Why Buy Wholesale Silver?
Many clients putting together a precious metals portfolio are looking to buy both gold and silver. However, Silver trades at a significantly lower premium to gold. In fact, one ounce of gold is worth more than two kilograms of silver. Therefore, clients looking to buy silver coins often look at purchasing larger quantities. Most silver coins are available in Monster Boxes of 500 coins. This is the most popular option for clients looking to buy wholesale silver coins for delivery or for storage. For clients looking to buy silver bars, the most popular option is the 100 ounce silver bar. This bar trades at a significantly lower premium to the 1 ounce silver bar, and they are easily to stack. Larger bars are generally less popular as they become more difficult to lift.
Wholesale Silver Coins vs Silver Bars.
What is the best option for silver investors? Silver bars or silver coins? The answer is that it depends on your investment goals. Wholesale silver coins are available in monster boxes, which are easy to store. Investors also like the fact that silver coins have a legal tender value. In some countries, this has tax advantages. The fact that major governments back silver coins also makes them hugely popular.
On the other hand, silver bars sell for a reduced premium to coins. This makes them a more popular option for investors looking to buy silver based on premium alone. Silver bars can be easily stacked away, and the buy sell spread on them is smaller than the buy sell spread on silver coins.
Wholesale Silver - The Problem with VAT
One of the most difficult considerations for individuals investing in silver in Europe is the VAT. This costs investors an average of 20% more than their purchase price in tax alone if they wish to take delivery. It is for this reason that most silver investors, and particularly those in Europe, select to store their purchase in our vaults instead of taking delivery. It is worth considering as well that British residents do not need to pay Capital Gains Tax on any profits earned on coins deemed UK Legal Tender - these include the silver Britannia and the silver Queen's Beasts series.
