More than any other precious metal, silver’s unique qualities make it indispensable. Widely used in the manufacture of jewellery and collectables, demand for silver is also underpinned by a broad range of industrial applications. Thanks to its malleability, conductivity and resistance to corrosion, silver is an important component in the telecommunications, medical and energy sectors.
Many investors choose silver as it is more affordable than gold. Silver is also more volatile than gold, attracting investors looking for short-term gains. With a range of silver investment options now available from The Royal Mint, it has never been easier to stack silver.
