How to Buy Physical Silver
Though silver is far cheaper than gold, the precious metal maintains a sufficiently high value-to-weight ratio to make achieving exposure through physical possession practical. There are a number of ways to purchase silver bars or silver coins, including web-based bullion dealers, trade shows, and others.
It is also possible for investors to gain physical exposure to silver through certain exchange-traded funds. The underlying holdings of products such as SLV and SIVR are silver bars stored in secure vaults. As such, these products will generally move in unison with spot silver prices, allowing investors to avoid any potentially adverse impact of futures-based strategies.
