Sell Silver online

Your success in silver investment will rely, not only on when you buy but also on when you sell your silver.

Historically the price of silver has been lower than gold and now it’s around 85 times lower than the price of gold and this has offered a way for investors to diversify their precious metals holdings at a lower price point entry. As a rare metal, silver prices follow a similar pattern to that of gold but are also influenced by other factors. This means that the decision to sell silver at the best time needs to be an informed one if you are to realise the best profits. Physical Gold can help its customers in two ways when it comes to selling your silver; offering a buyback guarantee for any silver you have brought from us as well as providing free gold & silver investment tips, advice & market news.

When selling silver bars, bullion and silver coins in the UK, you can choose to sell to Physical Gold. We also now buy silver jewellery or other silver items and can also make you an offer on your rare and historical coinsPlease note we do not buy silver plated items.

Knowing what to buy in the first place

If you want to make a decent profit when selling silver, you need to know what products to invest in. Bars and coins are the best options if you’re putting your money into precious metals. Silver coins usually carry higher production costs due to the expenses incurred in design and manufacture. However, there are larger versions of UK legal tender coins in the market like the silver Britannia. Also, coins like the Lunar series and Queen’s Beasts will also be easy to re-sell too.

On the other hand, bars can get you a little more silver for your money, due to lower production costs. Bars can be sold in various sizes such as 1oz, 2oz, 1-kilo and 5-kilo.

It’s important to bear in mind though that greater variety and liquidity can be achieved by investing in well-known coins. Coins like these offer great liquidity as they enjoy a large secondary market and can be easily sold at any point in time. Some popular foreign silver coins, which are easy to buy and sell include the American Eagle, Canadian Maple Leaf and the South African Krugerrand.

Buying UK legal tender coins can help you achieve greater tax efficiency, as they are Capital Gains Tax (CGT) free.

Taking care of your silver

It’s obvious that you would be able to realise a better selling price if your silver has been properly stored and well taken care of. When you buy a bar or a coin, it arrives in sealed packaging. You should not remove the packaging and simply store your silver, as it is in a good quality home safe. In this way, your silver products will be less prone to tarnishing and can fetch a better selling price. If you own some old silver in the form of bars, coins or jewellery, avoid cleaning them with any kind of chemical solution. This may erode the silver and ultimately fetch a lower price. It’s also advisable to keep them in ready-made capsules and presentation boxes wherever you can.
