Scottsdale silver makes the nicest bars I've seen. check out the link! https://store.scottsdalesilver.com/ i got mine from the scottsdale ebay store..defiantly my favorite bars are these Scottsdale bars. Favorite silver coin is a tie between Austrian Philharmonic and American Silver Eagle.
One of the biggest mistakes people make is buying silver because it is pretty. Silver is silver, get the ugly stuff. I doesn't matter if it was touched by human hands, it is silver...not a collectible coin. if your touching the silver on silver coins like the silver maple, there's also some numismatic value along with the silver value. Higher grade coins or bars sell for more. If your looking at a MS 64 bar or coin thats gonna add value along with the price of the silver content. I would pay more for something in nice condition if i had the money.
