Silver also has close ties to the industrial world, giving it greater ties to the economy than gold. But for those who are looking to start a silver collection of their own, there are a number of factors that come in to play. Below, we have assembled an all-encompassing guide of articles and resources from around the web to educate you on every facet of the physical silver industry [for more silver news subscribe to our free newsletter].
