Why Buy Silver?
Silver is considered one of the most important natural resources globally, after water and oil. The grey Precious Metal is used to manufacture millions of electronic devices every year, including the electronic components of appliances and automobiles. It is sought after by the medical industry because of its natural antibacterial properties, and the fashion industry for its timeless beauty. Well over 50% of silver sold each year is put to industrial use.
Silver was the first metal used as currency more than 4,000 years ago when silver ingots were used in trading and is still commonly used for many industrial purposes. Silver’s many uses include making mirrors, batteries and electronics, in addition to increasing the effectiveness of pharmaceuticals.
Why Buy Fractional Silver?
Buying fractional silver refers to purchasing silver
in smaller denominations, such as fractional coins or bars, rather than acquiring total ounces or larger quantities. There are several benefits to buying fractional silver:
- Affordability and Flexibility: Fractional silver allows investors to acquire smaller amounts of silver at a lower cost compared to purchasing full ounces. This affordability factor makes it more accessible to a broader range of investors, including those with limited budgets or those who prefer diversifying their investments across various assets.
- Liquidity: Fractional silver offers increased liquidity. When you own smaller denominations, you can sell only a portion of your silver holdings when needed without selling an entire ounce. This flexibility can be advantageous if you require quick access to cash or want to take advantage of silver price fluctuations.
- Portability and Divisibility: Fractional silver is easier to transport and store than larger quantities. Smaller units are more compact, allowing for discreet storage or safekeeping. Moreover, fractional silver's divisibility provides added convenience. You can divide and use smaller portions for various purposes while keeping the remaining holdings intact.
- Numismatic Value: Some fractional silver coins, especially those with historical significance or limited mintages, may carry a numismatic premium in addition to their intrinsic metal value. This added collector's value could increase the overall worth of the fractional silver coins over time, making them not only an investment in silver but also in numismatic rarity.
- Portfolio Diversification: Silver is often seen as a hedge against inflation and a diversification tool within investment portfolios.
By buying fractional silver, you can efficiently allocate a portion of your investment capital to this precious metal, diversifying your portfolio and potentially reducing risk.
It's important to note that while fractional silver offers these benefits, it also comes with specific considerations. Transaction costs, premiums, and the potential for storage fees should be considered when purchasing fractional silver. Additionally, the availability of fractional silver products may vary depending on the market and the specific coins or bars you're interested in acquiring.
