I thought I was ahead of the curve on converting cash to physical assets, I was wrong.
And now is the time to keep at it.
I have bought much of my PM's off of eBay over the years. Just know the value going in, and you will do fine. Expect to pay a bit over spot, especially with the way things are now.
Amount of silver per coin:
Silver dollars contain 0.72344 Troy oz. silver content
Half dollars contain 0.36169 Troy oz silver content
Quarters contain 0.18084 Troy oz silver content
Dimes contain 0.0723 Troy oz silver content
Right now silver is $22 per Troy oz. So a half dollar would have a spot price of about $8. If I were buying right now, I would plan on paying about $9 per half dollar (including shipping.) Franklin halves are going to be your best bet, as they are not as "pretty" as walkers and are generally a bit cheaper.
