Much like the Atlantis Mint highlighted earlier, Monarch Precious Metals is renowned for its hand-poured, hand-stamped bars that are available in vast array of one-of-a-kind finishes. Opened only recently in 2008 in the Rogue Valley of southeastern Oregon, Monarch products are rising quickly in the crowded precious metals marketplace. The following are some of its latest and greatest designs:
Silver bars are available from online retailers, such as ourselves, directly from private mints, physical silver and gold shops, auction sites like eBay, and in some countries directly from banks. Bars produced by certain mints are more readily available than others. Silver.com can help an investor find the correct size and mint, as well as offer introductions to previously unconsidered options. Some sizes are far more common than others, making them more readily available to purchase. Ten and 100 ounce sizes are much more common than 25 and 50.
Silver bullion coins are possibly the oldest type of coinage in history. The use of these coins for trade dates back to the drachma used during Greek times. A collector purchases coins as a hobby and these coins may or may not have value. These coins can include the Mexican Silver Libertad and the Chinese Silver Panda coin. Coins sold by weight are purchased to store financial value for the future. Money Metals recommends investing in coins such as the Austrian Philharmonic coins, the African Silver Krugerrand, products from the America the Beautiful Series and the products listed below:

1 Kilo Valcambi Silver Bar Matte: On the obverse side of the bar is the engraving of the Valcambi Suisse corporate logo at the top. The logo is followed by the bar’s weight, metal content, and purity. An assayer’s mark is engraved near the bottom of the bar, just above an individual serial number. The reverse face of the bar features the full corporate name of Valcambi Suisse engraved horizontally along the bar, with a background that features an ever expanding image of the Valcambi logo.
5 oz Fortuna Silver Bar: The 5 oz silver bar displays the PAMP Suisse’s trademark Lady Fortuna design, which pays homage to the Roman goddess of luck. In this elegant rendition, Lady Fortuna has been depicted in a blindfold with her hands outstretched before her as she offers the contents of her cornucopia to an unknown recipient. It is intended to convey the arbitrary nature of luck and how easily it can alter a person’s fortune. Equally as compelling as the artwork’s meaning is the craftsmanship behind it.

People with more limited capital to invest in precious metals cannot divest as much as they would desire. Hence, such buyers usually prefer less expensive and low-risk silver bullion products with lower premiums over spot, offering a modest appreciation over time – granting them with inflation-proof, financial protection. This is the best way to hedge against inflation and is recommended by financial advisers as a good method of balancing portfolios.
