Silver as an investment

Where to buy Silver

Where should I buy precious metals?

This is an important question that you should ask yourself when making an investment in precious metals.

This page has my suggestions. I will be updating it periodically as I come across more vendors and only after I try them out at least once :). Hopefully to save you some frustration.

If you are in New Zealand, I recommend : Use the coupon code silveristhenew for an additional $20 (NZ$) off the price. Mike Maloney has built an excellent site to gain info and offers a little more than a simple buy/sell transaction. It does have a slightly higher price. As a customer of Mike’s, he will give you some of his analysis on the markets. Use the coupon code 1299goldsilver or 1299silveristhenew for a discount on your purchase. I wrote a review of them here, but the short of it is that I highly recommend them. They don’t post prices on their site but came in lower than APMEX after talking with Ben. They also offer 401K and IRA rollover into physical metals. Use the coupon code nov10ira or tell them silveristhenew sent you for a discount.
Ben has been doing this for over 10 years AND he has cheaper prices on most products than anyone out there! To get current prices, or if you are interested, be sure to stop by or call Ben (877.825.6408), you won’t regret it.

APMEX: They have an excellent selection of silver, gold, platinum and palladium products as well as a collection of numismatic coins for the collectors out there. If there is a deal on shipping, the prices are reasonable.

Check back as this page is updated with current coin dealers that I have done business with.

I plan to purchase from the following but have not yet. As soon as I do, I will comment on them:



As I follow the markets of gold and silver, I have come across a few places that have contests, giveaways, raffles or ideas to acquire free silver or gold. Of course NOTHING is free but these all require something other than fiat currency. Most of them require time or contest entry. Below is a list of each place with the requirements of acquiring the silver:

APMEX [sign up]: APMEX is a bullion dealer that has a lot of giveaways and contests giving away silver or gold for retweeting or commenting on their facebook page. They also have a monthly giveaway.

less frequent but they still do giveaways:

endlessmountain [watch youtube channel]: endlessmountain is a good channel to follow on youtube and every once in a while he will have a contest to win silver.

qualitysilverbullion [watch youtube channel]: sometimes this guy has a silver giveaway.

@LibertyInvest [follow twitter account]: they occasionally give away silver to a lucky follower.


FYI article on monex (not sure I would ever buy from them at this point) : LA Times

I also suggest preparing for economic uncertainty with eFoods storable food.

    Wow silver has been around for years. Well I’m only 27 years old and I never heard this info. I brought 40 oz of silver last month because the fed will continue to print money and @Alex 10 years I predicting the next 6 to 3f months. Have you seen the debt ceiling these days. Bernacke just raised the debt ceiling and the US is in 14. 5 trillion debt. Smh so sad you better start buying silver or your life will be doomed.

    Silver is still very cheap. According to the Gold/Silver Ratio Silver will outperfom Gold. Furthermore, I think if JP Morgan has to close their short positions the ratio will drop even lower. Is a ratio of 1 possible in a crazy mania?
    Currently the ratio is @ 37 – According to this text there is still much potential.

    Even the Wall Street Journal is starting to mention the unavoidable currency debasement. Currency debasement means that $50,000 nest egg you had for your family is still there, but in Mexico’s debasement in 1993, you wake up one day
    and you are now holding the “Old Peso”. It will now take 1000 “Old Pesos”
    to buy 1 “New Peso”. So that $50,000.00 nest egg is still there, only it takes
    5000 pesos to buy a $5.00 lunch! Your $50,000.00 nest egg will now buy
    you only two weeks worth of lunches. The Government will not warn you,
    and those not holding something with intrinsic value, (like Gold or Silver)
    will have nothing but useless scraps of paper. Buy and hold physical Silver.
