We're often asked which type of silver bullion coins should I buy to get the best value silver ounces / pound?

Generally speaking there's an old adage that 'premium always disappears' when it comes to bullion

  • Buy quality, Mint recognised silver coins at the lowest premium you can find
  • Any official Mint pure .999 silver bullion coins, ideally tax/vat free to get the best price
  • Official Mint silver coins which are legal tender i.e. have a face value in their country of origin which gives them authenticity
  • Added re-sale appeal of lower mintage coinage, but don't overpay the premium to get it, unless you're collecting
  • UK Britannia £2 silver .999 bullion are always popular with UK silver buyers, CGT free - but again be weary of overpaying premiums especially if making gains of around £10k + isn't go to be a real issue for you, it's often as well to look at the more interesting, collectable World Mint coins, or scarcer limited mintage silver, if the price per ounce is attractive.
  • Scrap silver, pre-1920 Sterling silver coinage is .925 silver and always highly desired by both silver stackers and numismatic coin collectors

  1. UK £2 Britannia .999 silver from 2013-2020

  3. Perth Mint 1ounce .9999 silver rectangle Dragon bullion bars, has limited mintage and new design each year
  4. Canadian Maple-Leaf 9999 silver, good World renowned bullion coin, added security features make it hard to forge 
  5. USA American 1 ounce silver Eagle, World recognised, low premium in USA but often higher priced in UK/EU
