Silver Coins, Bars, or Rounds?
Coins typically fall to the side of the collector while bars attract the investors. Silver coins are coveted worldwide for their beauty, design, and historical value; they hold tremendous significance among collectors.
Silver bullion is typically most affordable in bars, versus coins or rounds because you can get the most silver ounces for your money – a priority for investors. Both are IRA eligible.
Rounds are privately minted, contain investment-grade silver, high value, low premium, but no guarantee for purity and weight from a private mint. It’s not as tricky as it seems, and we can help.
Mints, and their hallmark coins

The American Silver Eagle is a silver bullion coin released annually by the U.S. mint; that many consider the “most beautiful modern silver coins.” The obverse of each coin an homage to a particular location in the U.S., the reverse side featuring imagery from various national parks, national forests, or monuments in the same region as the obverse location.
Starting in 2010 and still going, the America the Beautiful 5-ounce silver bullion coins comprise a series. Its initial release wasn’t well-received; however, they’ve become increasingly popular with their low mintage and new design on each year’s release (with near-immediate sell-out) often holding high market values above melt value. The “ATB” is Five Troy ounces of .999 pure silver – the largest silver coin issued by the U.S. Mint.
