Reader Question: If the U.S. dollar crashes, which forms of silver will be more valuable?

Yes, it’s possible that the more common bullion coins, such asEagles, Maples, and Kangaroos will purchase slightly more than a silver round or a bar. But once every citizen in the U.S. realizes they need a tangible and reliable currency, they will scramble for and accept anything silver (or gold) they can get their hands on.

That’s one of many reasons we discourage folks from sinking their money into any so-called “rarities,” collectibles, proofs, or numismatic or semi-numismatic coins.
