Why is silver such a strategic investment?

Top 5 reasons:

  1. As a tangible precious metal, silver bullion has an internationally recognized value that poses to hold strong against a declining dollar, mounting federal debt, a bankrupt fiat money system, and insecurity in traditional electronic stock/bond markets.
  2. As a physically rare metal, silver has been considered a medium of exchange and value for thousands of years of world history, including in the Bible.
  3. Silver has many industrial uses in manufac¬tured items like batteries, iPods, and flat-screen TV’s, keeping the demand for silver high among investors and businesses alike.
  4. Silver is relatively inexpensive and easy to own. Unlike gold, which is hundreds of dollars per ounce, silver is a more affordable precious metal. This low price makes it easier to buy, sell, and trade.
  5. Silver is rare. The above-ground stock of silver has decreased from 2.1 billion ounces in 1990 to around 800 million ounces in 2008. (According to studies by the CPM Group and FinancialSense.com)

Why buy silver instead of gold?

While CCI sells both silver and gold, we prefer silver. Silver’s low price ratio to gold makes silver the more favored metal for many investors. In March of 2008, silver was at $21/ oz. At the same time, gold reached its 10-year high of only about $1,010/oz. Silver is also far less expensive than gold, mitigating the risk of counterfeit or fraudulent metal.

Why is CCI cheaper than my coin shop and most dealers?

It’s simple. Coin shops have multiple employees, office rent, building maintenance, and many other overhead expenses. CCI can provide cheap bullion products at lower rates than coin shops because we don’t have any of those expenses. We buy direct from some of the nation’s largest distributors, so you get many of the same great silver products, just without the additional costs associated with brick-and-mortar stores.
