Bought First Silver TodaySubmitted by mj429 on Thu, 04/12/2012 - 21:52
I was browsing yahoo and saw this article:
I thought that my wife would love it so I bought it. I started browsing around and noticed this coin:
I was born in the year of the dragon, and thought it'd be fitting to have my first silverish (1/2oz) coin be that, so again I purchased that coin. I felt kind of guilty for cheating on the good ol' USA, so I went to their mint website. I was pretty disappointed in the absurdly minimal selection, but I decided to settle on this coin:
I know these are kind of pretty much collector coins, but I these prices are pretty cheap (and I also know the Dinosaur one isn't silver...just amazing looking). I kind of have two questions. Why doesn't the US start minting awesome coins like Canada? After these two silver coin collector purchases...what should I start purchasing as investments? I only want to spend maybe like $150ish a month.
