A first in my collection I'm happy to show a few Silver Strikes that I recently picked up from JAAS on our Coin Discord.
More info on Silver Strikes can be found at https://www.silverstrikers.com/
The definition is Limited Edition silver token won from slot machines and is in a protective plastic holder. Some call them "Silver Premium Tokens", but most of us just call them "Silver Strikes". These tokens are issued in many casinos throughout the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and Cruise Ships. The first of these tokens were won from slot machines in the Reno/Tahoe area of Nevada in 1992.
A few new picks up for the start of 2021
I had been wanting to get some fractional silver/bullion to go along with the 90% constitutional silver that I like to collect. I found these at Monarch Precious Metals
I feel it's good to have some fractional silver around and on hand. Most people agree with gold as 1 ounce of gold is harder to break up and harder to spend in a situation where you might only need a small amount of fiat. I feel like the same can go for silver as well. With silver hitting close to $30/ounce and not knowing where it might could go to having some fractional silver as well could give you smaller amounts that would be easier to spend.
I ended up picking up a few of these right before the spike of premiums this last week with the recent Silver Squeeze that pushed premiums up and saw many dealers out of stock
Just a simple update and pick ups for Jan 2021
I participated in an online auction and was able to pickup a few items that I would like to share and also a few items from a donation stream on Youtube
Over the last few days we've seen a dip in the silver spot price. A price that was hovering in the $27 dollar range has dipped down and now hovering around $22 or so. What is your strategy? Do you always wait for the lowest price or just try to cost average your inventory. For Me if the deal is good or its a piece that I want then price doesn't really matter and I'm buying when I'm able, I just recently picked up $10 Face of 90% Silver Dimes from Apmex, My goal is really to try and hold for retirement and just price cost average what I buy, Ive purchased at $11 and I've purchased at $30+ with the premiums. My feeling is it's good to have at any price! What are your thoughts?
