Thoughts on 90% Silver Coins vs. Silver Bullion

The guy in these video’s presents some interesting thoughts to consider as we try to protect ourselves with silver bullion.

Apart from the debate over 90% silver coins vs. bullion silver, I thought it important to note he talks about the changes made in laws (Financial Regulatory Reform Bill and Healthcare Reform Bill) making coin dealers fall into the same category as banks and other financial institutions.

It would seem to me the government is preparing to close the doors on silver investors from accumulating government issued silver coins. If we’re going to accumulate silver eagles or other denominated 90% silver coins, it might be best to accumulate those coins before January 1, 2012 when coin dealers will then be required by law to report to the IRS your silver purchases.

Hello? Can you see the door closing?

After January 1, 2012, the federal government could very possibly implement price controls on what coin dealers were allowed to give you for your denominated silver coins. It seems to me this is a pretty good argument for not accumulating ONLY denominated silver coins, but to also own silver rounds and silver bars.

Of course, I don’t know what the federal government might do in the future. These ideas are just something else to think about.
