What Types of Silver Bullion are Available?
There are three primary types of silver bullion.
- Coins: Minted by the government, coins carry a legal tender value and can often be invested into a precious metals IRA. Many coins are part of an annually released series, making them highly collectible.

What is a Silver Coin?
A silver coin is a round that is minted and backed by the government. Coins carry a legal tender value, which means you can use it as money to pay for goods and services. Because of silver’s value, many people buy silver coins as an investment tool or as an addition to a coin collection.
What is the Difference Between Sovereign and Privately Minted Bullion?
Sovereign mints operate in connection with national governments. The products produced by sovereign mints must meet certain regulations and requirements, which help ensure quality. Many sovereign minted products carry legal tender, such as coinage. Examples of sovereign mints include the United States Mint, the Perth Mint, and the Royal Canadian Mint.
Private mints operate independent of the government, and therefore are free of regulations. Products produced by private mints may have unique designs, along with varying purity and metal content. Privately minted bullion increases the supply of available metals. Examples of private mints include PAMP Suisse, Engelhard, and Johnson Matthey.

What Silver Should I Invest In?
A well-built portfolio will contain a variety of silver and gold bullion. Bars and rounds are a stable investment. Coins maintain more value because of their limited production and collectibility. For this reason, a coin may cost more than a round of the same weight.
Many investors enjoy the collecting aspect of owning silver. For instance, an investor may buy each annually released coin in a beloved series. Other investors are more interested in collecting entire series of rounds. The possibilities are endless for collecting silver and enhancing the value of your portfolio.
