Silver Bullion, Silver Coins, and Silver Bars
Buy Silver Bullion Coins, Bars & Rounds
Silver is produced in the form of Silver coins, Silver bars and Silver rounds from mints and Precious Metal refiners around the world. Silver is one of the world’s most important commodities and an affordable Precious Metal investment option. For thousands of years, Silver bullion has served as a primary monetary metal, but today it is most commonly used as an industrial commodity. As an investment, Silver can play an important role in a modern diversified portfolio. Silver prices generally move independent of stocks and can provide a bright spot in your investment portfolio during an economic downturn.
Some Silver coins stay in families for generations, serving as both a bullion investment and collectible. Silver coins realize collectibility because of their design, scarcity and demand. Each year, new coins are minted in different variations which may never be produced again. APMEX only sells Silver coins minted by the most trusted mints in the world. These mints include the United States Mint, Royal Canadian Mint, Perth Mint, Austrian Mint and more.
Silver coins are sold at a premium above Silver spot prices because of their unique designs and limited availability. Coins are usually sold in brilliant uncirculated condition, having not been used as actual currency. Once a coin loses its luster, it begins to lose its status in terms of condition. The highest quality Silver coins are known as proof coins. Popular for their intricate designs, proof coins are struck more than once, which leads their brilliant shine.

Silver bullion coins come in a variety of sizes from 1/25 oz to 1 kilo, and every size in between. The most common purchases are 1 ounce Silver coins, often bought by investors and collectors alike. Some of our most popular Silver coins include:
New investors will find great comfort and emotional attachment from buying Silver coins. You can expect to pay more for a Silver coin than its Silver bullion counterparts, but because of the coin’s scarcity and collectibility, you’ll have a more fulfilling buying experience. There is almost an unlimited variety of Silver coins for your investing pleasure. You can view some of our more popular Silver coin products here.
Buying Silver bars is one of the most cost effective, safest and easiest ways to own physical Silver. Silver bars are the bullion of choice for many investors because they cost less over Silver spot price than Silver coins. Additionally, their uniform shape and size mean Silver bars are easy to store, count and transfer. APMEX sells Silver bars produced by Sunshine Mint, PAMP Suisse, RCM, Johnson Matthey and other respected Silver mints. Each Silver bar is stamped with its exact Silver weight, fineness, and a serial number for added security.
Silver Bullion Bars
Silver bullion bars come in a variety of sizes from 1 gram to 1 kilo or more, and every size in between. The most commonly traded Silver bars are 1 ounce, often purchased by avid investors. Some of our most popular Silver bars include:
No matter which form of Silver bar you choose to invest in, you can rest assured knowing you’ll own the most authentic form of currency in the history of the world.
Investors who are solely interested in Silver’s stable purchasing power can find security in buying Silver rounds. Silver rounds are circular discs often manufactured by private mints, though sometimes produced by government mints. They have no “face value” and are not recognized as legal tender. Silver rounds are not quite as diverse or collectible as Silver coins, but are an excellent choice for those who want to invest in Silver as an anti-inflation hedge.
Silver Bullion Rounds
Silver bullion rounds come in a number of different sizes from 1 gram to 16 oz, and every size in between. The most commonly traded Silver bullion rounds are 1 ounce or less. Some of our most popular Silver rounds include:
Though not as collectible as some Silver coins, Silver rounds are minted to an equally high standard with beautifully detailed designs and clean striking. Silver rounds typically sell for a lower premium relative to spot price and are an excellent addition to a mixed investment portfolio of Silver rounds, Silver coins and Silver bars.
