Investing in Silver: Coin Sales Hit Record Due to Bargain Prices

Silver Price Forecast

Despite the year's nearly 30% fall in silver prices, not everyone is sour on investing in silver. The U.S. Mint reported Tuesday that American Silver Eagle bullion coin sales have already set an annual record.

In fact, Krauth said he likes to think of silver as "gold on steroids."

As November comes to an end, silver prices continue to hold their luster even in this down week.
