1kg Silver Bullion Bars are a mainstay of silver investment, making up much of the worlds diverse portfolios and produced by the vast majority of the world’s top mints. A more affordable option than gold, they offer an opportunity for those with limited budgets who are seeking to enter into the world of precious metal investment. They are also a convenient way for those already in the market to diversify, a tactic that is highly recommended in order to guard against the fluctuating markets of each product.
It is thought that in the short to medium term that the price of silver is likely to increase. This is due to the fact that investment in new sources of the precious metal fell over the last decade, which in turn leads to a scarcity of new investment opportunities and a rise in price. It is also a fact that silver has become an increasingly important material in the production of electronic goods, further increasing its desirability.
As an investment, silver remains extremely popular, partly because its spot price is so low. The spot price is the amount of cost that each handler adds on to the original value of the item’s content. Spot prices are calculated by how much these extras total at a specific given moment.
Methods of producing silver bars differ and each of these have their own advantages and disadvantages. Poured or cast bars are made by pouring liquid silver into casts. Once they have set they produce unique items, which, while being easier to protect against fraud, are imperfect in appearance. Pressed bars instead cut the metal and imprint the refiner’s name on it. These appear identical and are cheaper to produce but harder to track.
