Physical Silver as Wealth Protection

Physical silver has been a trusted store of wealth for over 2,500 years, never depreciating to zero. No single government or financial institution can control precious metals, nor can they be printed out of thin air like paper currencies. As finite resources, silver, similar to gold has maintained monetary value across all cultures, both in the past and present. Moreover, silver, like gold, is a dual investment vehicle, serving as both a safe-haven asset and an asset with abundant industrial/commercial uses, providing benefits not found in other assets.

Silver is often referred to as the 'poor man's gold' because it is significantly less expensive per ounce, making it more affordable for the masses. Its lower value provides greater divisibility, making it the best option for frontline barter and trade, should the need arise. This practicality is a key reason why silver has historically been used more frequently as coinage compared to gold.

Historically, silver outperforms gold by a strong margin during the longer market cycle upswings, making it a more attractive option for those seeking growth.  However, it is important to note that while silver can be more volatile on the upside, this is also true for the downside.

Silver is a Formidable Hedge

Silver Hedges the Devaluation of the Dollar & Inflation

The government's response to the 2008 and 2020 financial crises was to print massive amounts of money, flooding the economy with cheap currency. This has led to a devalued dollar, massive debt deficits, and rising costs for basic necessities — also known as inflation. Inflation is a silent tax hurting savers, retirees, and people on fixed incomes the most.

Inflation erodes the purchasing power of paper currencies like the dollar, euro, and pound, diminishing the value of cash, bank deposits, and other investments over time. Silver, much like gold, protects wealth against inflation because its value doesn't depend on fiat paper currencies. During periods of runaway inflation, local currencies can become worthless, driving investors to seek safety in alternative assets such as silver and gold.

Silver's additional help as a hedge against inflation comes from its primary use, which is industrial. The rising costs of thousands of products that use silver help drive its price upward during these painful times, offering protection against inflation.

Silver is a Hedge Against Recessions & Economic Crisis

Similar to gold, silver often goes up when other assets and markets go down, providing protection when stocks or real estate drop in value. This makes silver an effective hedge, cushioning your portfolio against massive losses during times of recessions, economic crises, stagflation, war, and currency crises.

For instance, in response to the 2008 financial crisis and the subsequent years from 2008 to 2011, silver prices soared to nearly $50 an ounce as investors sought refuge from financial instability in U.S. stocks and real estate, as well as from the heavily indebted European Union during the EU Sovereign Debt Crisis. Given the growing risks in today’s global financial system, silver's role as a hedge against risk is likely to become even more significant.

Silver Hedges Geopolitical Risk

Investments in property, stocks, cash deposits, or bonds are heavily influenced by political decisions. To safeguard wealth from political turmoil and irresponsible government policies, it is prudent to invest in assets whose value isn't controlled by any bank, country, or politician. Silver, akin to gold, allows for investment in a real asset with inherent value, appreciating during times of political or social unrest, world tensions, and war.

Silver Hedges Systemic Risks

The surge in investments in highly speculative and risky financial products such as cryptocurrencies, tech stocks, derivatives, CFDs, and spread betting, coupled with unsustainable levels of debt taken on by major economies, points to a global financial system fraught with risk. Buying silver as part of your investment strategy can protect wealth against these significant economic and systemic risks.

Why Physical Silver vs. Paper ETFs or Mining Stocks?

Silver is real, genuine, and honest money. These paper investments do not provide the same benefits as owning physical silver.

Silver may not be used in the United States’ current banking currency system, but it remains true money. The U.S. like all other countries, has been on and off a silver standard for thousands of years. Silver has been used in coinage more frequently than gold, demonstrating its long-term value and reliability.

Alongside gold, silver is considered the ultimate form of money based on several facts:

  1. Physical silver offers portability, privacy in transactions, and serves as a valuable means of passing wealth to future generations.
  2. No Counterparty Risk: Holding physical silver means you don’t rely on another party to fulfill a contract or promise, unlike stocks, bonds, or other investments.
  3. No Default Risk: Owning physical silver eliminates the risk of default, a concern for almost every other type of investment.
  4. It exists outside of a digital world and cannot be wiped out with one keystroke.
  5. In times of inflation, such as we have experienced since 2021, silver and gold mining stocks have performed poorly despite rising physical silver and gold prices. Even with gold reaching new all-time highs, mining stocks have suffered severely due to rising labor costs, exploration costs, equipment costs, oil costs, and increased regulation costs which erode profit faster than revenue can rise.

These qualities highlight why physical silver is considered a reliable and enduring form of real money.
