Even though gold and silver are at high prices, I am concerned about the future of our economy and would like to buy more gold and silver coins. I would be interested in opinions regarding several issues: Is it better to buy gold and silver coins from a local coin shop, from an online site like Monex or somewhere else? Is there a reason to buy ingots rather than coins? Is it better to own gold or silver coins? Silver seems to be relatively cheaper now and the smaller denominations would be more practical in an economic collapse if the dollar became worthless. What about bags of junk silver instead of American Eagles? You can buy bags of old pre-1965 dimes and quarters for $16.51 an ounce vs. $18.14 for American Eagles. For anybody who thinks gold is going down to $500 an ounce, got any gold or silver you want to sell?
