Unlike other forms of silver, bullion coins need no authentication when it comes to reselling them, which can save you valuable time and effort whenever you decide to sell, not to mention the pesky cost of assaying fees. Legal tender silver bullion coins are always worth their face value meaning that in the event of an emergency you can easily cash them in. They are also free from capital gains tax in the UK. Government-backed silver coins such as the 10oz proofs from the Royal Mint’s Queen’s Beast series also have a guaranteed purity. Investors can, therefore, be confident in the quality and quantity of the silver they are purchasing. They are also widely traded should you ever need to find a buyer.
Some of the most popular and widely available silver coins are produced in variants of 10oz. These include Australian silver lunar coins, Canadian silver maple leaf coins and Australian silver Kookaburra coins. Rare and particularly interesting coins are often favoured by coin collectors. As a result, some coins often end up being sold for a far greater price than their material value. You do not need any previous experience or expertise in silver bullion coins to benefit from collecting or investing in them, unlike certain collector’s coins or semi numismatics which require more research. Buying silver bullion in slightly larger quantities such as 10oz variant silver coins can often save you money in the long run as it is typically cheaper to buy silver in larger amounts.
