How to Store Silver at Home 
Now that you’ve decided to buy silver, it's time to think about properly storing and protecting it. It is often said that silver bullion has no counter-party risk, and in a monetary sense, this is indeed true.   Although silver bullion requires no counter-party to sustain its value, there is and always remains the very real threat of theft.

Silver seen climbing faster than gold as Yellen wakens bulls
Investors may be better off with silver rather than gold. The Federal Reserve's pledge to stick to its dovish outlook on U.S. monetary policy has fueled a rally in precious metals and silver usually beats its more valuable peer in a rising market. After the Fed raised interest rates by a quarter percentage point Wednesday, Chair Janet Yellen said the central bank was willing to tolerate inflation temporarily overshooting its 2 percent goal and intended to keep its policy accommodative for "some
