The precious metals have followed us through history for a very long time. There is a reason that gold and silver are still holding true as currency. This article offers a very interesting idea it is that using pure silver is better than junk silver. Are you familiar with the term junk silver. You may not be aware but some US coins contained a bit of silver many years ago. You can still find those coins and the silver value can be calculated.
This article makes the argument for simply investing in and having pure silver on hand when you are looking to barter in the collapse. Its a tough one to argue but there are many people who really like the idea of having junk silver and also like the fact that it is free. That’s hard to argue with as well.
