How Can I Buy Silver As An Investment?
While there are silver mining stocks, silver ETFs and other investments that some people claim to be backed in silver, nothing compares to the feel of the heft of your investment in your own bare hands.
Most often, silver trades in the form of bars or coins. Silver coins, produced by sovereign mints of the world, usually have a face value in the local currency of the country of origin.
Private mints also produce a vast selection of silver rounds and silver bars. Silver rounds and silver bars both have purity, weight and certificate stamps or assay cards and are available in wide assortment of sizes, shapes and weights.
These rounds look similar to coins, but do not carry a denominated face value like coins, and they are not guaranteed by a sovereign mint. Nonetheless, silver rounds are one of the most popular ways to invest in silver bullion.

How Does the Silver Spot Price Affect Me?
Since silver products, like Silver American Eagles, Silver Maple Leafs, or even jewelry, in many cases are priced based on the spot price for the underlying metal value PLUS any premium associated with the type of silver product (bar or coin). The spot price is the primary driver for the pricing you see on a given product. Generally speaking, the higher the spot price, the higher the price for the final coin or bar, and as the spot price decreases, then the final price for the coin or bar will go down relative to the spot price.
