For example, a silver bullion bar struck and guaranteed by a government mint, such as the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM), will most often have a higher premium or price when buying, but typically will also receive a higher buy back premium when you sell your silver bar to other investors or silver bullion dealer like us at SD Bullion. Similarly, a silver bar struck by a highly recognizable private silver mint may sell for a slightly higher premium than a smaller less recognizable silver mint. Buyback prices for silver bars can be found online on the corresponding product page.
Buying silver bullion is typically most affordable when you buy silver bullion bars. The most popular silver bars for sale are 1 oz, 10 oz and 100 oz sizes.

Money Metals Exchange has commissioned the creation of a proprietary round design loosely based off of the U.S. Mint’s Walking Liberty silver half dollar from 1916 to 1947. This 50-cent piece was designed by Adolph A. Weinman. It depicted Liberty walking toward the sun. Art historians have deemed it to be one of the most attractive United States coins. A modification of this design has been used on the obverse of the American Eagle since 1986. Our privately minted rounds are branded with our company name and do not bear markings that would create confusion that the round is an actual legal-tender coin. Instead, it is a lower price way to accumulate attractive-looking silver ounces. Money Metals has these rounds in one ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce, and tenth-ounce sizes.

As a vital industrial and monetary metal, it has value around the world, regardless of economic conditions. It can be sold at current market prices as needed. As an investor in silver, buy it in basic forms such as bullion, bars, coins, and rounds to get the most silver for your dollar. Investors typically purchase it by weight, such the troy ounce, pound, gram or kilo. It is priced by its weight in .999 fine silver. If an item contains lower purity levels, it may fetch slightly lower prices per troy ounce of the .999 silver it contains.
Originally formed in Tokyo, Japan in 1952, Asahi Refining Ltd. Remains a Japanese-based business that had previously focused more intently on the collection and refinement of recycled precious metals. As of December 2014 though, the company rapidly expanded its international brand awareness with the high-profile purchase of Johnson Matthey’s more than 150-year-old refining operation. All three of Johnson Matthey’s remaining gold and silver refining operations were purchased by Asahi, which has slowly begun refining silver bars in a variety of sizes. Among those available from JM Bullion are the following:
When it comes to purchasing or selling silver bullion, the market value for silver (also referred to as "spot price") is the basis for all pricing. View the current spot price for silver. Almost all silver products on SD Bullion operate on a silver spot price plus the product premium (also referred to as "over spot") formula to determine the final price. For example, if the market value for silver is X and the product premium is Y, the final price would be X+Y=Z. Premium pricing is mostly consistent per product but the market value for silver changes vastly on a minute by minute basis. Our market feed integrates live up to the minute market prices from worldwide markets. We offer both live and historical market data available on our website's Live Market Prices page. You can customize charts to research and find trends in pricing and compare to other precious metal types.
Historical precedent coupled with current fundamentals point to the likelihood of an explosive super spike in the silver price and a high price plateau beyond that. In the last super spike in 1979, the white metal went from $6 per ounce, to over $49 just 12 months later. In other words, that's an incredible 700% upsurge over the course of a single year! Today, industrial demand will continually increase along with its investment benefits. These factors will cause the price of silver per ounce to reach new highs, or possibly another huge spike similar to 1980. Let's look at additional factors why we're bullish on the poor man's gold:
