As a form of savings or investment, the best way to hold physical silver is in the form of silver bullion bars and silver bullion coins. Within this market segment, BullionStar stocks a very wide selection of high-quality investment grade silver bars and silver coins from the world’s best mints and refineries. These include precious metals refineries such as Heraeus of Germany, PAMP and Metalor of Switzerland, Scottsdale of the US and Nadir of Turkey, and national mints such as the Royal Canadian Mint, Perth Mint, Royal Mint of Britain and the US Mint.
Investment silver bars and silver coins have a silver purity of 0.999 or higher and as such are exempt from Singapore Goods and Services Tax (GST). So you pay no sales tax when buying investment silver bars and coins from BullionStar.
Silver bars are produced as either cast bars which have a matt appearance, or minted silver bars which have a polished high-lustre finish. Generally, retail silver bars are in the weight range of 15 kgs down to small silver bars in the 3 oz to 5 oz range.
While the most common weight for silver coins is the 1 troy ounce weight such as the best-selling 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins, silver bullion coins are also produced in weights such as 2 oz, 10 oz, and very large 1 kg silver coins. BullionStar also stocks a range of silver rounds which are also exempt from Singapore’s Goods and Services (GST) tax.
In general, larger silver bars will have lower premiums over the spot price compared to smaller silver bars, while large silver coins will have lower premiums than those of smaller silver coins.
In addition to silver bullion bars and coins, BullionStar also stocks an extensive range of collectible and numismatic silver products. These include limited mintage and proof silver coins, collector silver coins showcasing themes of wildlife and natural history from such mints as the Perth Mint and Royal Canadian Mint, and numismatic silver coins graded by the independent Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC),
With BullionStar’s Bullion Savings Program (BSP), customers can also save in the form of silver grams with the option of then converting these silver grams into Heraeus 15 kg silver bars.
