How TO Buy Silver Bullion

Bron Suchecki, The Perth Mint's Manager, Analysis and Strategy, presents a beginner's guide to buying gold and silver bullion in this three-part series recorded at the 2010 ANDA Coin Show in Sydney. Bron begins with a brief look at why investors buy precious metals before discussing the benefits of bullion bars with some great advice on how to check the best brands.As a Government owned company, The Perth Mint's indpendent audit is overseen by the Auditor General of the Western Australian Government.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.
Silver 100 oz. Bars & Silver 10 oz. Bars . Johnson Matthey 100 oz. Silver Bullion Bar .
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!).

Bars are good because they have the narrowest bid/ask spread among bullion investments.
