Mankind’s timeless fascination with silver stretches back thousands of years. As early as 700 BC written records reflect merchants using silver as a form of exchange. Most civilizations ultimately came to recognize the inherent value of silver as a trading metal to facilitate commerce.
Precious metals are valued for their beauty and relative scarcity in the Earth’s crust in addition to their superior properties. They are easy to work with, highly resistant to corrosion, superior reflectors of light and are unsurpassed as conductors of heat and electricity.
Silver has always signified status and wealth; it is one of the most romantic and sought after of all the precious metals. Although relatively scarce, silver is the most plentiful of the precious metals. Its unique properties include its strength, malleability and ductility, its electrical and thermal conductivity, its sensitivity to, and high reflectance of, light.
Silver is a precious metal, yet silver is an absolutely critical industrial metal, its reactivity is the basis for its use in catalysts and photography. Its versatility means that there are few substitute metals for silver in most applications, particularly in high-tech uses in which reliability, precision and safety are paramount.
A Great Opportunity:
Although the value of silver may vary, it has an intrinsic value that is immutable and permanent. Along with Gold, Silver can be an important store of value. For example, between 1971 and 1981, a period of just ten years, the U.S. dollar lost more than half of its value, while silver rose in price nearly five times.
No one can predict the future but many financial planners are now suggesting that prudent investors keep a store of silver on hand. Even in the most difficult of times, people have accepted silver as a medium of exchange.
Buy It Now:
Gold is best purchased and held in a secure place as a hedge against inflation. If held with Crowne Gold it can also be used as a digital currency for the Internet. Silver should also be stored in a secure place, but if you take physical delivery keep it accessible as you may want to use it as a physical substitute for a devaluing dollar. Many face-to-face vendors prefer to receive physical silver rounds or bars rather than US dollars. The opportunity to receive beautiful finished silver is highly intriguing to most people. Silver is at an all time low. Now is the time to buy as much as you can afford.
