Silver Bullion Coins

Silver bullion coins are a mint store of wealth. They are government-issued legal tender coins with a nominal face value as they are intended for investment and not for use in everyday commerce. Their weight is measured in troy-ounces, each troy ounce contains 31.1 grams of silver. Silver bullion coins are hallmarked stamped with their weight and purity, commonly .999 or .9999 pure silver. The value of bullion coins is based on their weight and purity. The American Silver Eagle issued since 1986 is the number one ranked silver bullion coin in the world.

The Austrian Philharmonic is the most popular coin issued with a denomination in Euros. The South African Krugerrand is the only legal tender coin issued with no face value.
