Silver holdings and investing has been quite controversial in America. Most people might know the story of how America went off the gold standard and they might associate this story with gold and silver. Many believe going off the gold standard caused over flow of cash, which made holding cash not a wise investment. Many people lost their fortunes very fast and they might not have been even completely aware of what is going on. A person who owns silver bullion and silver ingots is in a completely different situation, and I would like to discuss this matter further in my next post.
