Before you invest your money in gold or silver, you have to know some important things.
It is really essential for an investor to first understand the financial systems and the economy and dominant in the market previously before he decides what to invest in.
For long time silver and gold have been de-monetized their values only fall and rise with manufacturing demand because social demand for them as safe-haven money is quiet limited.
If the economy goes into a profound depression, the uncertainty of retirement security, job security, and the close certainty of rising inflation, caused by Federal Reserve intervention and government deficits into shoring up failing banks and other private businesses, will cause more people, as well as many businesses, to exchange dollars for silver and gold.
Right now there is a preference for gold rather than silver as a security hedge.
For the past 5,000 years, Gold is the only money that has never failed in the history of its use by humans.
There is only sufficient investment-grade gold accessible for a person to own 1/3rd of an ounce, on the other hand, for silver there is only plenty investment grade silver on Earth for each person to own 1/14th of an ounce.
Silver is presently less investment grade available on Earth for investors to purchase than there is gold. Aside from investing silver is the most thermally, electrically conductive metal on earth that has no known alternatives.
Again all the way through human history, gold has been reappraised to account for all excess currency in circulation.
Investing in gold is the safest in the time of crisis; it has the greatest potential to increase your wealth.
In addition, Gold is entirely private and anonymous investment that is also extremely portable.
