Possibly a good idea - but unless someone is an advanced collector - avoid nusimatic collector coins - the spread - hype and liquidity is all against you. Instead - 5% - a max of 10% in small denominated silver coins - 1oz silver rounds might work - but first examine the rationale - is it to speculate - hedge against inflation - or hedge against an international panic due to a financial meltdown. Pay close attention to the spread - what the COMEX or London fix might be say $23.00 - and pay no more than 2-4% above that 'spot' price for actual coins or end up paying too much. Inflation is up dramatically this year - yet silver has gone down - so don't bank on it being a great inflation hedge. Over the last say 50 years - the total stock market index has been a FAR better income generator. Just since 2008 - the S&P 500 index is up several hundred per cent - but silver has been all over the map - seemingly stuck in the low to mid $20 range. Some folks use junk silver US pre-64 coins to use for barter - trade in case of a financial melt-down. Take physical possession. You can also buy silver by using IAU in retirement funds and not get hit with any extra taxes or penalties.

Unless you're a real collector, using an ETF seems a lot easier and more cost effective
