“Black birds tend to like shiny things.” ~ The Bloody Raven
@dwingsworld has not been active on Hive/Steem for over a year since the long price slide. It does not mean that he had stopped silver Stacking nor we stopped staying in touch regarding the subject of Pirate and non-Pirate Treasures.
Though his Instagram home page doesn't show it, he's still the Pirate treasure hunter at heart. Private and Public Treasure hunting ventures are always an interesting read to us. I tend keep an un-patched eye out on treasure hunting news and share with 'Captain D' the latest finds over Discord.
A simple common silver US Dime? No, a modern-day treasure, writ small!
I’m always excited to get a US silver Dime since my Mom would always say that shopping is better over the border and now with explicit talk of a Great Reset, we will see if that opportunity arises. Otherwise, I may just hand my silver US dime roll to my remotely related US Cousins just to say, “I told you so!”
Since starting my blog I've never explained my reasons for accumulating silver dimes, or 10 cents as we Canadians refer to them as, so I now have this opportunity to explain my reasons why.
So, I imagine the scenario of a semi orderly, if orderly being optimistic, the ‘Great Reset’ takes place. Silver dimes or Constitutional silver can assume a trusted role as a transition currency between the hyperinflationary crisis to the time the majority begins to trust the new system. If we trust the new system at all.
Recognizable as money, usually the older folks who may vaguely recall silver used to be regular business currency prior to the 70’s. And I am often reminded that every time I go to my local Canadapost office are always a few of those overpriced proof Silver Royal Canadian Mint coins for sale along with the latest postage stamps.
The Gift Silver Coin Close up
We instantly recognize the image Roosevelt and the liberty Torch on the US Dime just as much as the lines of the Bluenose Schooner on the Canadian Ten cents have been long in use up to today. Unless the person I may be negotiating with accepts Crypto, and even now I haven’t found more than two local people who actually has any Crypto wallet, he would just need to look up Coinflation or Numista or even Silvergoldbull.ca to check the latest value of silver currency on his or her smart phone before committing to a transaction.
The cost of acquiring circulated silver dimes are often cheaper than 1/10 Troy Oz. fractional bullion rounds as represented in higher premiums on a per oz. basis.
The bulk of my ‘Constitutional’ silver coinage are Canadian. I've acquired my silver 10 Cents stack in several planned bulk purchases over the last few years and then adding at least 10 more each time I go to my Local Coin store if stock is available.
And because of their small denomination they can be used in small anonymous transactions and not sweat overpaying a fraction of a 2.3g silver 10 Cents rather than overpaying with a 31g silver Maple Leaf.
As part of your Great Reset Plan consider keeping on hand a roll or two of old silver coins be it; US Dimes, Canadian 10 Cents, English 3 and 6 pence or what denomination of your country as demonetized silver coinage because they will provide you with an extra alternative payment option under your belt. (Arrrh! Tis Not Financial advice.)
I case you are not familiar with the Canadian version of the ‘Dime’ and for the sake in keeping with the #piratesunday theme.
Even if I didn’t resort to using my US Dimes and Canadian 10 Cents as emergency transitional currency, I’d still be happy to have them as a tangible form of savings next to my core Stack.
What’s Core Stack? That is precious metals that serve a different function I will explain in another blog.
For now, a thank you to my Pirate bro @dwingsworld for a thoughtful and unexpected little gift for this Christmas.
And I hope Captain @dwingsworld would one day rejoin our Stacker Community here on Hive.
