A Dime’s Worth of Difference

A charting exercise that contrasts the purchasing value of silver with that of the U.S. dollar, and puts the CPI-adjusted silver price at north of $100 an ounce, leads to the conclusion that silver currently trading around $32 per ounce offers what could be an historic buying opportunity.

And a Coin Week article asking “What’s the Best Way to Invest in Silver?,” points out that “90% silver is very popular because it sells for the lowest premium over melt of any form of physical silver…. If you hold those coins until silver rises by say $10 a ounce, you can sell them for a profit and not lose a chunk of your initial outlay to premiums which disappear at the time of sale.”
