Silver grows much slower and would provide protection from inflation.
People buying gold right now though once the economy improves will suffer losses big losses.
Really there is no 100% safe investment as every markets has up swings and down swings.
Physical assets are alwayse best if you can swing them though.
When land is cheap buy it, even if land is on a roller-coaster it's still something that will alwayse swing back up eventually.
All you can do really is be patient and diversify enough, and be willing to hold some losses while letting go of others.
