    I'm about 2/3rds gold and 1/3rd silver. I was interested in platinum group metals for awhile but decided not to buy any.

    What percentage of each is in your "stack?"

    I personally have not added in any other metals and am right around 50/50 gold/silver at the current USD evaluation.

    I guess I'm around 20% gold and 80% silver, hoping I can sell in Jan of 2021 for $1900+/$25+ per ounce, but the wait could be longer.

    I feel like silver has to go higher than 25 before gold hits 1900, IMO.

    What is the advantage of investing in PMs when compared to stocks?

    Pull up a 100 year chart for gold and a 100 year chart for djia.
    Tell me what you see.

    A chart going back 10 years is relevant.
    Most of us will not live long enough to take advantage of a 100 year investment in PMs. . .

    PMs, IMHO, should be a small hedge to the rest of your investments and not the whole enchilada. How much? Many advisers put a cap of 10 percent on it. I suppose it’s a matter of personal comfort.

    They're shiny, and they don't clutter up your storage area with distracting dividends. ;)

    Instead of cluttering reinvest 'em. No clutter just more equity.

    According to Wiki there were 39 episodes of Flash Gordon. That's three 13's.

    In dollar terms, of near bullion value coins, I would say I am around 50-20-30 AU-AR-PT. I just bought about 5 ounces of PT proof eagles recently. I haven't added to AR for quite a while, I am out of room.

    Yeah, it's apparently blocking you from getting to your keyboard as often as we'd like. ;)

    Yeah, been busy. I have been buying, just some more odd stuff for me. I think I have bought 10 colonial notes, (6 of them printed by B Franklin), some interesting us gold, (no motto $10 and $20, etc), thai medieval etc.

    Yeah, life sometimes. :)

    My bullion (including circulated 90% silver coinage) stack is 92.5% silver, 7.5% gold, calculated by spot price value. I don't dabble in palladium or platinum.

    99% silver, 1% gold. 0 of the other PMs. Of silver, 1% bullion, 99% mostly US and German coinage. Gold is all coinage.

    One bad thing with coinage: I can't get myself to sell any of it- too attached.

    I would have to agree, I haven't bought any silver for years but that's just me, if you like it, stack it. After all, it's your money! :D
