Here are some secrets to buying silver and buying gold. You have some choices such as 1000 oz silver bars, 400 oz gold bars, 100 oz, 10 oz or 1 oz silver and gold bars and my favorite 1 oz mint coins.If you want 100 oz. Silver Bars, or bar bullion, (also in 10 oz Silver Bars) to preserve value, go with J.M.s (Johnson Matthey), Engelhard, Sunshine Minting, U.S. Assay, A-Mark, Silvertowne, and APMEX bars. These brands are good because they are well known and trusted and have a stamp of authenticity (and they stack well in safe!).Whatever form you decide on when investing in silver, make sure it’s a purity of .999 fine silver whether buying bullion from a bullion dealer, coin shop, or Ebay.
Bars are good because they have the narrowest bid/ask spread among bullion investments.
