Silver question on “How to buy and invest in physical gold and silver bullion”

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Yesterday, we were very delighted to receive this email from one of our readers regarding our book, How to buy and invest in physical gold and silver bullion:

I have been reading through your archives for the past few weeks, and also have just finished reading the gold and silver ebook. It is a wonderful resource, and I feel for the first time that I now have some educational starting points that will make any investing I do more of a strategy and less of a gamble.

I wanted to ask you about a point that came up in the gold and silver book – when talking about storage there was plenty of practical information about the security aspects, and a glancing mention of the fact that silver will corrode/tarnish and so will need to be kept in a “sealed” environment.

Could you possibly add some detail to that point? How sealed should it be? Absolutely airtight? Is there any way to clean it or reduce this problem without detracting from the value of the bullion/B Coin? Over what length of time will this be an issue?

Thanks again for a great e-book and for a very accessible and educational journal. I’m enjoying learning how to think again.

If you want to know the answer, you can look up this article on our other web site: More details about storing silver.
