in the world today where the words silver and money mean the same. Silver has proven itself to be irreplaceable in industry and technology. Because of this, silver is heavily mined in many Latin American Countries as well as China and Turkey.
Throughout history, silver bullion coins have been used for trade and barter. Today, 1 oz silver coins are the first choice for many investors looking for financial security. They have a lower price per ounce than other metals and have little collector value, making them more attractive to investors who seek the safety they provide. Moreover, a silver coins’ face value is worth less than its true value which is determined by its silver bullion content. In fact, by purchasing a silver coin, you are investing in the weight, not the face value. As a result, silver coins that have collector value have a premium beyond the actual silver content; these typically have numismatic value because of their age. In conclusion, we highly recommend that you only those that have been graded by third-party grading services. For example, Professional Coin Grading Service or Numismatic Guaranty Corporation are highly trustworthy.
Currently, world silver inventories are at their lowest levels in 250 years. Because global silver consumption is at an all-time high, the USGS has predicted that silver could become nearly extinct in 10 years. At this time, with unprecedented demand and a well-documented potential supply problem, the sky seems to be the limit for silver. In summation, when you secure a private, physical position in silver, you gain financial security and have the opportunity to experience growth never before seen.
Prior to 1965, coins minted by the United States Mint contained 90% silver. A junk silver bag is any combination of dimes, quarters, half dollars and dollars with $1000.00 face value. For example, 5000 90% silver dimes and 2000 90% silver quarters would be the equivalence of $1000.00 face value, and would be considered a junk silver full bag. A full bag of 90% junk silver coins contains approximately 715 ounces of pure silver and weighs 56 lbs. Junk silver coins allow you to own silver in a smaller unit and is still spendable as currency. The premiums over the spot price for junk silver are low, which makes it not only affordable but practical. If you like the advantage of owning silver bullion that is easy for trade and barter, buying junk silver is an excellent choice.
