Which is the Best Silver investment? Silver Bullion Silver Coins? It depends

Which is the Best Silver investment? Silver Bullion Silver Coins? It depends

What is the best silver investment? Really that depends on your personality type and what you are comfortable with. In this video I go over why I think having a balanced stack is the best Silver investment. You can only realize an investment when you sell it. Otherwise, you are collecting or accumulating, which is perfectly fine. There are different types of investments, which is the right investment for you? I can’t answer that, but I give a high level overview for each type. Do I cover all types? No, my numismatics only cover modern and very limited types. I think its high level enough in a decent amount of time to give some insight from my perspective. I tried to keep it short and to the point, so I missed some things.
