Hello, I understand that the concensus here is that junk US silver coins are the preferred hedge agains severe US dollar devaluation, but I'd be interested to know how many here consider foreign silver coins (other than Canadian) as an alternative or actually a part of their buying strategy. I've collected silver coins in the past and always liked foreign silver coins due to the fact that they can be bought at a lower premium than the US equivalent, even when the silver content was the same. Another interesting point is that silver coins from some (if not most) Latin American countries (including Mexico) actually show the weight and actual silver content, which is not the case with US or Canadian coins (with the exception of bullion coins, of course). The same train of thought led me in the past to invest (at almost the same rate of American Eagles and Canadian Maple Leaves) in Mexican 1oz. silver "Libertad" coins when looking to invest in bullion. They are also 1 full ounce of .999 silver, but yet I've always been able to buy them at almost melt value regardless of condition. As far as I know they have never had much in the way of numismatic value, unlike the US Eagles. Another example are the Cuban silver pesos and the Silver "Balboas" from Panama. Like the US "Morgan" and "Peace" dollars they both weigh 26.73 and contain .900 silver, however unlike the US coins they are clearly marked as to both weight and content. In fairness, the Cuban coins have always sold at a considerable margin over the cost of "Morgans", but I've found that the premium has all but disappeared with the higher cost of silver. The "Balboas" have always traded at a discount (always near melt value). Just thought I'd ask if anyone would like to share their point of view on the matter. Thanks.
