What to Consider When You’re Ready to Buy Silver in Nampa


Investors buy silver as an inflation hedge, an investment, or survival.

Before deciding to buy silver as an investment, you must carefully choose a reputable dealer to avoid overpaying and the potentially fraudulent activities of high-pressure telemarketers and promoters posing as reputable dealers.

Physical silver is a wise investment as a portfolio diversifier, but as with many diversified assets, investors should buy silver in measured quantities to avoid swinging their entire portfolios.

These are a few recommendations for Nampa investors to consider before deciding to buy silver bars, silver coins, or silver rounds:

  • Buy silver at spot price or as near spot price as possible
  • Invest only in silver bullion products
  • Work with a reputable dealer like us
  • Determine the type of silver to buy

Should Nampa Investors Choose Silver Bullion Coins or Bars?


The answer to whether investors should choose silver bullion coins or bars is generally based on the highest objectives of the buyer.

Silver bullion bars have the best value when buying because of their lower premium over the spot price, convenient storage, and an ideal choice for self-directed IRAs. Lower capitalized investors seeking potential capital growth prefer silver coins because they are easy to liquidate, legal tender, and provide a better yield than bullion bars.

There is no definitive answer to which is the better choice, so many investors choose a mix of both for diversifying their portfolios.

These are a few of our well-known silver bullion bars, silver coins, and silver rounds for Nampa investors:

  • 1-oz. U.S. Mint Silver Eagle coins
