Welcome to Ellpolicy! Of course, we all know that all that glitters is not necessarily gold. At the same time, you might find yourself a bit surprised and taken aback to discover that some of the stuff that doesn’t glitter is just as good as gold!
Naturally we don’t mean to imply that silver could possibly rival the value of gold, but silver has a ton of value in and of itself – and it’s easier to acquire. You should see the pile of “junk scrap silver” that we have collected over the years without much money into it at all!
At some point in your life, you have likely seen people digging through trash cans searching for aluminum cans. Is that lowly can worth even a fraction of an ounce of scrap silver? No. But, the can is easy for people to find and then turn in for their few dollars in return.
For those people, the cans are valuable. For others, silver is enough. For others, still, they will not be satisfied unless they find themselves sitting on pounds of gold. It’s all relative.
Anyway, just one of those things to ponder as you consider what your own investment strategies might look like. You may not be able to invest in gold. You may be surprised, however, at what you CAN invest in that will suit your portfolio just fine. Time to explore your options!
