Silver bullion is available from two sources: Sovereign sponsored mints and private mints. The advantage to sovereign bullion is that it is guaranteed and backed by the government of the country it is minted for and is considered legal tender in the currency of that country. On the other hand, privately minted bullion is only guaranteed by the mint that produces it.
However, the undeniable benefit of private bullion is that it carries a lower premium over the metal spot price. This allows precious metal investors to buy more ounces for the same price compared to sovereign coins. The quality and craftmanship of private bullion is increasing with many mints releasing exciting series showcasing excellent design and execution.
