Venezuelan Silver!

It has been quite a hectic day today, atm is 11:00 p.m and I finally managed to get home.

Tomorrow morning we're leaving for a 10 days long holiday trip so I had to do lots of shit that I left for the last moment 😁🤣

At least I had a very nice surprise waiting for me, the second batch of silver I ordered this month. As you can see in the photos below this is a bit chunkier then the one I received two days ago!

8 precious silver coins 🥰

I am too tired to share them all today, and also lighting conditions don't help to take good photos, so instead I will only show you the three coins I was most excited for!

3 silver beauties from Venezuela!

Starting from left, we have:

  • 2 bolivars from 1960, that's 10 g of 0.835 silver
  • 2 bolivars minted in 1924, again 10 g of 0.835 silver
  • 1 Bolivar of 1965, 5 g of 0.835 silver

Don't know about you, but imo it's really cool to have some "real money" of Venezuelan origin, a country that is famous for having one of the shittiest currencies 🤣

According to google, the average monthly salary in Venezuela is 25$, while the silver in just these three coins is worth about half that.

Amazing...And depressing!

Venezuela must be a sad place to be right now.

25$ is totally poor. I discovered some professors earn a bit above this.

How bad can the government be?

Bolivar currency is named after Simón Bolívar a decorated military leader, and that time Venezuela was Caracas. Now Venezuela's official name is Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela renamed in 1999.

Bolivia is also named after him and its currency is known as Boliviano.

Funny thing is that Albert Désiré Barre who engraved this coin was a Frenchman. 😆

These coins are an ironic testament and indictment to how the Venezuelan economy has been totally mal-managed for all these years. Sitting on a huge reserve of oil doesn't benefit the average Venezuelan one iota with the same clowns running it.
After years of sanctions, Biden's begging Maduro to sell to the USA Venezuela's oil.
Remember, it takes oil to produce silver from out of the ground.

Well, at least the silver will have a base value compared to the depreciating fiat version in Venezuela.

There are actually exciting. They look quite cheap though for their value

If we think about it is very interesting today's currency has no silver at all. Only cheap metals with some numbers.

A very oil-rich country like Venezuela turns out as one with the most useless currency :D

Very nice coins!

$25/month? And that's a typical Venezuelan salary. I can imagine it much worse for those who are not, plenty of fiat Bolivares but minuscule buying power.
