Gold vs Silver
When I first bought into silver, buying gold was not even in question. Silver is inexpensive, you can melt it, and is easily tradeable. However, there is one thing about silver that gold will always have the edge over.
When I speak about silver trading, I am referring to buying, selling, and melting. Those three reasons is why collecting silver instead of gold is favorable. I will admit, up until about a month ago, I never desired buying gold. It’s too expensive, it’s way too risky to melt, and I did not recognize the value. Until now.
My most recent purchase of 12 grams of gold has me super excited! It’s like why did I ever by silver? For a moment, I seriously considered selling all my silver and just buying gold. The precious metal is striking and beautiful. You feel like you just moved up a level in life when you own gold! The decision to buy gold is a mature investment.
The true value in owning gold to me, is in the confidence you have in owning a metal that you truly believe in for the near future. Let me explain. I love silver. I love the shine, the way it melts, and the process of pouring. I own a website called betonsilver.com for Christ sakes! To be clear, (crystal clear), silver is the precious metal of unmanageable opportunity! And it is because of that, I truly believe, “if you have silver, then you have money,” says Tommy from @stacking.NYC on Instagram. However what I realized, is that silver is for today, while gold is for tomorrow.
Now that is not a knock on silver. In fact, it’s the “ah-ha” moment that brought clarity to a racing hamster-wheel mind of mine. And it makes sense. Silver will be the currency of trade sooner than you think. But whoever owns gold, may be king!
