By reaching this point in our investing guide, you have received a well-rounded precious metals education, and may be thinking about making your first investment. If so, you may still be a bit confused as to what precious metal products are best for your personal investment goals and financial situation. Below we have listed our three most popular products, and explained to which sort of investor each product has the most appeal.
We listed these two products together as they are virtually the same – their weight, purity, and even their prices are the same. Our 1 ounce silver bars and rounds are stackable (thus easily stored), easily divisible (you can piece them out ounce by ounce, as opposed to larger bars like 5 or 10 ounce bars), and offer a very low premium over the spot price of silver.
Ten ounce silver bars offer a lot of the same advantages as 1 ounce silver bars, but at a lower premium over spot. Our 10 ounce silver bars are stackable and offer an extremely low premium over the spot price of silver.
Our third most popular product is our 1 ounce gold bars. One ounce gold bars are a little bit different than our 1 or 10 ounce silver bars, as they are significantly more expensive due to their gold content, but also offer a lower percentage premium over the spot price of the metal contained in each product.
Although the products we’ve listed above are our most popular products (by total dollars sold), certain investors may find other products on our site that would better suit them. For example, someone who was set on getting into gold but didn’t want to spend $1,500+ on a 1 ounce gold bar may be more interested in our 1 or 10 gram gold bars, despite their higher premium over spot.
