I know I know.. this is a long video! It's also based on opinion... opinions are like coins—everybody has them!

MY opinion:
The best silver to stack is that for which you will pay the lowest premium over the pure silver price.

If you are a silver stacker your primary interest is the price of silver, not the added numismatic value otherwise you have some degree of numismatic motivation.
Nothing wrong with that.

From a purely silver stacker point of view the order of preference should be:
1. pure silver bars in the largest sizes possible, so that the premium per ounce over the silver is as low as possible
2. silver bullion coins - but not proofs, in lowest grade possible.
3. 90% silver coins, taken at face value, from CRH'ing activites (Why 3rd place? - because refining costs have to be paid.)
4. other bullion coins against which some premium has been paid, such as proof bullion coins.
5. World scrap silver coins. (That is the area in which I accumulate, because they usually come as "by" purchases that have been included in larger numismatic job lots)

Agreed. Best silver to stack in my opinion are those generic rounds you can get for $.49 over spot.

I'm partial to 100 oz bars: very low premium, nice size, easy to sell and not worry about shipping.

I agree that bullion bars and rounds are the best. 100 oz bars aren't within my budget, so I would probably stick to 1 oz pieces and add to the stack frequently. The premium will be a little more, but I think 1 oz will be easier to offload than 100 oz bars.

For the price of 100 oz silver bars, you should probably consider gold, as well.

The best silver to stack? Silver that's free, from dirtfishing or found at face via roll hunting. I've gained thousands of silvers that way. If I can do it, so can you.

I have done far better investment wise buying low mintage foreign bullion coins than silver eagles, rounds and bars.

Philosophically, the scrap silver that I have accumulated over the years, has all come as a zero cost in numismatic job lots, relative to the targeted numismatic item that I was interested in that job lot.

The actual cost of the scrap silver that I have accumulated can only be guessed at.

My opinion is that stacking constitutional sliver is the way to go. If the market for silver ever crashes (not saying it will) then you can at least spend the coins you've stacked and make back some of that money. Also, constitutional silver is still circulating around in some places, mostly in rolls, so it would be easier to obtain than bullion, and cheaper as well. Just my "two cents". :)
