One of the easiest and most risk free ways to get started in the field of investment related to precious metals is to start with silver, it comes with all the gains of precious metals with minimal risk. A silver bullion investment does not require you to have a large capital to start off. A troy ounce can be brought for as little as $30 per ounce. Silver is the most affordable and perhaps the most used of all the precious metals, not only in the forms of silverware but also in various industries like jewelry, nanotechnology, water purification , electronics, photography etc. Silver as a metal resists corrosion, is soft, lustrous and one of the best conductors of electricity known at present making it the most sought after metal in electronics and communication industries.

Silver bullion much like the bullion of other precious metals comes in various forms and sizes. Ranging from 1 gram up to 100 Kilo bars. Like other precious metals bullion is the basic form in which silver is traded but unlike gold where an investment of 1/2kg-1kg of gold is considered substantial the same is not true for silver. It is almost a quarter in value of gold but this isnt necessarily a bad thing. As the premiums and potential are relativly the same. When Gold rises due to inflation Silver tends to track along side. so percentage wise whatever you can invest in silver has the same performance as gold., and throughout the ages in economic crisis, we all know what happens to gold.

Unlike bonds and stocks, silver posses a basic intrinsic value so even if the price of silver may fluctuate a little with market trends it never can lose its intrinsic worth. Silver prices have been on a steady incline ever since the markets crashed during 1970-80, dollar lost a lot of value but silver prices soared high like never before. With the current economic climate and the fact were in a short deflation mode as the dollar rises. Its inevitible that the dollar will fall in the long term due to inflation. When this process kicks in in mid 2009, there is a high percentage risk hyper inflation will take over. In these economic conditions Gold and Silver Bullion regin supreeme. As investors around the gold look for safe havens for their wealth.

For investors looking to reduce the volatility of their financies, Investing in silver bullion is easy compared to other commodities. Investment portfolios should consist of larger denominations of silver bullion from 1 ounce upwards.. Smaller denominations are mainly for the novelty factor and wont bring you much in the way of stability. In my personal opinion when investing in silver bullion. I would tend to stick with bullion bars rather than coins. Although there is much discussion on this. My main point is that when you invest in coins. You are paying premiums for design and patterns. This is all very well in a market that supports the collectors. But in bad economic times those very collectors who purchase at higher premiums to get the coins they want. Are also experiencing money shortages and high inflation. Question is, can they afford to collect in a high inflation envronment ?

I personally only stick to silver bullion bars. As there are no premiums other than the buy price and you get what you pay for. Storing silver bullion is easy as the metal is relatively non- reactive. When the great depression of 1930ís hit only those who had read the markets in time and invested in precious metals like silver bullion were safe, with markets looking ever so volatile investing in silver bullion is a wise move. In conclusion silver bullion is a great investment for small and big investors looking to secure a part of their finanical future.
