Generic, .999 fine silver bar and silver round products are a very cost effective way to invest in precious metals. With low premiums relative to their silver value, a purity of .999 fineness and more than a 5,000 year track record of being a cherished method of storing wealth, they are very easy to liquidate when that time arises, and they afford great peace of mind in the meantime. More and people people are realizing the wisdom of holding physical precious metals rather than simply trusting numbers on a computer screen to represent their wealth.
These will be generic silver bars, meaning they might be manufactured by any of a number of different companies, and they might show signs of light to moderate handling, minor nicks or dings, or tarnish / discoloration, but they will be in decent condition and contain one full ounce of .999 fine silver. Some bars are simply “branded” with the manufacturer’s name and / or logo, others might be “themed”, such as “Happy Birthday 2010”, etc.
