Gold usually grabs all the headlines, but for many, an investment in silver can be just as savvy.
According to studies by the United States Geological Survey in recent years, there are far fewer deposits of silver to be mined around the globe than previously believed. However that hasn’t slowed demand for the metal, which has soared in recent years. This increase in interest is due not only to investment demand, but also from a wide range of industry such as technology, medical, photography and solar power. Because the demand for silver comes from so many more sources than that of gold, it allows the savvy investor a unique way to diversify their portfolio of precious metals.
You can purchase your silver for physical possession or include it as part of your Precious Metals IRA. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to getting started with an investment in silver; there is much more to know, such as what types of silver bars and coins you can invest in, the process for buying silver and questions to ask your silver dealer.
