  • bartering with silver coins/rounds -- acceptance?

    a youtuber and a private mint representative attend a ?festival? in new hampshire. and tries to make purchases with silver coins/rounds.

    BOUGHT STUFF ALL DAY WITH JUST SILVER! And the RESULTS of my "Ultimate Barter Test" will SHOCK YOU! (

    the mint rep. seems to be a known individual... that probably helped.!!
    but bottom line lots of vendors were glad to trade $2.00 items for a 90% dime.

    encouraging. ‚Äč

    We're getting ready to do a purchase. We don't have a fortune to sink into PMs, but it's just a hedge against the downfall of FRNs. Silver being generally non-recyclable from manufacturing uses like chips, it's a limited supply item and the value should remain level or increase. At least that's my thought.

      Silver supposedly has more industrial uses than gold per info from TnAndy back in the day. Makes sense.
      Boris- "He's famous, has picture on three dollar bill!"

      Rocky- "Wow! I've never even seen a three dollar bill!"

      Boris- "Is it my fault you're poor?"

        My concept has always been Gold AU is your savings account and Silver AG is your day to day money.
        Although eventually I suspect the day to day money will be copper rounds and .22lr's.
