Buying Silver Rounds Online

Silver bullion rounds are a very popular way to purchase silver. They have much lower premiums than silver bullion coins of the same weight. You get more silver for your investment dollar by buying silver rounds vs. silver coins.

Silver Coins vs. Silver Rounds

Government-made silver bullion coins display a denomination, and their weight and purity. The denomination makes them legal tender. Being legal tender gives them the guarantee of the "full faith and credit' of the government. Silver rounds are made by private refineries and mints and have no face value. They only display their purity and weight.

The Difference Between Silver Bars and Silver Rounds

While silver rounds cost about the same as generic silver bars, they are easier to store. .999 fine silver rounds are close in size to American Silver Eagles. This lets them fit in the same size 20-coin mint tubes for secure storage -- a plus for silver rounds versus silver bars. Stacking 1 troy oz silver bars can be awkward, and larger silver bars are, of course, not divisible.

Types of Silver Rounds

Silver rounds offer untold thousands of different designs. Makers of silver rounds can create any design they want, as long as they don't violate trademark or copyright law. Legal tender collectible coins, in contrast, can only bear government-approved designs.

Most modern silver round designs fall into one of these categories:

  • Replicas of classic coin designs;
  • Religious and holiday designs; and
  • military/historical designs.
