Why Silver Bullion?
Silver is a truly unique and timeless precious metal. It is demanded for both industrial purposes and as a secure store of value lasting throughout ancient civilization through modern times. There are a growing number of industrial uses for silver: smart phones, flat screen TV’s and medical applications. Silver is a valuable and practical industrial commodity, as well as an appealing investment which has been used since Biblical Times.
$20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle
The rarity, beauty, and history make the $20 Saint Gaudens gold coin one of the most sought-after gold coins by collectors and investors. President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt commissioned America’s premiere sculptor, Augustus Saint Gaudens, to design coins that rival the beauty of Ancient Greek coins while displaying America’s rise to prominence in the world. The meticulous features on this coin earned its place as Saint Gaudens’ most famous artwork; however, quarter of a century later, most of these coins were among the private gold confiscated for the ordered melt-down by President Franklin Roosevelt, ironically Teddy Roosevelt’s cousin. The $20 Saint Gaudens gold coin incentivizes precision and craftsmanship for a serious coin collector and is the perfect addition for a gold seeker seeking profit potential with little risk.
Silver Maple Leaf
The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is a silver bullion coin issued annually by the government of Canada. The coin has been minted by the Royal Canadian Mint (R.C.M.) since 1988. The purity of the coin is 99.99% silver, also the highest among other bullion issues which have a 99.9% standard. Silver Maple Leafs differ from their Canadian Gold and Platinum Maple Leaf counterparts in that collector demand generates prices well above and beyond bullion value. In particular, the 1996 and 1997 versions fetched very high prices due to limited mintages (for example, in 1997 just under 101,000 Maple Leafs were minted, in comparison with more than 1.2 million minted in 1999 and the record 17.8 million minted for 2010)
Silver Lunar Year of the Snake
The 2013 Silver Lunar Year of the Snake coin features a snake curled around a tree branch. The Chinese character for ‘Snake’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Snake’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark. The Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse.
In the Chinese Lunar Calendar, 2013 is the Year of the Snake. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be intelligent, graceful, independent, analytical and charming.
