It is heresy even to suggest it, but the answer ultimately depends upon why you bought it.
If you purchased silver as a hedge against inflation, then you are sorely disappointed: Despite a 40-year high in inflation, silver spot is currently priced at a paltry $23.20/oz.
Similarly, if you purchased silver for investment purposes, counting on near prices still less than half of their peak in the 2007-2011 crisis, you have been rangebound for years, making silver one of the worst annual yield performers you could choose.
On the other hand, if you purchased silver as an insurance-based commodity for the purchase or barter for goods and services, then the jury is still out. Like carrying a life insurance policy, you have bet against yourself, and may have been buying silver for 20+ years with no benefit to show for it (or paying 30% premiums if buying it today). The decades go by, and my worthless fiat currency still buys bread at the store. But if it couldn’t, would people who have bread still give it to me for metal?
In Zimbabwe, they did, but that may be because hyperinflation was specific to their country (ie., the people with food could sell the gold and silver and replenish their supplies in other countries.
But if the hyperinflation was global, and cheap food wasn’t available anywhere, would you still be able to get bread for metal?
I know I wouldn’t sell you mine at any price: I can’t eat metal.
Basically, I’m starting to reconsider whether silver is a prudent prepay all. Perhaps money is better spent on beans, bullets, and bugout land.
