Silver Bullion Facts
People who invest in silver bullion have two broad categories to choose from:
1) Privately manufactured.
2) Government minted.
We define “Privately manufactured” silver bullion as bullion products produced by companies that sell their bullion based solely on the current silver price and demand.
We define “Government minted” as silver bullion minted by sovereign countries such as United States, Canada, Great Britain, Austria, Australia, and many more. These are priced based on current silver price and a premium over the silver value.
Most silver investors prefer privately manufactured (also referred to as “generic silver”) because it is less expensive. Modern generic silver bullion is at least .999 pure.
Here is a list of the most well-known manufacturers of generic silver bullion:
