Investors like to buy silver to hedge against inflation. Silver has a lower price point than gold so you can buy more of it and it is more affordable to more people. Savvy investors know that you want quality silver in a form that is easily stored. Silver bars are convenient because you can put them inside of a cabinet or lock them away in a safe because they stack easily. With coins, you can stack them but they can fall over and make a mess all over.
