I was ecstatic when I figured that out. Too bad a bit more than half of it is in numismatic items and therefore I paid well over spot for it but it's nice to know there is some real value in my collection
99% of my silver has numismatic value and I wouldn't have it any other way
Silver IS a smart investment but I just can't bring myself to buy bullion instead of coins I like
Personally I would rather look at coins than lumps of silver bars.
The 90% coins have everything going for them, bullion value and interesting coins as well.
If you want to "Invest" in silver go for the 90% or Stirling coins, These normally sell for a small% over spot and are a lot more fun than poured bars IMHO
Aim to Enjoy life. You only get one shot at it
