  • 2018 5-oz Silver ATB - Cumberland Island, GA

    So far, the five-ounce America the Beautiful coin series from the US mint has greatly exceeded recent years in terms of beauty, eye appeal, and collector/investor demand. Mintages are limited for these coins, so don't wait to lock in prices because their premiums rise rapidly once the Mint has finished striking them. Learn More
  • 2018 5-oz Silver ATB - Voyageurs National Park, MN

    So far, the five ounce America the Beautiful coin series from the US mint has greatly exceeded recent years in terms of beauty, eye appeal, and collector/investor demand. Mintages are limited for these coins, so don't wait to lock in prices because their premiums rise rapidly once the Mint has finished striking them. Learn More
  • 2 oz. - 2018 Australian Silver Koala

    WIth a limited mintage of only 75,000 coins, the first-ever two ounce Aussie Silver Koala piedfort coin is one of the most exciting releases from the Perth Mint in many years. Piedfort comes from the French word “pied-fort”, which translates to heavy weight. It is used to describe a specially issued coin which is thicker and heavier than the usual specifications. Struck in 99.99% pure silver, we expect this series to sell-out quickly. The coins are double-thick with a great design featuring a mother and baby koala perched on a branch with radial lines in the background. The coins are packaged at the Perth Mint ten to a tube and in cases of ten tubes, 100 coins in all, totaling 200 ounces of pure silver. All orders of one hundred coins will come in sealed mint cases. We highly recommend acquiring these when they first are released to ensure the best pricing. Learn More
  • 2018 Canadian Silver Wolf - Predator Series

    The 2018 one ounce silver Canadian Wolf is the third release in the highly popular, four-coin Predator Series, and the coins are absolutely beautiful. The worldwide mintage has been limited to only 300,000 coins, lower than the two previous issues of the series at 500,000 minted each. Due to their beautiful designs, low mintage figures, and the price of silver under $20/ounce, it's hard to deny the long-term value in these collectible modern bullion issues. The obverse of the coin depicts an engraved portrait of a wolf in pursuit of its prey. The fine details of the thick, coarse coat and sharp canines showcase the distinctive features that make this one of Canada's premier predators. Expertly engraved and enhanced by the craftsmen at the Royal Canadian Mint, this issue is shipped in sealed rolls of twenty-five coins/roll. Orders of 500 come in mint cases. Learn More
  • 2018 5-oz Silver ATB - Apostle Islands National Lakeshore

    So far, the five ounce America the Beautiful coin series from the US mint has greatly exceeded recent years in terms of beauty, eye appeal, and collector/investor demand. Mintages are limited for these coins, so don't wait to lock in prices because their premiums rise rapidly once the Mint has finished striking them. Wisconsin’s Apostle Islands National Lakeshore was established in 1970 to protect “certain significant islands, shoreline, and light stations of the U.S. and their related geographic, scenic, historic, and scientific values.” The park includes 21 islands in Lake Superior and a 12-mile-long strip of mainland shoreline encompassing more than 69,000 acres. The park features pristine stretches of sand beaches and coves; spectacular sea caves; remnant old-growth upper forests; a diverse population of birds, mammals, amphibians, and fish; and a number of lighthouses and lighthouse complexes. The coin design depicts the sea caves at Devils Island with the lighthouse in the background and a lone kayaker paddling in the foreground. Design candidates were developed in consultation with representatives of Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Learn More
  • 2018 5-oz Silver ATB - Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

    The first issue of 2018, the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore America the Beautiful five ounce silver coin is without a doubt one of the most attractive images so far in the series, which began back in 2010. The park is known for its beauty and multi-colored sandstone rock on Lake Superior. The obverse depicts a lone white pine that grows atop Chapel Rock with the majestic Lake Superior in the background. As with all ATB issues, the bust of President George Washington is shown on the other side, like the Washington Quarter series that began back in 1932. Mintage figures for America the Beautiful coins are incredibly low compared to Silver American Eagles, for example. For this reason, we advise acquiring them when they are first issued and while premiums over silver spot are low. Over time, we have seen many issues appreciate over and above their silver content due to high collector demand and limited supplies. Coins can be ordered singly, in mint rolls of ten (50 oz. of pure silver) or mint-strapped cases of one hundred coins (five hundred ounces of silver, in all). We believe this initial release will be one of the more popular in the series due to the gorgeous design. Learn More

The reverse of each coin depicts The Angel of Victory in front of the Alamo bordered by effigies of Sam Houston and Stephen F. Austin, along with the famous battle-cry, "Remember the Alamo". >Orders of twenty will be shipped to you in mint rolls. >Supplies very limited--call for best pricing on larger orders. Learn More

What are the best silver coins to invest in?

When starting a collection or adding to your precious metals holdings we will always recommend diversifying with private silver coins. Silver remains the most misunderstood of all four major precious metals and appears to offer an extraordinary amount of value at current levels. Today, more than ever, we view silver as a solid store of value and a prudent investment to any properly balanced and diversified precious metals portfolio. We also believe the key is owning private, physical silver coins or bars that you control and hold in your own possession.

