By far, silver coins are our best seller. This is for a very good reason: Compared to gold and platinum, they are very inexpensive to start with. If you want to start a collection or to start stacking for a rainy day, silver is an inexpensive way to start. Any silver coin minted 1964 or earlier contains 90% pure silver & 10% copper. Typically, their silver value outweighs their currency value just because of the silver content. Another way to buy silver coins is to purchase one ounce .999 fine silver “rounds” or one ounce .999 silver dollars like Silver American Eagles, Canadian Mapleleafs, Australian Perths, British Commens or Mexican Libertads. We are also a large buyer of the coins mentioned above.
Silver rounds are privately minted (not minted by Governments or countries). They usually cost less than silver coins minted by other countries, but not much less. Sometimes, they are very comparative in price. Typically, the silver rounds contain one ounce of pure silver (.999 fine) and depict various images on them, commemorating special events. These are great collectible items and also offer a hedge since they contain pure silver, which is a very tradable commodity. Decatur Jewelry & Pawn also buys these silver rounds mentioned above.
Silver bars come in a variety of weights. The most common are the one, five, ten and one hundred ounce bars. Each silver bar contains .999 pure silver in that bar’s weight. Other weights are also available, but less common. 1,000 ounce bars are available, but not as popular. The most popular is the one ounce silver bar because it’s so affordable and easy to store and transport. We sell all varieties and brands of silver bars. Decatur Jewelry & Pawn also buys these silver bars mentioned above.
