Gold has received all the accolades and nearly all the ink ever since. Most "hard money" advocates will talk about gold as money for hours, as if it were religion. Lowly silver gets little or no time at all...
But don’t shy away from silver. Gold always moves first in a precious metals bull market because it is seen more as money, yet silver posts better percentage returns nearly every time there is a sustained rally in gold. So why do people still ignore silver, especially as it is priced so reasonably compared to gold right now?
There are five reasons that I see:
■ The 1873 demonetization of silver occurred roughly 100 years prior to the official end of the gold standard. Investors have short memories. So when they think of metal-backed currency, they think of the modern era’s more recent experiences with gold, despite silver’s richer monetary history.
■ Silver is known as an industrial metal, while gold is considered an alternative to currency, an inflation hedge, and a legitimate investment tool even by those not necessarily in the "hard money" camp. Yet silver functions often as a better inflation hedge alternative currency as well, even though few investors believe it.
■ Even though there is far more silver on earth than gold, the silver market is much smaller than the gold market. This makes transactions much more visible and the market more susceptible to large fluctuations. (Note: There is approximately 17.5 times more silver than gold in the world; coincidently, this is very close to the 16 to 1 monetary ratio of silver to gold that existed for thousands of years.)
■ The discovery of the great Comstock Lode in 1859 caused the great decline in silver as a monetary metal. The supply of silver gushing out of Nevada simply overwhelmed its monetary usefulness with the result that silver became viewed as an unreliable standard for paper currency.
■ As industrial economies of the world grew and photography was invented, a growing demand for silver began emerging for uses in these new areas. This industrial demand conflicted with silver’s monetary demand, which also caused volatility to silver’s purchasing power.
