A quick look at why you might prefer to keep your wealth in silver instead of dollars. Fiat currency is potentially limitless, but precious metals like gold and silver retain value because their supply is limited.

Gold is edible. Some Asian countries put gold in fruit, jelly snacks, coffee, and tea. Since at least the 1500s, Europeans have been putting gold leaf in bottles of liquor, such as Danziger Goldwasser and Goldschlager.
Alternatives include precious metals futures and options contracts, government certificates, “digital gold,” exchange traded funds (ETFs), mutual funds, mining shares, as well as buying the physical bullion itself.
