Invest in silver
There are a number of factors that are important to consider when investing in silver. First of all, it is important to remember to take physical delivery of the silver. A lot of the paper silver solutions such as unallocated accounts, futures, ETF:s and mutual funds don't own or don't possess the amount of silver equal to what people have invested. The unallocated paper solutions may trade paper silver or may only have fractional backing of physical silver.
When investing and trading in silver, it is important to select a well-known product that can be easily identified and easily traded. Both silver bars and silver coins from renowned sources may be good options. Whether to choose silver bars or silver coins is an important question. We generally recommend silver coins rather than silver bars since:

Where to buy silver?
You have to make sure that you can take possession of your silver. In many countries such as Germany and Norway, it might not be possible for the selling company to ship your silver to your home address since it may be considered as an import where you have to pay import VAT on the silver. When you buy silver from e.g. Germany or Norway, you often have to store the silver with a third party or travel to collect the silver yourself without any insurance.
