There are a number of considerations to keep in mind when investing in silver bullion.
When investing in silver bullion coins, including
silver rounds, weight, purity, and the question of circulation are important
consideration. Coins that have been circulated lose their original luster and are
less valuable relative to uncirculated silver rounds. Some of the most common
silver bullion coins include the U.S. Mint's Silver Eagle Coin, and the Royal Canadian
Mint's Silver Maple Leaf Coins. Among privately minted silver bullion coins, the
most commonly sold at Gainesville Coins is the Silver Buffalo coin.
Silver Bullion bars are produced by a number of mints. Among the most well know
are the silver bullion bars produced by Engelhard and Johnson Mathey. Investing
in silver bullion bars is generally
preferred by individuals seeking to buy more than 10 oz at a time.
While Engelhard and Johnson Mathey are the most well known silver bullion bar producers,
otther respected brands make
silver bars. Academy Bars have gained popularity, because they are produced
using a precision cutting process and feature a unique interlocking design that
makes them stack easily. Meanwhile, the Sunshine Mint produces bars of such high
quality that they are used as blanks for the production of the U.S. Mint's Silver Eagle coins.
Silver bullion generally comes in sizes between 1 oz and 10 oz for coins and 1 oz
and 100 oz for bars. They are generally .999 pure.
