Silver Bullion Coins
Some coins remain in families for generations, serving as both a bullion investment and collectible. Silver coins have a collectibility factor due to their design, scarcity and demand. Each year, new coins are minted in different variations, some never to be produced again, with various levels of mintages available upon release.
A Silver coin comes in various sizes, from 1/25 troy ounce to 1 kilo, and every size in between. There are mints and refineries all over the world that create the best unique and valuable Silver coins. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced collector, you will find a coin that fits your interests. The most commonly purchased are the 1 oz coins, often bought by investors and collectors alike.
Coin prices will vary and fluctuate with the Live Spot Price of Silver. Spot prices update in real-time when there is a change in the world market price. APMEX only sells coins minted by the most trusted mints around the globe, including the U.S. Mint, Perth Mint, The Royal Mint and many more. Here are some of our most popular coins for sale with APMEX:
American Silver Eagle: There is no coin as widely purchased as the American Silver Eagle. First introduced in 1986 by the U.S. Mint, it is the official Silver bullion coin of America. The famous coin features the well-known Walking Liberty Design on its obverse, created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman. The reverse displayed an eagle grasping an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left.
The reverse of the Eagle remained untouched until 2021 when the U.S. Mint revealed a new reverse design. The new reverse design featured a flying Eagle carrying an olive branch in both its talons to celebrate 35 years of American Eagles.
Australian Silver Lunar Series: Originally launched in 1999, the first Australian Lunar series released 12 bold Chinese Lunar calendar animal designs. Inspired by the traditions of the ancient Chinese records, each animal has a profound impact on those born during its year.
As the Lunar series gained in popularity, the Perth Mint continued variations of the series to give collectors options with their Silver Lunar coins. The Lunar Series coins are available in multiple sizes for purchase, including 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 1 oz, 2 oz, 10 oz and 1 kilo.
British Silver Britannia: Introduced in 1998, the Silver Britannia is the nation’s official bullion coin. This coin features the image of Britannia, a national symbol of Britain, who watches over the island in defense of its shores against aggressors.
The Britannias produced from 1998-2012 contained a .958 fine Silver content, differing from the British sterling standard, until 2013 when the first Britannia with a .999 fineness was released. The Britannias are available in various sizes, such as 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 1 oz, 5 oz and 20 oz.
Canadian Silver Maple Leaf: The official Silver bullion of Canada since its introduction in 1988, it was one of the first – and remains one of the few – to use .9999 fineness. Maple Leaf coins are among the most secure bullion coins in the world today.
The Royal Canadian Mint offers a wide variety in their Maple Leaf selection by incorporating new finishes and mint marks. There have even been multiple special editions of Maples produced over the years, which add higher collectibility to this unique coin.
Chinese Silver Panda: The oldest Silver coin issue today, the Chinese Panda was first introduced in 1989. The obverse displays an image of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests in the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, with the reverse displaying a panda.
The panda on the reverse of the coin receiving an update every year combined with the .999 fineness make this a great coin for collectors and investors alike. In 2016, the People’s Republic of China began minting Pandas in metric systems sizes to suit the international appeal of coins better.
Mexican Silver Libertad: From its original release in 1981 until 1991, the Mexican Mint only offered the Silver Libertad in 1 oz. In 1992, the Mexican Mint decided to expand the series to include 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz and 1/20 oz coins. Then, again in 1996, the Mexican Mint expanded to include 2 oz and 5 oz and, again, in 2008 to introduce the 1-kilo coin.
Silver Bullion Coin Mints
Mint coins are valued by investors and collectors alike because federal governments and central banks back the Silver content and quality. This guaranteed backing provides reassurance with every coin you purchase. The following mints are the most prolific issuers of coins on the bullion market today:
Silver Bullion Bars
Buying bars is one of the most cost-effective and easiest ways to own physical Silver. Bars are the bullion of choice for many investors because they cost less over Silver spot price than coins. Additionally, their uniform shape and size mean bars are easy to store, count and transfer. Each bar is stamped with its exact weight, fineness and a serial number for added security.
Silver bars come in various sizes, from 1 oz to 1 kilo, and every size in between. The most commonly traded bars are 1 oz, often purchased by avid investors. No matter which forms of Silver you choose to buy, you can rest assured knowing you will own the best quality on the market today.
Silver bars come with a variety of different finishes. APMEX customers can easily search for Silver bars by weight, brand or theme. You can purchase bars from APMEX produced by the finest mints and refineries of Precious Metals in the world, including:
Silver Bullion Rounds
Rounds are circular discs with no “face value,” meaning they are not considered legal tender with a denomination but still hold the same stable purchasing power as Gold. Rounds typically come in various sizes, from 1 gram to 10 troy ounces, with the most traded rounds being 1 oz or less.
Silver rounds are not quite as diverse or collectible as Silver coins but can be an excellent choice for investing as an anti-inflation hedge. Rounds are minted due to an equally high standard of beautifully detailed designs and clean striking. Rounds tend to sell for a lower premium relative to spot price and are an excellent addition to a mixed Precious Metals investment portfolio.
Silver rounds come from a variety of mints but primarily come from private mints around the world. APMEX carries a diverse selection of rounds, including fractional rounds, popular 1 oz rounds and larger format rounds.
