Bullion coins offer slightly more flexibility than investing in silver bars as investors can sell one or two coins fairly easily without having to sell the whole amount like you would with a silver bar. Silver bullion coins also have a guaranteed purity and are backed by the government which means you can always be sure of the quality and amount of silver you are getting in each coin. Certain tax advantages come with some coins as they are considered legal tender meaning they can be purchased capital gains tax-free. If you’re looking to purchase silver as an investment, coins tend to be a better option than collectors coins as they don’t require the same level of research before making your purchase and they are also more widely available. They are also available at a lower premium than collectors coins as they don’t have the same historic value. Many precious metals experts predict a strong future for silver as there is growing industrial demand for the metal. Since silver is a finite resource and could potentially run out one day, it provides an excellent store of value in much the same way as other precious metals such as gold or platinum. This is why the metal is often used as a hedge against inflation or for extra protection during times of economic uncertainty.
