Investing in Silver Bullion Bars
As investor demand for silver continues to grow, so does the need for different types of silver products that can accommodate different investment strategies. One of these potential strategies revolve around the advantages your portfolio could experience when you buy silver bars. Silver bars have often been wanted by investors who wish to acquire a large portion of metal, usually for storage.
In addition to this, silver bars are the subject of investor demand for a multitude of reasons including the following:
- Much like other precious metals, silver bar prices have an inverse relationship with the value of the dollar, resulting in silver being a historical hedge against the dollar.
- Unlike silver coins, silver bullion bars usually do not have intricate designs. This saved cost of production is passed on to you in the form of a lower premium.
- Historically, silver bar prices have experienced lower premiums than gold bars and other metals, but still carry with them the advantages and power that precious metals bring to a portfolio.
When you want to buy silver bars from Monex, know that you have options. Monex offers two main options for silver bars. For investors looking for smaller quantities we have different 100 ounce silver bars available, and for investors looking to make a bigger investment, we have 1,000 ounce silver bullion bars. The 1,000 ounce silver bullion bar is the standard industry unit and traditionally used for trading and storage. Each aforementioned bar is hallmarked to certify weight and a purity of .999 fine silver bullion. All silver bars, much like all metal purchased from Monex, are also available for home delivery or storage.

Why should I invest in Silver?
Investors and experts have often recommend that 10% to 20% of an investor's assets should be invested in precious metals but the reasons for investing don't stop there. Throughout history, precious metals, including silver, have been a solid hedge against a declining U.S. dollar. While silver has experienced more volatility in the past, compared to gold, silver is still a solid investment.
Should I invest in Gold Bullion or Silver Bullion?
Investments in either gold or silver are completely reliant on the customer's preferences. The important thing behind deciding what to invest in is to ensure you are informed in the metals markets. Our website offers amazing resources to help you decide which investment is right for you. To understand more about why you should invest in gold, silver, palladium or platinum, visit the page on "Why Precious Metals" page and also visit our Special Offers page which contains reports analyzing each of the four precious metals.
Is now a good time to buy Silver Bullion?
As one of the world's most recognized alternative investment, buying silver goes hand-in-hand with greater uncertainty in the world. During recent months, uncertainty has rippled throughout not just our economic system, but geopolitical system as well. When uncertainty looms in the horizon, it suggests an ideal time to buy silver.
What is the difference between Silver Bullion and Silver Coins?
Silver coins are more aesthetically pleasing, containing amazing designs such as the bald eagle with a shield on a Silver American Eagle or the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the 1.5-oz Superleaf™ coin. Though silver bullion does not contain such striking imagery, solid pure silver ingots are extremely beautiful to hold and an incredible precious metal to own. 100 ounces of pure silver bullion and 100 one-ounce coins have the same intrinsic value, but investment grade silver coins trade at a premium while having the advantages of their smaller format and improved authenticity features. Silver bullion is often selected more for larger commercial investments, silver bullion coins increase in value similarly according to their like intrinsic value. Coins, which are truly rare and historically significant, vary in price according to numismatic collector supply and demand and typically not relative to their intrinsic metal value.
How much Silver is needed to diversify a Portfolio?
For those that appreciate how gold works to improve investment reward versus volatility/risk in a portfolio, it is recommended that a minimum of 10% of an investment portfolio should be in precious metals, including silver.

What factors affect the Price of Silver?
Arguably, silver has one of the freest market value mechanism of all assets in the world. As such, economic factors determine the price of silver, mainly the decline of the U.S. dollar, or other fiat currencies which it is measured by. Decreases in the value of one's currency leads to higher prices of silver and greater appreciation for its value as true, honest money. Also, uncertainty in the financial markets such as interest rates, stock prices and political uncertainties generally lead to greater demand for silver and a greater appreciation in the price of silver.
