Apmex, 20$ shipping but fast delivery.

Gainesville coins actually want you to call them after placing a order and also fax a copy of your credit card and talk with the person as well...took over 3 weeks to get my order... i feel a lack of confidentiality with them. all and all apmex makes my life easy despite their 20$ over priced shipping.

Gun Shows

I have seen silver and gold for sale at gun shows. Mostly I go to my local coin shop, however, every coin shop I have ever been to focuses on numismatic value, which I don't care about. They hate Ron Paul, and rat people out for liberty dollars.

Craigslist?

Just bought some off a Craigslist listing.
1986 Libertad 1oz - $35
2 Nice Morgan $$$ $30 ea.
10 "Merc" Dimes $20

Local, All Cash, No Tax, No Shipping, No Records. Helped a guy selling his father-in-law's "stuff" for his wife. Not a "Super Deal", but a fair price.
He only had the Libertad "Onza" listed, the rest was "un-listed", he still has 5 Morgans left. Call and ask what else they have.
>>>Of course, use caution on large purchases.<<<

Found a guy in the Pennysaver once too!
Retired and selling stuff his Dad left him ages ago.
(also had much more than in the ad.)

Junk Silver

I've been buying on eBay for quite a while - all 90% silver coins. I've been using a sniping program to acquire it at very close to melt value. I figure with the Mayan apocalypse, zombies overtaking us or the Republicans and Democrats I want something easy to buy what I need with. I'm thinking more barter but I still own silver.

Go to your local coin shop.

Go to your local coin shop. They almost always sell at spot, or a few pennies above. Actually, this is a terrible place to ask, as anywhere within the libertarian movement is a prime advertising space for internet dealers.

pay with

cash and go to a coin dealer.

make sure he is BBB accredited

no sales tax.
but if you are only wanting to buy a small amount you should check out your local precious metals dealer or coin shop.

These are all great sources

I have ordered from a few listed below. Also, I go to a Gold buyer place that you see on every street corner these days and ask if they have any bullion on hand. For me in the Houston area it's Regal Gold buyer. I have devoted a good relationship with the management and sometimes on payday I'll swing by and pick up a few eagles or whatever they have on hand. I can't speak for all of those shady places but this one is very discreet and sells for $2-$3 over spot for premium and $1-$2 over spot generic depending on how many OZ you get. This way you have silver in hand same day opposed to waiting for it in the mail and paying shipping. Again I can't speak for other stores but you might be able to find one in your area that will sell to you and turn a small profit as they probably just purchased the bullion that day for a few bucks under spot.. Another benefit I've found to doing it this way is that when I try to save up for a larger online purchase something else may come up before I can make the purchase whereas just buying a few OZ on payday ensures that I am always adding to my post apocolyptic get out of town fund... Good luck.

Another point I forgot to add...

If your as paranoid as I am, you can ask them not to document your address in thier system as we all know that systems can be hacked and stores customer files can be stolen.. It would literally be a gold mine if someone stole thier customer files and had home addresses on all of thier gold/silver buying customers.. The stores I deal with agree not to take down my home address as long as my purchase is under $10,000 which for me is not even close to being a problem.. If I'm not mistaken they have to report to the Feds if you purchase over $10,000. Personally I would rather my local neighborhood thief know about my silver collecting hobby than the federal govornment... I can take on one crook but not a whole army of crooks...

Keep in mind

those who use conventional thinking often do not get too far ahead. At least do not put more that 50% of your savings into silver.

Since none of us could read the future (von Mises misread potential of Asia, for example), Milton Friedman was wise to comment on inflation: "You cannot personally escape it if government prints money. The best thing you can do for yourself is to spend money to enjoy life NOW."

Since it is possible that due to weaker dollar, high fuel prices make international travel a luxury beyond what an average American can afford, taking your loveone on a luxury trip might be the last chance you may have as a young person.

apmex.com

I had a good experience buying silver with apmex.com. Be careful what type of silver you buy - do some research. Avoid numismatics at all costs.

Also, providentmetals.com for another one (customer here).

Plus, these sellers also often have offers for mixes of "junk silver" (old U.S. mints coins) for affordable premiums as well, besides private bullion and U.S./other national mints' current production (providentmetals does, anyway).

Great company, and if you need to sell your physical silver later on, they'll buy it back from you (at market buying prices).

Have you tried your local
