Silver and Precious Metals Investing 101

This is Part 1 of my "How to" video of getting started into silver and precious metal bullion or coin investing. A few of my viewers wanted to know where to begin, so here's some information and tips for you on the subject, while showing you some of the things I chose to buy. With silver investing there's no right or wrong product, whether it's coins, bars or rounds, but there are things that may make one more interesting than another to you. I am a bit of a niche buyer myself and prefer buying things that are unique or artistic that may have some value over the bullion spot price, where a lot of other people prefer to buy for the silver bullion only and pay the lowest premiums possible. Both methods are valid ways to invest. Precious metals investing is a great way to protect your funds from the rapid deflation of currency, balance a stock portfolio and make sure you've got a decent retirement.
