How to Buy Silver Online
Why Buy Silver Bullion?
Silver has been used as money as well as a long term store of value for thousands of years. It represents a key commodity and a very affordable precious metal investment option for investors and collectors. Silver is the most popular precious metal to invest in, as the cost per ounce is dramatically lower than other metals. No matter how much you have to invest, you will always be able to purchase more ounces of silver than other precious metals. Silver is a traditional safe haven investment and a perfect way to diversify your investment portfolio. Silver can be sold in silver coins, bars and rounds at mints and refineries across the globe, with silver prices typically moving independently of stocks and financial markets. Investing in physical silver and gold are the only assets that are completely free of counter-party risk and have historically held their purchasing power.
Silver Bullion Coins, Bars and Rounds
Silver bullion bars are usually the best value for silver on a price per ounce basis. This allows you to accumulate many more ounces of silver for your investment dollars. Silver bars are available as small as 1 gram to as large as 1000+ troy ounces for a COMEX good delivery bar. Silver bars are almost exclusively produced by private mints, although both the Royal Canadian Mint and the Perth Mint produce a limited selection. One of the reasons that silver bars cost less per ounce than coins or rounds is due to the lower fabrication costs of producing a bar. Bars typically do not feature the design work or the fine craftsmanship of most silver coins or rounds. In addition, silver bars are available in much larger sizes than most coins or rounds, which helps lower the cost per ounce. One possible advantage of silver bars is that many of them carry serial numbers, which can be useful if the bars are being held in a trust or in allocated, segregated storage.

Modern silver bullion coins are produced by government mints, carry a face value and can be used as legal tender. Official silver bullion coins are more expensive per ounce than silver bars or rounds, however they offer additional security and the peace of mind of having been produced by a government mint. Coins carry additional fabrication costs above that of silver bars, which is one factor as to why they cost more. You may wish to start by purchasing coins due to the added confidence of buying a government minted item and then diversify your holdings into privately minted bars and rounds.
Silver rounds are privately minted and by and large could be considered to be very similar to silver bars when looked at as a bullion item. The big difference between bars and rounds are that rounds feature original and thought provoking messages. Private mints have a much greater margin in terms of the subject matter of their rounds and many are very creative with beautiful and interesting designs.
