Why Buy Silver?

"Much like gold, silver trades as a commodity-currency asset. Particularly in the emerging world, where asset seizures and violent regime change are more common, investors have looked at silver, and gold, as monetary assets."

Agustino Fontevecchia, Forbes 2011  


Silver, similar to other precious metals, can be used as an investment and has for centuries been regarded as a form of money and store of value. Invented by the Ancient Greeks around 650BC, silver drachmas a popular trade coin, were probably the oldest mass usage of this precious metal. 

Many factors determine the value of a silver coin, such as its rarity, demand, condition and the number originally minted. As well as a collector’s item, silver bullion coins are popular among people who desire a "hedge" against currency inflation or a store of value. 


The Silver price is influenced by several factors including industrial demand, mines supply, investment demand and, like gold, geopolitical risks as well as financial instability in the market. Two thirds of the annual silver production is used in non recoverable amounts in industry production. This makes what is left scarcer and more desirable.
