Should San Diego Investors Choose Silver Bullion Coins or Bars?


There are many factors to consider with choosing silver bullion as an investment.

Dealers are frequently asked by novices and long-term investors whether to choose silver bullion coins or bars. The answer depends significantly on the silver investing objectives.

While some San Diego investors prefer legal tender assets such as silver bullion coins, large investors often seek the best value with silver bars at lower premiums over the spot price. We recommend buyers choose based on their investment goals or buying a mix of coins and bars to diversify their portfolios and establish financial security.

These are a few differences between silver bars and coins:

Silver coins:

  • Command higher premiums over the spot price
  • Are a good investment choice for potential capital growth
  • Are easy to liquidate
  • Are the most popular form in the precious metals market

Silver bars:

  • Have the advantage of lower premiums over spot price
  • Are easy to store
  • Are a relatively inexpensive way to start investing
  • Are more difficult to liquidate than coins
