THE BEAUTY and Benefits of Silver Bullion

When considering precious metals, savers typically think of gold. Many overlook silver, believing it doesn’t offer as much value. However, silver has outperformed gold during certain precious metals bull markets sparked by some of the worst economies in history.

Augusta Precious Metals proudly offers beautiful silver products with benefits not typically found with other assets.


Physical silver is welcome in an IRA. However, the bars and coins must meet a minimum standard of fineness, or purity.

Purity is measured by how much of the principal metal is present, expressed as parts per thousand. A silver coin with a fineness of 999 is 99.9% pure. The expression “three nines fine” refers to physical silver’s highest level of purity. Silver bullion is never pure to 100%, because trace amounts of copper are added to make each piece more durable.

Silver Purity Requirements

To be eligible for inclusion in a precious metals IRA, physical silver must be 99.9% pure.

American Silver Eagle and Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins are eligible for physical silver IRAs.

Refer to this page on Augusta’s website for more information about gold and silver IRAs.


As with any silver bullion, the value of a bullion coin is based on its silver content and the weight of the coin. Prices fluctuate depending on the daily price of silver in the world market. Each mint that produces silver coins guarantees the purity of the coins’ precious metal content.

Augusta classifies its products as either Common Bullion Products or Premium Products. Common Bullion Products generally are priced in accordance with the value of the precious metal they contain. Either of these products may increase or decrease in value.

We invite you to learn more about physical silver. For more information about silver in a cash account or gold and silver IRA, call Augusta Precious Metals at 800-700-1008 and speak with a customer success agent.
