A Brief History of Gold and Silver
Gold and Silver have a historic prominence as sound money. For thousands of years, it was widely used as money in day-to-day commerce. Precious metals have proven to be a store of value, a trusted unit of account, and an affordable medium of exchange which are the key attributes of sound money.
Today, gold and silver largely sits idle – in individual’s private reserves or bank safety deposit boxes. Millions of individuals and corporations around the world hold hundreds of millions of ounces of investment grade silver in the hopes that it can provide financial protection and the possibility of a better return of value. While this may well happen, there is no guarantee.
