Comment: Depends WHY you are buying.

Depends WHY you are buying.

To guarantee holding some wealth against inflation? For an apocalypse to have silver and gold to barter? As an investment over other investments?

If it is just one investment over another to make money (federal reserve notes) silver or gold might not be the best investment. But if you are buying for either of the other two reasons, but whatever you can under spot or as close to spot as possible.
