Silver Bullion vs Gold Bullion as an investment

Discussion in 'Bullion Investing' started by masterswimmer, Mar 8, 2019.

  1. A bullion coin can be found under melt if you are ready to put up with a few phone calls. For example I picked up a P.C.G.S. first strike $50 AGE from a switch and bait add I saw on tv, advertised for 1295 when gold had just jumped to 1310 so I gabbed it.

    I hope you didnt count on the word "FIRST STRIKE" to give the coin any
    Added value, this is simply a buzz word that is used by companies to
    Make you believe you got something special another word they us
    "IS FIRST DAY OF ISSUE" dont let them fool you these term are
    Meaningless :(

    Gold is the most liquid asset in the world. There is less gold per capita every single day that passes, thus why it has remained the king of the financial world since the start of time.

    Silver is a joke. Over produced, over hyped to sell to the masses Hoping to get rich quick. Hoping to put in pennies and hit it big. Much like tonights powerball drawing, the players always lose. Its Not even a precious metal. $14 ain't too precious.

    Comparing Gold and Silver is nutso.

    I'm trying to imagine the path of life choices that leaves someone compelled to heap praise on one semi-inert metal, while heaping contempt upon the semi-inert metal directly above it in the periodic table, and simultaneously ignoring the semi-inert metals to the left of each.

    Then again, I guess it's no more silly than getting into fist-fights over sports teams.

    In sports there are knuckle dragging morons who support the New England Patriots. In investing there are apes who are evolved enough to know some of the problems with silver investing but still hype gold. Those "collectors" are like chimpanzees someone has dressed up in a tie and reading glasses. They're basically still just flinging poop.

    " a few" 10x rips ? You mean exactly 2 ?
    The first one some brothers went to prison, the next time it was because everyone was convinced the world was over.

    With these 2 extraordinary events silver was able to rise to the lofty heights of ..... $49. Oh boy. I know I know you all sold at $49. Amazing how after all the years of "too da moon" nonsense and Ted Butler types screaming about $500 + silver everyone now claims they sold close to $49. Lol I guarantee a lot of posters on this board have brown eyes. Real brown eyes.

    So after 2 extraordinary events silver rise to $49. Oh boy Oh boy. As soon as the pandamonium calmed down silver quickly got its are stomped, losing 5-8 times more of its value than gold. Thats some too da moon.

    Oh yes, a chart from the US geological survey.

    Weren't they the ones guaranteeing silver would be extinct by 2020 ?

    Lol. Roflmao.
  9. I know the first strike is not all that important but still under melt, and for an ms70. The point is gold and silver can be found for under melt if you take the time and are willing to wait for the rare opportunity.
  10. Is gold reaches it's all time high from to days cost you would gain about 510/oz. if silver were to hit it's all time high from to days price you would gain 25/oz. at 86:1 gold silver ratio that's a 2150 profit on the silver compared to the 510. the more volatile silver looks pretty attractive.

    A couple things, first never buy graded bullion or get bullion graded
    If you can get it below melt, that should be your focus the other things
    Are just wishful thinking.

  12. I purchased the ms70 already graded P.C.G.S. FS $50 AGE for 14 under spot. no Brain er. The grade was a little icing on the cake.

    I am glad that you got for under spot :) however being graded MS70 isnt
    Anything all that special, just saying....

    Do these on line Bullion dealers ever look at the price or spot of gold... its dropping but there prices don't. I chose to start stacking some 1/10 ouncers for a while. either gold or platinum and of course I picked wrong one gold....platinum is looking like a better deal at the present.. gold is easier to say and spell there..

    Most dealers take in stock at set prices or prices that they pay, so you will
    Never see them drop prices in there day to day operation, just because they
    Have to eat to...LOL

    Sorry but this is just more silver nonsense.

    If the Ken Griffey Jr Upper Deck rookie that used to be worth $250 but now is worth 3 cents returns to its all time high then a $60 investment would be worth half a million. But guess what ? It never will.

    Calling something a good investment simply because it lost so much from its high is..... Well about what I expect from the silver crowd.

    Just the same, your quoted dollars off all time highs for both gold and silver are no where near even close to accurate.
  18. Ok. you are right my calcs are off. If I use 1850 for a high - 1277= 573/oz gold. If I use 45.83 for a high - 14.98= 30.85/oz silver x 80:1 ratio= 2468 or am I wrong. Highs from kitco london fixed. Current price from kitco at 1:44 pm 4/25/19. Never is a long road with no turns in it. 1 major crises and hold on to your seat. Like I said before. I look at my gold as a safe store of wealth and my silver more as an investment. you do think gold will get back or higher then it's high don't you? might take a while but it will and silver will go along for the ride. The 2468 looks darn good compered to 573. I will always buy both.

    I am going to be honest with you.

    NO I don't think silver will ever get back to $50. At least not in the next 150 years which is really all we care about right ?

    Gold - maybe but very likely won't break $2000 to make its all time high never in our lives. Silver absolutely won't.

    Its a false narrative to hang onto previous highs and some kind measuring stick that the asset must return to.

    I think people really underestimate how much silver exists, how much new is being mined daily and really how little is truly lost to industry. I believe silvers true value is $6-$8 and its being propped up by tens of millions of speculators who still believe the to da moon malarkey that the silver industry has been promising since before any of us were born.

    Hey GoldC I admit I one of the those million speculators..... but not at those 50ish on silver but 20 to 30 and gold if it gets to 17 -18...I still can make doe ray me. I set my expectation low …. like I do my women...… little on the dirty side...………

    There is allot, of course but there is more value then just the bullion, as a collector
    Of 10 OZ silver bars, many defunct mines bars are worth a small fortune by smelters such as JM, Matthey, Englehard and many others so again it depends
    On who dug it up...LOL
