Why Buy Silver Rounds?

People have been investing in metals as far back as the fourth century B.C., and investing and collecting precious metals remains popular today--particularly in the face of economic instability.

Silver rounds are an easy and transportable way to ensure you truly own your wealth. Their value is recognized the world over and they can be used as tools for barter. Additionally, silver is an excellent hedge against inflation. There really is no investment quite like it.

What is the difference between silver rounds and sovereign silver bullion?

Silver rounds are normally produced by private mints. Sovereign silver bullion or coins are produced by governmental mints, and may be nominally marked with a currency value (such as an American Silver Eagle, which has a face value of one dollar).

That is the basic difference: a silver round was produced by a private company and has no face value.

Because these trusted private mints are not governmental agencies, they have much more freedom, resulting in more creative, visually interesting, and unique designs. This means that the silver round market is far more varied and complex.

Some private mints even produce rounds that pay homage to governmental bullion, allowing the investor to get all the silver without a high premium.

Silver rounds also come in many weights, from small-size fractional pieces up to 5 ounce rounds.

Silver rounds are often produced in a more limited number and can therefore be great collectors’ items. More than other types of investment bullion, silver rounds speak to the individuality and personality of their owner--there is a piece for everyone.