One of the best silver coins to own, The Silver American Eagle, is the most popular Silver Bullion Coin in the world today and it has been struck every year since 1986. You can also add world silver coins and silver bars for more diversity. Further suggestions are Silver Canadian Maple Leafs, Australian Koala & Kookaburra Silver Coins, Buffalo Silver Rounds, China Panda Silver Coins, Silver Austrian Philharmonics, & Silver Bullion Bars with various designs.

If you have any questions regarding what silver bullion to own please call or email a Gold and Silver Bullion Advisor at Austin Rare Coins & Bullion… we are always happy to help with your goals and objectives.

The Case for Silver

In our opinion, silver is the most misunderstood, mispriced, and undervalued commodity on the face of the planet. Silver has been considered sound money for thousands of years and is the only commodity you can buy today for less than it was in 1980. It’s an irreplaceable component of the modern age with new uses being discovered every year.

Newcomers to the silver market are surprised to learn that while prices have been falling the past few years, investment demand for physical silver continues to set records around the globe. In 2015 the U.S. Mint struck and sold over 47 million Silver American Eagles, an all-time record. In 2016 the U.S. Mint reported over 2.7 million Silver Eagles sold in the first day of sales alone! This is a staggering number considering that during the 1990s there were entire years where only four million coins were issued.

Questions About Silver Pricing

We’re not the only country reporting record production, either. Most mints around the world are experiencing the same insatiable investor demand for physical coins and bars. Clearly, off the charts investor demand shouldn’t cause lower prices, particularly since silver has fallen in value 70% since 2011 highs and 12% last year alone. So what’s really going on here?

If there is one thing investors have learned over the past few decades, it’s that financial tides can move quickly. Just because something may trade for a certain price on a given day, it doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what it’s really worth. While this is most often the case with equities, we firmly believe this to be the case with silver prices today. You see, today’s silver prices come directly from futures contracts. In most cases, when the contract ends, the buyer doesn’t actually take delivery of the silver but either liquidates the position or takes out another speculative contract. When you take a close look at the futures market as it pertains to precious metals, then the issue becomes very clear.

In 2016 Zerohedge.com reported that the COMEX had promised out 294 times more ounces of gold on paper than they were able to deliver. This means that for every ounce of gold promised there are 293 investors who will be left empty-handed if they try to take delivery. Our research revealed a similar situation in silver futures, which creates comparable problems. First there is a noticable disconnect between physical market supply and paper pricing. Secondly, when investors do rush to take delivery, there will not be enough silver to go around.

Silver Today: Calm Before The Storm?

Given the existing shortfall of supply and growing demand, we feel silver prices can only move upwards long-term. Given imbalances in future pricing there is the distinct likelihood of an absolute price explosion in silver. That’s why we urge you to accumulate it now, before the breakout, and before premiums begin to rise on bullion coins and bars.

Currently, global silver ETF holdings are roughly $5 Billion total. In the ocean of liquidity, debt, and fiat currency, this is a drop in the bucket. Consider this: One aggressive hedge fund or group of investors could immediately corner the market!

The key is to accumulate silver while prices are in a lull and before a breakout begins like we saw in 2011. Back then, after moving sideways between $16 and $20 per ounce, silver rose in value from $20 to $48 in only seven short months!

Dealer inventories around the globe were cleaned out as the rush from paper assets to precious metals took hold. Silver skyrocketing up 240% in just over half a year’s time caused an absolute buying frenzy across the industry and there were delays of up to three months on many standard products we offer like Silver Eagles and Maple Leafs. While nobody can predict exactly when the tide will turn for precious metals, the best strategy in our opinion is to collect all you can at current levels and before investor sentiment changes.

Given the out of control global debt situation today, the fundamental reasons that started the precious metals rally in 2001 are very much in play. If you have questions or would like to speak with one of our Austin Advisors, just give us a call at 1-800-928-6468.

Buying Opportunity: Low Mintage Silver Bullion Issues

On top of the normal coinage produced each year, sometimes world mints will produce special issues that can rise in value due to their collector appeal. For example, in 2014 the Perth Mint issued a one ounce Silver Saltwater Crocodile coin with a limited mintage of just one million coins and within three weeks of their release they were completely sold out. Interestingly enough they didn’t cost much more than a Silver Eagle, but they are dozens of times more scarce and bring higher premiums.

We have seen numerous issues over the years come and go, and their track records have been impressive. Not only do they move dollar for dollar with the price of silver, but due to their scarcity, beauty and high collector demand they oftentimes are valued well above their metal content. The key is identifying these issues before they go up in value, and stashing them away when they’re first released while prices are still cheap.

Another issue offering added collector value is the five ounce Silver America the Beautiful program by the U.S. Mint. These large silver coins are produced in extremely limited quantities (some of them only have 10,000 coins issued) and have appreciated in value considerably over their intrinsic value alone. Each year, five new designs are released that always sell out quickly due to their popularity, beauty, scarcity, and collector demand.
