Why buy silver bullion coins?
Investors will enjoy buying silver coins instead of bars for the sake of collecting. In fact, some silver coins like the Chinese Panda, or the Australian Kangaroo series have a design that changes every year. You can then start collecting each minting year in a bullion series. In summary, buying 1oz silver coins add enjoyment and collectability to silver bullion investment.
In most cases, choosing between silver coins or bars will be a matter of preference. It will depend on your investment goals and motives. In general, silver coins carry a higher premium as opposed to bars. However, most silver bullion coins are more affordable.
Such coins like the silver britania are produced in large quantities every year. As a result, these coins are very popular in the market, have high market liquidity and are easy to trade. This makes silver bullion coins appealing as an investment choice.
Finally, some silver coins have additional tax added benefits. Silver Britannia for instance is ideal for British investors because they are exempt from Capital Gain Tax (CGT). This is due to the legal tender status of the coin in the UK. Similarly, Silver Eagle can be used in IRA plans for US citizens.
