When the world economy suffered, people were all caught with the financial trap. Their dollar accounts have little to no value at all. So most have depleted their savings, used them all up in order for their family to survive. Some investments also yielded small returns and was also considered useless.
Because of this, some people thought of buying better investments that remains strong despite the economy’s global struggle. Some wanted to buy gold bullion and some opted to buy silver bullion because time and time again buying gold and silver bullions is much stable compared to dollar accounts, stocks, bonds and others.
