Why invest in 500 gram Silver bars?
Many investors add 500 gram Silver bars to their investment portfolios because they view Silver bars as a safe-haven asset.

Why is the price of Silver bullion bars so much lower than the price of Gold bullion bars?
Gold and Silver prices are primarily affected by perception, supply and demand and to some degree rarity, though rarity falls into the category of perception because both Precious Metals are rare with a finite supply found on earth. Whether you buy Silver bars or buy Gold bars, you will notice that the current Silver spot price is many times less than the Gold price. Silver is easier to mine than Gold, which usually requires a purification process, and this difference in ease of mining can account for some of the price differential between the two Precious Metals. Just like Gold and Silver bullion demand today, Gold has historically been perceived as the more valuable of the two Precious Metals going as far back as 6,000 years when Gold was the chosen metal to decorate artifacts and use for trade.
