buying coins

681 Views 7 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  anette
Ok If I want to buy silver and or gold, mostly silver, what do I need to know about coins? I have heard the maple leaf is the purest form but is that the only viable silver? Is there any US mint silver that is silver? A book to get me started? I was looking on ebay but I really dont know what Im looking at.

Have you ever heard of "junk silver"? Old coins that are well circulated? I like this idea better tha valuable larger coins. For example, if times get to where US currency isn't worth much, or isn't accepted, you can use the old junk silver coins for your purchases. If all you have are the larger, more valuable coins, how do the people you are trading with make change for small purchases?
