Investors have historically turned to silver bars to hedge against inflation and protect their assets. Silver bullion bars are produced in various sizes and designs, by many different Mints. The low premiums allow investors to spend their money primarily on the pure metal content. Compared to gold bars, silver bars are much more affordable. Some mints known for their silver and gold bars include, but are not limited to, Highland Mint, Johnson Matthey, SilverTowne, Engelhard, RMC, Royal Canadian Mint, Sunshine Mint, OPM Metals, and NTR.
