Coins are the ultimate, but also the most expensive form of silver. A coin is a piece of silver, shaped like a round, that is minted and distributed by the national mint of a particular country. Just as the American Eagle is manufactured by the US Mint, the Canadian Maple Leaf is produced by Canada. In China, the primary silver coin is known as the Silver Panda. Many countries from all over the world have their own national coins, and they tend to be the most popular and in-demand items on the market.
Coins are also more expensive than their bar and round counterparts. Though the amount of actual silver is often times equal to that found in other forms of bullion, the price of coins will be higher due to the raised collector and secondary market demand. Coins are naturally rare and have added value because they are scarce, whereas bars and rounds are simply pure bullion that are produced in virtually limitless quantities.
