With the rate at which the dollar is loosing value and the problems facing our country in the near future, I'm thinking of buying some silver and gold. I'm not interested at all in buying collectable coins. I've found several websites that sell one ounce silver rounds that look like coins and are stamped with what they are as far as purity and weight. They cost about $30 per ounce (silver) with a $5 shipping charge per order. I may start buying a few per month like I do everything else I am stockpiling. If the dollar goes like it did in Russia years ago, a wheelbarrow full of $100 bills couldn't buy you a loaf of bread. Anyone have any experience investing in this kind of thing?
