"All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects of the Constitution or Confederation; not from any want of honor or virtue, as much as downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation."
-John Adams, 1797

The Silver Squirrel is a blog dedicated to "Bullion, Bonds, and Banknotes" - the three classic forms of savings and currency.  In this age of fiat money where the value of cash is constantly changing (almost always to the downside), it is more important than ever to find ways to save and invest that are safe from inflation and sovereign default.  One medium with which the average person can do this is silver! 

Savers are very important to capital formation, which means they are very important to economic and social progress, contrary to what crazed Keynesians and socialists will tell you!  

The author is also a collector and numismatist, so many of the posts are for the hobbyist or fellow enthusiast who likes learning about new or different coins and notes.  

I hope if you have read this much you will consider leaving some comments or "following" the blog!
