QUICK STATS (silver mined to date, etc.) has moved here.
This website is all about silver (chemical symbol: Ag), as a potential investment. We don't sell silver, we just provide you with a lot of information.
SUMMARY: In general, the price of silver follows the price of gold (but silver's price moves tend to be greater). Some people believe that silver has much more potential for price growth in the long term than gold (see the Gold Versus Silver debate page). If you invest in gold, you may want to consider trading some for silver (you can get about 75.66 ounces of silver for every ounce of gold). In most cases, the best way to buy silver is to have physical possession, unless you invest in large enough quantities that it is safer to store in a warehouse.
