Buy Silver


Silver, with it’s partner gold is one of the most popular investment opportunities for precious metal investors. There are many different types of silver that are available for you to choose from, which is what makes silver an amazing opportunity. Silver is a great investment opportunity because it is affordable compared to gold, platinum and palladium (the other popular investment metals). You can get more metal for the money with silver.

There are three different primary types of silver bullion: bars, rounds, and coins. A bar and round, for the most part, are the same thing only the shape is different. Bars and rounds are minted and produced by private companies, coins, on the other hand, most often end up in private collections minted by the national mint of a particular country.

Coins can cost more than rounds and bars of the same weight because they have a collectible value on top of the value of the silver contained in the coin. There is a set scarcity and production run with coins, whereas bars and rounds are produced in virtually limitless quantities.

Bars and rounds are the most common form of silver for investments. Bars come in many different weights and sizes, with the standard sizes being 1 oz., 5 oz., 10 oz., 1 kilo, and 100 oz. Rounds are just like bars, with the primary difference being that they tend to be available mainly in 1 oz. sizes you can find some great rounds in 2 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz, kilo and other odd weights.

Coins are the most sought after piece of silver, shaped like a round with the difference being that coins are minted and distributed by the national mint of a particular country. Just as the American Eagle is manufactured by the US Mint, the Canadian Maple Leaf is produced by Canada, the Chinese Silver Panda, etc…

Coins are considered (and are) naturally more rare than rounds and bars and have added value because they are more scarce, whereas bars and rounds are simply pure bullion produced in mass based on however much silver the private mint can get their hands on.

It is recommended to order a combination of bars, rounds, and coins, this is a great strategy. This will ensure that you are diversifying your portfolio and making it that much easier to buy and sell as you build your precious metal portfolio.
