I'm wondering if it might be time to cash those silver coins in. I hadn't thought much about it. We keep hearing about the rising cost of gold bullion, and how people are cashing in on all their old gold jewelry, but the rising price of silver isn't stressed quite as much. Or maybe I just haven't been paying attention. Last week Beth said that someone she knows had sold some silver coins - which made her remember mine - and made quite a bit from them. She said maybe I'd want to sell mine.
Maybe I should. They've just been stashed away somewhere all these years, and I'm not doing anything with them. Silver may not be worth as much as gold bullion, but my coins are definitely worth more than face value. The current price of silver is getting close to $50/oz. I'm not sure how many ounces of silver are in my coins, but it might be worth at least taking them to someone who's willing to buy gold bullion and silver, just to see how much I could get from them.
I may or may not decide to sell them, but it would be fun to find out how much I might get. I could find out, hold onto my coins, and consider them an investment!
