Silver prices generally move independent of stocks and can provide a bright spot in your investment portfolio during an economic downturn.
Silver Bullion Coins
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 bullion coins are known as proof coins. Popular for their intricate designs, proof coins are struck more than once, which leads to their brilliant shine.

Where can I buy Silver Bullion at spot?
While it is next to impossible to buy Silver at spot, reputable retailers such as APMEX make it easy to get the best price available at a competitive premium over spot. The term spot refers to the current market price for a 1 oz unit of Gold, a rate that continually fluctuates during the day. Investors want to pay as close to the current spot price as possible with small premiums giving the best chance at a good margin when selling later. There are, however, other factors that make a higher premium worth paying, such as a history of appreciation, availability, or reputation of quality from the mint of origin. While all Precious Metals including Gold are sold at a premium, this small additional cost is what pays for expenses such as mining, refining, production, and collectible market value.
How do I know I am getting the best Silver bullion?

Every single product sold is guaranteed to match the quality and origin outlined on the website. If you have bought Silver bullion in the past, and are skeptical about the fineness or authenticity, there are a few ways to evaluate your Precious Metals at home. The magnet test is the most common. Silver does not bear any magnetic properties, but imitation coins or bars that have iron or steel content will be drawn to a magnet, immediately signaling that your bullion is not pure. An ice test will also give you a quick indication because Silver is an extremely powerful conductor of heat. Place a small piece of ice on top of your Silver bullion. If it begins to melt immediately, it is a sign that you have a high-quality product.
