Silver - The Most Popular Form of Investment
Despite fluctuating currency rates, the precious metal is and remains a form of investment that also retains or even increases its value during economic crises. In contrast to paper money, bank accounts and securities, it represents a real asset. This is especially the case for metal held in the private sector. The highest price to date for the silver exchange rate was $ 49.45 in January 1980. The price of silver then fell until 2003 and rose again until 2011 to $48.47. Since then, the rate has been showing a general downward movement. Just the right time to make a cost-effective investment and profit from the next upward trend.
As forms of investment, silver bars
in particular are available in different sizes, as are investment coins. Silver coins
have the advantage that in the case of selling silver, an increase in value above the pure silver value can also be achieved. This is due to the collectors’ value of some rare coins or series that are reissued each year.
You can buy silver from us in these valuable forms, e.g. the American Eagle
, a classic investment coin from the USA. The Vienna Philharmonic
and the Australian Kookaburra
are also very popular, as is the Australian Lunar Series
, which is reworked every year to show a very attractive form motif from the Chinese lunar calendar. While Sterling Silver 925 has a fine content of 925 per thousand, our investment coins usually have a silver content of 99.99% and in many cases are also legal tender in the respective country of issue.
Another very interesting way to buy silver is the acquisition of bars. Our silver bars are products of renowned manufacturers such as Heraeus or Umicore. You can buy silver bars in denominations of 1 oz
(31.1 grams), 100 grams
, 250 grams
, 500 grams
, 1 kilograms
, 5 kilograms
and 15 kilograms
. So the right size is available to suit every investment need! Silver bars up to a weight of 50 grams are usually minted, 100 grams are moulded. The new combibars, from which smaller pieces of one gram can be separated, are also both fascinating and practical. Silver bars are usually produced with a high fine content of 99.99%.
Whether as an investment or gift
- silver coins and silver bars are always a good buy!
