When selecting a bullion dealer, it is important that the dealer is open, transparent and offers a no-nonsense price! There are a lot of "coin marketing companies" out there who will rip you off if you do not have your wits about you. We invite you to read our longer blog on which bullion dealer to buy from in the UK.

When purchasing silver bars, the main thing to think about is the size you would like to own. One kilo silver bars have a low premium due to their size - 32.15 troy ounces - but the price is not as easy to track as a 1 oz silver bar. Smaller bars, such as fractional kilo bars, and one-ounce bars, combine convenient size with reasonably low premiums. These are the various sizes of silver bars, some are more unusual, so we may not be able to provide all these sizes. You might think that we would advise one-kilogram silver bars and one-ounce silver coins as the best silver investments, in that order. Our advice can differ with changes in the market and depend on the amount you are looking to invest. One of the main things to consider is whether or not you will need access to your investment.
