Great video with two very good physical metal investors. It is a long video (28 min), but good information. Click here. These guys have been in precious metals since the beginning.
They talk about gold and silver as real money vs. global fiat currencies. They also talk about gold over silver as an investment. Although silver is volatile, buy whatever physical metal you can afford as a base, and then work towards having both metals. Under the current environment, it is better to have some physical silver than no physical metal at all. If you have lots of money to invest, buy physical gold first.
