Historically, investors have used precious metals to hedge against inflation and protect their wealth during challenging economic cycles. Owning silver bullion has proven to be one of the most effective ways to diversify one’s portfolio, and for many investors, silver bars are the bullion of choice.
Silver bars come in a variety of weights, brands and designs, and there’s one for every budget. Made by the most trusted private mints from around the world, silver bullion bars range in size from 1-oz to 1-kilo, giving any investor the selection and the means to protect their holdings.
In addition to the prefered method of purchasing and storing silver bars yourself, you can also hold them in your Self-Directed IRA. This gives you the ability to take advantage of the investment potential of silver bullion, along with the tax benefits of an IRA — adding flexibility to your portfolio.

There are several key reasons investors purchase silver bars:

Silver also has countless industrial uses, many of which have experienced tremendous growth. Semiconductors, computers, cell-phones and other modern technologies contain silver components, thanks to the metal's capacity to conduct electricity.
