Patrick Heller: Eagles aren't the best way to own silver


10:55a ET Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

U.S. eagles and Canadian maples are not the best way to own silver because there's too much premium in the price, Patrick A. Heller of Liberty Coin Service in Lansing, Michigan, writes this week at Numismatic News.

Heller writes: "It is possible to buy the old U.S. 90-percent silver dimes and quarters (and often half dollars) struck up to 1964 at a lower cost per ounce of silver content. Privately manufactured silver rounds and ingots in sizes of 1, 10, and 100 ounces can also be acquired for a lower premium than silver eagles."

Heller's commentary is headlined "Eagles Not Best Way to Own Silver" and it's posted at Numismatic News here:
