Silver has been used as a coinage metal since the times of the Greeks. Silver coins are among the first coins ever used, thousands of years ago. It was after the success of silver that copper and nickel coins became common.
Silver coins can still be used in the modern world because silver is quite a precious metal. Silver coins are already considered legal tender in most countries.
Many people are, even now, hoarding silver coins to safeguard their future.
The basic silver coin is usually one silver troy ounce, for example, the Canadian Maple Leaf, the American Eagle and the Chinese Panda.
You can use your silver coins for their face value by presenting them at any location where you are making a purchase. The merchant will accept your coins if silver coins are considered legal in the country.
The problem, however, with silver is that its value is not fixed and it keeps on changing every hour, which can make it difficult to use it for day to day trading.
Moreover, there is a shortage in the supply of silver as little quantity of silver is being mined. Most new silver we unearth is a byproduct of mining other minerals. Hence, the value of silver is expected to increase.
We have already seen gold hit new highs in the last few days due to the pandemic. Something similar might happen to silver in the near future.
Consider this option if you?re serious about making more money. Silver is easy to store, can be a part of your retirement account, and even be used to buy goods.
