Known for his pioneering research on the seven "sparks" that trigger explosive profits in the small-cap sector.
Legendary investor Jim Rogers sees now as a great time to load up on gold and silver coins - and he's not alone.
A record 7.5 million ounces of silver coins were sold in January as investors hunted for a safe haven investment.
"You can't get [silver coins]. They sell out," Rogers, who owns a rare 2013 silver coin, said on Yahoo! Finance's "The Daily Ticker." "Several mints have run out of coins because everybody's worried about the future of the world."
And 150,000 ounces of American Eagle gold coins were sold in January, the highest monthly total since July 2010.
"Gold has been up 12 years in a row which is extremely unusual for anything," added Rogers. "A lot of speculators are rushing into gold right now. I'm not rushing into gold, but I'm certainly not selling it. If it goes down, I'm buying more."
While gold is only up half a percentage point so far this year, silver is up around 5%.
Many analysts, including Money Morning Global Resources Specialist Peter Krauth, see both metals ending the year higher, especially silver.
Gold and silver will be spurred by the inflationary actions of central banks, strong investor demand and decreased supplies. Krauth expects silver to outperform gold because of the added demand from its various industrial uses, and its low price compared with gold.
In fact, Krauth sees silver prices, currently trading around $31.50 an ounce, reaching $54 an ounce. He sees gold, now trading at $1,675 an ounce, hitting $2,200 an ounce during 2013.
For those interested in buying gold, silver, or both, here are a few ways.
