I am a believer in pre 65 coins @ 90% for the lowest premiums over spot. Now is probably a good time to get in as prices have again dropped below $40 and oz. Rounds and the nicer coins are great as wee, it just depends on your purpose for wanting to own, barter trade, wealth preservation, collecting, investment, etc.

It really depends on if you're thinking SHTF or just investment. SHTF I would say yes for gold mapleleafs, since it's recognizable here in the states. Most don't know what a krugerrand looks like. Maybe even ingots, bars. I'm still on the silver budget, but dreaming of gold. LOL

I would go with the Maples since they are .9999 pure silver as opposed to Eagles which are .999 pure.

i agree with the others, if you are in accumulation phase buy the cheapest and get the most and that usually equates to junk 90% or generic .999 bullion. if you have a position established and are just topping off you can tolerate some bigger premium stuff like the gov't issued stuff you mention..

if you want to trade with it, buy something that people are going to recognize (pre '65, or well known mints - e.g., maple leafs) - you could trade these with anyone for their full value

if you want to preserve wealth buy silver which is closer to the spot price (sliver rounds by relatively well known mints - e.g., kitco rounds) - you would likely have to go to a metals dealer to extract the full value

if you want to preserve wealth due to inflation, but don't think the world will fall apart, consider the GLD ETF - your brokerage will trade this in at full value for you quickly

cost average your buying. Start by making a "base" purchase and then all future purchases can be averaged against that.

The best silver to buy is junk silver, also known as pre-1965 US dimes, quarters, and halves. This will give you the most ounces for the fewest dollars. Try to get all dimes since these are better for barter.

DO NOT buy paper silver like an ETF. If you don't hold it, you don't own it. Only buy physical silver and keep it in your possession - not a safe deposit box or anywhere else where someone else will have a claim against it.

Remember the number one rule is... If you don't hold it, you don't own it

Bettersafe: while tulving.com is consistently the lowest price dealer, they have too high a minimum order for what the original poster said he can spend.

I would recommend that you find a local dealer that you can trust and that has reasonable premiums and try to establish a relationship with that store. Beyond that, I believe you'll find that on any given day - either apmex.com or gainesvillecoins.com or providentmetals.com will have the lowest price.

My bad - you are correct - tulving essentially requires you purchase 500 ounces. A year ago $10K would have been enough for that amount...but times have changed....maybe Tulving needs to lower their minimum.

Aside from them I would try a local dealer but check their premium vs. the 3 dealers mentioned by HogSnapper making sure to include shipping costs.

As far as what type of silver - pretty much a personal choice. Bars, rounds, junk - I don't think there is a wrong answer although I wouldn't get bars bigger than 10 ounces each.

I will save you a bit of time and direct you to this site for comparing the online options

http://www.goldshark.com/products/si...ns-rounds.html

You can input what you want to buy and how many and it will "shop" it for you

Make sure you check the "credit card" checkbox if that is how you are paying as that will result in a higher price with some dealers.
