Surprisingly there are few places to buy silver rounds. Silver rounds, the investment option with the lowest premium, isn’t the most popular choice for many investors. Yet, even with the limited retailers, there are some excellent choices. Below, we’ve organized the silver rounds sellers into categories based on order size: best for 1oz orders, small, medium, large orders.
While still taking into consideration the customer service, return policy, and reputation, the single most influential factor remained price. Each seller for each category was the lowest price we could find (if you know of a better option drop a comment below).
Best All Around
The Best All Around review goes to Provident Metals, who holds its own in terms of price and service. Provident Metals gets the Best All Around review because of the number designs available, I counted six different designs; the small or large ordering size available; in addition to designs and order sizes, the price is extremely competitive and reasonable, which is why Provident Metals wins in Best All Around.
Best for 1 oz Orders
JM Bullion was launched in late 2011 by two entrepreneurs, Michael, and Jonathan, who truly have a passion for the precious metals market. While the (retail) precious metal market is far from an untapped niche, they noticed that there were needs that other metal retailers didn’t. Those needs like a user-friendly website, dedicated support and investor-friendly features like Automatic Investment Program. Most shoppers couldn’t be happier with JM Bullion. JMBullion.com prices are the lowest anywhere most of the time, and weekly sales present the opportunity to buy silver rounds at a slight premium over spot.
Best for Small Orders
The options for customers looking for more than 1 oz. increase significantly. For those investors looking for 10-100 silver rounds, look to Lynn Coins. Lynn Coins provides multiple designs and options for silver rounds at an attractive price. A low premium on each product offering makes Lynn Coins the best place to buy small orders of silver rounds. One point of disappointment is the limited stock they hold. Under each product offering Lynn Coins gives customers a view of inventory–some of the time a low quantity. I could see how some might be irritated by a lower quantity than desired.
Best for Medium Orders
A relatively new company fits the bill for medium orders. TMG Silver or Silver50.com has a competitively priced selection of silver rounds in numbers of 100-499 at one price and above 500 at an even lower price. At this time Silver50.com has three designs, all replicas of beautiful coins: Peace Dollar Replica, Mercury Dime Replica, and the Buffalo Nickel Replica.
Best for Large Orders
Perhaps the best aspect of buying from APMEX is that the company actually offers volume discounts on all of the bars and coins that it sells to its customers. That might sound like a no-brainer in this business, but it actually isn’t. A large number of online bullion dealers charge a flat per-coin or per-bar rate on gold and silver bullion, as well as other precious metals, and that can cost consumers a significant amount of money when they make larger purchases or big investments. The already-low prices at APMEX.com are paired with volume pricing, easy handling and shopping, and great service, to provide an experience that will just make more sense to customers and their tight budgets.
