The future of physical silver
The current world reserve of silver is an estimated 400,000 tons. However, there is a good chance that, given the increasing demand and the current production rate, silver mining will become unprofitable in approximately twenty years' time. This means that in the future, silver production will be reliant on silver that is already available in the form of jewellery, coins and bullion bars. Due to this expected scarcity, buying silver as an investment has become increasingly popular in recent times.

Silver coins vs. silver bars
When choosing to buy physical silver, you are faced with the following choice: is it better to buy silver coins or silver bars?
Why buy silver coins?
Silver coins are minted by many countries around the world. From investment coins to special coin series. Most coins are produced in the standard weight of 1 troy ounce (31.1 grams), as well in many other common bullion weights, such as 2 troy ounces (62.2), 5 troy ounces (155.5 grams) and even a kilo and more. This offers you a world of flexibility and the opportunity to start a nice collection. In addition, buying silver coins is in many cases slightly cheaper than choosing silver bars due to the difference in the levied tax.
Why buy silver bars?
Silver bars are ideal for buyers who require physical silver in a handy and stackable format. Silver bars are available in small weights, such as 10 grams, 20 grams and troy ounces, as well as in much larger bars weighing several kilos. In addition to silver bars, you can also opt for silver coin bars. A coin bar is a hybrid product that is a bar and coin in one. Keep in mind that silver bars are taxed under the high VAT rate. Coin bars are currently exempt from this and may therefore be a more economical option. However, it is not known whether this may change in future. If you still have doubts as to what is a suitable option for you, take a closer look in the following post: Silver coins or silver bars – what to buy?
