It’s a universally accepted investment practice to diversify virtually any precious metal investment, for optimal financial protection. Gold is the primary precious metal investment of choice, since all of the worlds’ printed, or “fiat” currencies are backed by gold, and subsequent depreciation of those fiat currencies, historically means rising gold prices. Conversely, precious metals silver has a more independent relationship with dollar values, since silver has industrial and technological uses beyond its’ precious metal status. Precious metals silver is also considerably more abundant than gold, making it considerably more affordable than the yellow metal. Consequently, it has earned the nickname, “poor man’s gold”.
For all of these reasons, precious metals silver is widely considered to be the ideal diversification for gold investment. Experienced investors generally recommend physical possession for at least some of a precious metals investment, and it makes infinitely more sense to liquidate a portion of physical silver (as opposed to gold), in the event of an unforeseen financial emergency. Typical household investors usually purchase one-ounce, and/or ten-ounce bullion bars, and reputable brand names for purity include Johnson Matthey, Credit Suisse, and PAMP Suisse. Some popular silver coins include the following:
AMERICAN EAGLES, PEACE DOLLARS, MORGAN SILVER DOLLARS, SILVER AUSTRALIAN KANGAROOS AND KOALAS, AND CHINESE PANDAS.
