Silver statues are especially touching gifts because they are sure to be displayed in their recipient’s personal space and will be a constant reminder of the one who presented it.

Silver Mexican Libertads are available in sizes from small fractionals for those with a limited budget to impressive 5 ounce pieces for those who want to make a splash. Of course, many Mexican Silver Libertads are also IRA eligible. If you were to guide your graduate in starting a Precious Metals IRA, you would be setting them on the path to later financial security. This makes the gift of a Mexican Silver Libertad not just a gift of Precious Metals, but a gift of wisdom, too.
