Our Most Recommended, Most Popular Bullion Products
Having reached this point in our investment guide, you are now in possession of a decent education on the topic of Precious Metals and may be considering your first investment. If you are currently thinking over what the best initial investment item is for you, we would like to show you some investment products to consider as you decide on your goals for the future and your current budget. Here we present our three most popular products, and explain which sort of investor each product might appeal to the most.
#1 Most Popular Product – 1 Ounce Silver Bars/Rounds
We list these two Silver bullion products together as they are essentially interchangeable—their weight, purity and prices are generally the same. Our one-ounce Silver bars and rounds are stackable Silver, so they can be stored efficiently, divide easy when compared to a larger, multi-ounce bar, and tend to command a low premium over the Silver spot price.
1 Ounce Silver Bars and Rounds are Great for:
- New precious metal investors, who can only make a modest expenditure and want to buy as close to spot price as possible.
- Seasoned “stackers” looking to accumulate and stack as much Precious Metal as possible, while still maintaining a liquid and divisible hoard.
#2 Most Popular Product – 10 Ounce Silver Bars
Ten-ounce Silver bars offer many of the same advantages as the popular one-ounce Silver bar, but at an even lower premium over spot. It is generally true of all Precious Metal investment products that the more ounces you buy at a time, the lower the premium-per-ounce.
10 Ounce Silver Bars are Great for:
- “Buy and hold” investors who want to buy Silver at the best possible price and plan to hold their metal for the long term without regard to divisibility.
- Investors who intend to accumulate a great deal of Silver and therefore must plan for efficient storage.
#3 Most Popular Product – 1 Ounce Gold Bars
Our third most popular product is our one-ounce Gold bars. Gold bars differ from our same-sized Silver bars in that they are significantly more expensive due to their gold content. However, they do offer an extremely efficient wealth-storage possibility and offer a lower premium over the spot price by percentage of the Precious Metal value.
1 Ounce Gold Bars are Great for:
- Investors who wish to make a considerable initial investment and want to buy Precious Metal as close to spot as possible.
- Investors who would prefer gold over silver, and aren’t too worried about divisibility.
Although the products we’ve listed above are our most popular products, some investors may find other products among our vast inventory that would better suit their taste or needs, and that is fine. It is not important to begin investing how we tell you to—it’s important to begin investing! For example, a new investor who really wants Gold but has a modest budget may be more interested in small Gold bars, which are available in amounts as small as a single gram, despite their higher premium over spot.
Take some time to browse the immense inventory at APMEX, and you will certainly find the perfect Precious Metal investment product to get you started on your journey.
