I remember the elders saying that during the war, gold is more valuable than money. They must have experienced this realisation during the Japanese occupation in which they traded their pieces of jewelery for food or release.
These days, precious metals such as gold and silver can be used as hedges against both inflation and economic downturn. Investing in bullion is a much better bet than keeping cash due to the latter's fluctuating currency exchange rates. Silver coins have become more popular as collectibles as they are more affordable. As collectibles, they are far higher in value than their actual bullion value.
Through Monex Deposit Company (MDC) you can purchase silver, gold or other precious metals and coins for immediate personal delivery or arrange for convenient and safe storage at an independent bank or depository.
