Buy Silver Coins, Silver Bars and Silver Bullion
The first distinction usually made for a silver coin is whether or not it is graded. Graded silver coins
carry numismatic value, generally for their condition and/or rarity, and therefore typically sell at a
significant premium to spot. The two most well-known grading companies are PCGS and NGC. Gainesville
Coins carries both graded and ungraded U.S. Mint
American Silver Eagle Coins.
Most silver coins manufactured today are .999 pure and 1 troy oz. Over recent years there has been
an increase in the number of mints producing larger sized coins, such as: the Chinese Mint's 2011
5oz. Chinese Silver Panda and the Royal
Australian Mint's 2011 1 Kilo Australian Silver Kookaburra.
Typically the premium paid over spot for a silver coin declines as the weight increases. Silver
bullion includes non-graded silver coins.
Many national mints produce silver coins for both the numismatic market and the investment market.
A number of these coins are eligible for inclusion in a precious metals IRA, including the American
Silver Eagle, the Canadian Silver Maple
Leaf, the Australian Silver Kookaburra, and the Austrian
Silver Bullion Bars
Silver bars are generally privately minted and are typically of .999 purity. The most common weights for silver bars is 1 troy oz., 10 troy oz.,
and 100 troy oz., bars. Like silver coins, the price over spot paid for a silver bar decreases as the weight purchased increases.
Silver bullion bars that are .999 pure and accredited by
COMEX/NYMEX are eligible for inclusion in a metal's IRA.
