Awhile back in this space, I posted a series on the basics of buying survival silver. I believe that along with having an adequate supply of storable food for the future, it’s a good idea that you also have a few silver coins on hand as well.

A lot of people freaked out near the end of last month when the price of gold and silver dropped like a rock.  Gold, which had been shooting past $1900.00 an ounce, suddenly plunged below $1600 almost in a day.  Silver’s sudden drop was just as surprising.
