I’m not going to tell you yea or nay about whether you should buy silver.  You need to read and read some more.  Ask questions.  Every investment has risk.  But I will tell you about a dream I had last night, a pretty intriguing one.

I wouldn’t have even remembered this dream except I happened to scan some titles of articles in a newsletter this morning and noticed one about gold and silver.  Then, ping.  The dream came back.

Note that I do not own silver, nor to I check on its prices – ever.

I was holding a 1964 Kennedy half dollar and held it up in front of my face, looking at it.  I’d seen these silver coins a lot when I was younger so was quite familiar with them.  It was a little tarnished looking around the rim.

I was in a pawn shop, and handed it to a guy behind the counter and asked him how much he’d give me for it.

He took a look at it and said, “twenty seven dollars.”

“How much is silver worth now?” I asked.

“Sixty dollars an ounce,” he said.  “Do you want to sell it or not.”

I thought about it.  Do I sell the coin and hold on to the cash, or keep the coin?  I decided to sell it for $27 and immediately felt disappointed.

—end of dream—

So as soon as I remembered the dream this morning, I hopped online.  I’m curious what the price of silver is today.  The first article I click open is someone predicting that silver will go to $60 per ounce within a few months.  That seems strange, because that’s the price it was in my dream.

What is the price of silver is today (April 3, 2013)?  $27-28 per ounce.

Next, I’m curious what the weight of a Kennedy half dollar is.  Turns out it is 12.5 grams (0.44 ounces).  I was not aware of this or had forgotten.  At $60 per ounce, if sold purely for its 90% silver content that would be worth about $24 (a pure silver coin that same weight would be worth $26-27 dollars).

Coincidences?  I never think about silver.  Why did I dream this?

Now I’m a little perplexed.  Did my dream mean something?  Should I go out and buy a bunch of silver?  Hmmm.  Undecided.  What would you do?
