Silver Stackers | Who is Stacking Silver and Why?

Adding bullion allocations to your investment portfolio is a proven method to bolster and protect your wealth over the long term.

Given that all government fiat currencies these days are entirely divorced from precious metal anchors or gold and silver backings, there is a consistent bid by investors for physical precious metal bullion products — especially silver bullion.

“Silver Stacking” is what silver investors and silver bullion product collectors call the act of stockpiling silver.

They often reference themselves as “Silver Stackers.”

Here we define these two expressions.

Silver Stackers - (n) investors who buy and save physical silver bullion for the long term.

Silver Stacking - (v) the act of buying, taking direct possession of silver bullion coins, rounds, and bars; saving them for the long term.

Investors all around the world often buy silver bullion products and call themselves “Silver Stackers” as they consistently add more physical precious metals to their investment portfolios. Regularly too these silver stackers participate in online social media websites and within silver communities.

It is common to find silver stacking investors showing off videos and photos of their progress saving silver bullion for the long term. There are a couple of ways to become a “Silver Stacker” yourself. We even created a free 21st Century Bullion Guide to help silver stackers buy and sell silver bullion safely.

Silver bullion buyers often see their silver bullion product holdings as long-term investment vehicles and savings. The silver price per ounce is currently rather affordable, especially when compared to the current gold price, palladium price, and silver price.

Buying silver bullion as an investment or speculation has existed for decades ever since silver got withdrawn from our circulating coinage. Those same 90% silver coins are still bought and sold by silver stackers as a way to save silver bullion in Constitutional and legal tender forms. They are bought and sold based on their silver bullion value in fiat currencies such as the fully fiat US dollar or others (e.g., euros, yen, pounds, yuan, etc.).

Many silver stackers stack silver bullion treating it as a long term savings deposit that they fully own outright with limited counter-party risk (outside of outright theft).

Precious metals are an investment vehicle across the world, especially in emerging markets such as India and China (the most significant mass silver and gold bullion buyers respectively on a yearly net import basis).

Current silver bullion products and silver investment opportunities are abundant because limited silver bullion supplies are currently available.

Some stack silver because it is a proven store of wealth while other silver stackers use it as a system to save capital for the long haul. Some stackers like the notoriety of buying silver bullion in larger quantities. Most would argue they stack silver as a hedge against economic downturns or emergencies.
