Buying silver bars is a good way to invest part of one’s wealth in a commodity that is both portable and has intrinsic value.
History shows that silver has been used as a monetary metal for centuries. The ancient Romans used silver coins to pay for their daily bread. Silver was a primary metal in American coins up until 1964.
Today, however, silver is mostly used for industrial processes. That doesn’t lessen its value, though. Silver is malleable and yet strong, making it an ideal metal for electrical conductivity. As such, silver is a perfect metal for manufacturing various items, from computer chips to jet aircraft.
One reason for investors to consider buying silver bars is its scarcity.
Approximately 12 billion ounces of silver existed in the world when the 20th century began. Much of that silver was used for industrial manufacturing. The total amount in existence today is about 300 million ounces of refined silver. The scarcity of silver makes purchasing silver bars a good investment today.
Add that scarcity together with the political instability in the world, and one can see the wisdom of holding physical silver as an investment. The silver bar is the perfect medium for storing precious silver.
A portable silver bar is offered in the 100 ounce size for trade and personal storage. It has a .999 percent purity and is made by trusted suppliers, including Engelhard and the Royal Canadian Mint.
