Silver's growing industrial demand sets it apart from other precious metals. Every year, new uses for silver's unique chemical properties are discovered, ranging from biotech to electronics. Because there isn't enough silver to meet growing demands, many investors feel that silver is a good choice for their portfolio.
Historically, 12 ounces of silver equal 1 ounce of gold, a 12:1 ratio that dates back centuries. The current ratio of 75:1 indicates that silver is vastly undervalued. Many analysts and experts believe silver should be trading at several times its current price.
Silver is considered relatively safe.
When political and economic insecurity is widespread in the world, investors tend to eschew legal tender in favour of tangible assets such as silver or gold.
It's a kind of money.
While stocks, bonds, and other financial instruments are all recognized sources of wealth, they are basically promissory notes. That makes them susceptible to devaluation as a consequence of policies like quantitative easing. Silver bullion is a tangible asset. Although it’s susceptible to market swings, it is unlikely to ever collapse entirely due to its intrinsic worth. Investors also like the variety of purchase options available for silver such as silver coins, silver bullion bars and our exclusive Sprott Silver.
It’s much more affordable than gold.
The affordability of silver means it’s an especially good choice for new investors. It’s also easier to sell in small amounts than gold. The fact silver bullion is more versatile than gold bullion makes it very attractive to most precious metal investors.
Silver provides a greater rate of return than gold.
Because buying silver is inexpensive, it can provide a far greater percentage gain if the silver price increases. Indeed, the price of silver has historically outpaced the price of gold during bull markets. No wonder lots of investors hedge their bets by including silver bullion in their precious metals portfolio.
Silver has been used as legal currency for thousands of years.
This precious metal has long been recognized for its intrinsic worth, and thus there is an expectation that, unlike fiat currencies, it will remain strong. When investors invest in real silver, whether through buying a silver ingot, pure silver, silver coins, or another form of silver, they feel a sense of security that its value will grow.

When measured in terms of price per ounce, silver bars typically offer the best value for silver investors. That means you’ll get significantly more silver for your investment dollar. One of the reasons silver bars are less expensive per ounce than coins or rounds is that they cost less to make.
Silver bars also come in much larger sizes than most coins or rounds, which is another factor that contributes to them costing less per ounce. Silver bars range in size from just 1 gram to 1000+ troy ounces.
Government mints produce silver coins that have a face value and can be used as legal tender. However, because these silver coins cost more to produce than silver bars, they are more expensive to buy.
Though silver coins are more costly per ounce than silver bars, they provide additional security and the assurance that they were produced by a government mint. A lot of new investors like to start with silver coins as they love the way they look and enjoy the confidence that comes with purchasing a government-minted item.
Silver rounds are privately minted and, when viewed as a bullion item, are very similar to silver bars. The main distinction between bars and rounds is that rounds can carry some very distinctive and unusual designs. This is because private mints have greater creative freedom when it comes to choosing the subject matter for their rounds, and many are quite inventive.
