Why Buy Junk Silver Coins
Over the years, many individuals have purchased junk silver coins as a hedge against runaway inflation. We are all confident in our government, however if the U.S. Dollar should weaken or collapse on world markets and we need to revert back to a gold/silver standard, these junk silver coins would offer protection. In the event of calamity, these coins would be the most widely recognized and easily traded forms of silver.
Another reason to buy junk silver coins is the ease of bartering. It is much easier to barter with smaller denominations as opposed to large bars 100+ ounces. You certainly can’t sell a portion of that 100 oz. bar! Conversely, if the individual wanted to part with a fraction of their holdings they most certainly could with 90% silver coins.
