I remember as a kid buying candy bars for a nickel. When they raised the price to a dime, I said I would never buy a candy bar again. Of course that promise to myself didn’t last long, but today, a candy bar costs 20 times as much as it did in 1964 when a silver dime could buy you two of them. To put things into perspective, the dollar of today could buy you 20 candy bars in 1964. What can a dime buy you today?
Well, a 1964 Roosevelt dime today can buy you $2.67 or 2 1/2 bars of candy, which sure is a lot more than what the FDR dime of today can buy you. In fact, the FDR dime of today’s metal value today is less than a 1982 penny, the last year they made pennies with 95% copper.
To put things into even further perspective, a $1,000 worth of Roosevelt Dimes or Washington Quarters (aka 90% silver bags) in 1964 is worth today $26,359 at the current spot price of $36.89.
This shows you the effect of inflation has had on “real” money over the years.
The 90% silver bags we sell here at Buy Gold and Silver Safely will maintain their purchasing power over time. The U.S. currency, whether it be the coins they mark with a face value of a dime or a quarter, will not. The paper dollars you hold in your CD’s, and various bank accounts will not hold their purchasing power either. A $1 bill could buy you 20 candy bars in 1964. Today it will buy you one.
This is what our government has done to our money.
