Moreover, silver is mainly used in over 1, industrial applications and crafts, which in turn leads to a high demand and thus determines the price of silver.
Legal tender coins were often made of silver, because just like gold it is very rare and valuable. In addition, silver has properties that make it particularly suitable for coins. This includes the beautiful shine and the resiliency of silver as a precious metal.
When silver tarnishes it forms the so-called silver sulfide, but by polishing it is relatively easy to remove. As silver naturally tarnishes do not polish the coin as the weight will be lower afterwards and therefore effect the trading value. A tarnished coin does not change in value. Today silver coins are no longer in circulation, but are minted for investors or collectors. Investors appreciate its value and many applications, resulting from the needs of industry and crafts. The Maple Leaf silver coin was introduced in With production in the double-digit millions of coins, the Maple Leaf 1oz is one of the best-selling silver coins in the world.
Customers from all over the world appreciate the high fineness of In a security feature called laser engram was added and consists of the last two digits of the year of issue.
It is located directly below the motif on the front. A small maple leaf can be seen there. Maple Leaf silver coins have a rippled edge and an edge rod.
The design of the front is a maple leaf and on the back is the profile of Queen Elizabeth II. The Vienna Philharmonic 1oz silver was introduced in Just like the Maple Leaf the Philharmonic is one of the best-selling silver bullion coins worldwide. The Vienna Philharmonic is also available as a gold coin, which is the most successful bullion coin in Europe. The Philharmonic is slightly different than other investment-silver coins as is has a smooth knurling without rippled edge.
The design of the front panel shows the representation of eight instruments of classical music, there are: The silver American Eagle of the United States of America is also one of the best-selling bullion coins in the world.
The appearance of the American Eagle has not changed since the first edition in This consistent design and appearance also holds true for the Maple Leaf and the Vienna Philharmonic which is valued by investors. The official mint of the American Eagle is the United States Mint, which is under the department of the treasury. The design of the front shows Lady Liberty "Walking Liberty". The reverse side has a motif of the representation of the Great Seal of the United States.
The 1oz Silver Britannia is one of the best-selling silver coins in the United Kingdom. The silver coin is minted every year and in irregular intervals the design of the front will change. The front always depicts the Britannia which is seen as an allegory for the British Channel Islands. The Kookaburra is available in weights of 1oz, 2oz, 10oz and 1Kg.
The theme changes every year but always shows the representation of a kingfisher. The design of the reverse shows Queen Elizabeth II. Silver bars next to silver coins, are the second option for silver investments. Bars can be bought in weights of up to 15kg. Silver bars are usually minted from 1g to g, weights above g are usually cast. Exceptions are bars which are cast for customers below g, as these customers prefer the cast and thus insensitive surface.
One difference between silver bullion and silver coins is that larger bars have a lower premium. Furthermore, the surface is in cast ingots which is not so easy to scratch because the surface is a little rough. Another visual difference is that cast silver bullion tarnish faster.
This phenomenon is a normal effect because silver becomes tarnished by the contained sulfur particles contained in the air and chemically reacts. The surface then will turn to silver sulfide salt. Tarnished silver bars have a darker color. Silver as an ore in nature is often found only in black as the silver is completely surrounded by silver sulfide.
Silver Bullion is usually stamped with the weight, the manufacturer and sometimes a serial number. Investors who like the shine of silver with a nice motif should opt for silver coins. The best-known manufacturer of silver bars for the European market are mainly based in Switzerland and Germany. The price of silver investments consists of the silver price, premium and VAT. The silver price and premium are affected by a variety of factors, which we will explain in the following paragraph.
Silver is traded on the various exchanges around the world. Supply and demand is the biggest component for the rising or falling price of silver. Furthermore, many other factors play an important role and can significantly affect the price of silver.
To name a few: The dollar, oil prices, world political situation and mining rates of silver. Mining rates are determined by the major mining companies, shareholders, banks and other industries. Another major factor is the price of silver itself, because at a very low price the mining of silver ore is unprofitable.
The price of silver hit a record high of The premium represents the costs incurred by the manufacturers and sellers. It also includes the margin on the silver bars and silver coins. Manufacturers have considerable costs in the refining of and production of bars and coins.
The refining and production process involves expensive equipment, which include blast furnaces, punching machines for rounds , embossing machines etc. The premium is also influenced by the weight of the silver bar or silver coin. Usually higher weight silver products have a smaller premium because production costs are lower, but this can vary from product to product. In addition, there may be differences in premium between the manufacturers and thus between the products. The reason for this is the premium is affected by transportation times, the volume of coins or bars that are produced, and the different cost structures within the company.
For these reasons always compare prices before buying silver. However be sure to buy from a reputable precious metals dealer who has a good track record. In Germany coins are available under the margin scheme, which provides in general lower total silver prices as the seller margin is taxed with the regular VAT rat. The precious metal silver has the great advantage of being in high demand because, unlike metals such as iron and copper, silver is relatively rare.
In addition silver has unique properties. Silver is the element with the highest electrical and thermal conductivity and has the highest light reflection characteristic of all metals.
Furthermore, it is very soft and elastic.
