Yeah, like anything else... Would be cool to collect, but as a " shite hits the fan, dollar collapses, precious metals as currency" perspective, would they be worth anymore than a generic 1oz silver

Nope. If you are going for the commodity as a pure hedge, the weight (and the condition to an extent) is pretty much what matters.

I mean, I'd like to own a PAMP piece, but I'd like to buy up small amounts of silver over time, as a pure hedge.

If you want to go the collectible route, I think high-grade Morgans are your best bet. These ceritified premium bars may just be a passing noveelty.

I think Morgan's are very neat, what makes them more attractive to you in your opinion?

No real reason, other than a relative gave me one as a gift when I was younger and I thought it was really cool that that coin came from 1888.

Obviously it's more of a sentimental thing. I don't even have a coin collection, but these threads and the research behind them are intriguing.

Yea the age factor is one thing that makes it very desirable. My father has a 25 cent note from between 1850-1870. I researched prices for it online and I wasn't impressed, although just being able to see it and study it was an experience in itself.

I've got more than enough Morgans... This would be strictly for hedging purposes.

Random question for the group...

If you were going to give coins as a gift, what do you choose? I know a few in here have mentioned giving/getting them as gifts and it has inspired me to look into giving them to my kids and nieces/nephews. Thanks for your opinions!

re: Tips from MT Coin Collectors
Basing off of my family, they have always provided gifts of silver eagles, walking liberty half dollars and morgan dollars. There was a phase where they purchased painted Peace Dollars, not sure if I would recommend it. My goal is to get the photos of what I gathered by tomorrow night and post them and provide some ideas from it.

The most recent big collectibles I would say would be proof sets of the 50 state quarters perhaps?

re: Tips from MT Coin Collectors
Sad day today. I got an email from chase today notifying that my account balance went below the amount I've set to notify me when I'm dangerously close to the abyss of over drafting ($35 fee/OD) and with payday not until next Tuesday, I had to sell some of my silver rounds (20-1oz rounds) and Scottsdale bars (5-1oz bars) to cover the gap.

BUT (there's always a but), there is a silver lining... I bought 3 American Silver Eagle proofs (1995p, 2002w & 2006w) with some of the money.

I'll post pics shortly (They're purty).

Rick, if you are handing out gifts, I am partial to Morgans.

I bought 30 different BU's just 3 summers ago. Watching the 3 coin-TV channels, dealers are now charging the same price for 20 different as I paid for 30.

I give New Orleans minted coins which were minted a century before the person was born.

My little brother was born in 2002. Kind of weird that he would be getting a coin from the 1900s.

Silver Eagles I see sell between $30-$50 in some cases. As was said earlier in the thread, buying the silver eagle from the mint will cost you a premium. If you buy in bulk online, I have seen prices stay steady with the price of silver.
