- Everything You Need to Know About Silver

Welcome to Our website aims to be a complete guide to silver buying, encompassing both physical and “paper” investments, as well as explaining online and local silver purchases. Our homepage will summarize and link to the main sections of our website.

Ways to Own Silver

While most of the public thinks of silver investments as hoards of huge silver bars, there are actually quite a few other ways to own or be exposed to silver as an investment. Physical silver is certainly a common method, and is the one we recommend most, but you can also gain exposure through other “paper”, or non-physical, investments.

Even if you are buying physical, there are hundreds if not thousands of different types of physical silver, all with various purities, shapes, weights, and producers. This section of our guide goes over the various methods for gaining silver exposure, and also classifies each type of physical silver bullion.

If you choose to go with physical bullion, your purchase options will vary from online retailers to local coin shops or coin shows. If you plan on buying online, check out who is one of the largest online dealers of precious metals.
