Precious metals as an investment
In times of insecure financial markets and latent inflation there is increased interest in tangible assets as the classic form of capital investment. Inflation threatens monetary assets such as savings accounts, building loan contracts or even life insurance policies with the loss of large amounts of their purchasing power.
Invest in lasting assets
Physical precious metals - especially gold and silver - are becoming increasingly important because they retain their value. For thousands of years precious metals have been recognized exchange media and payment instruments. They have retained their value even in the past few years.
Notwithstanding sporadic fluctuations in the price, precious metals offer a stable base for the long-term safeguarding of your assets.

Silver as an investment metal
Silver is one of the classic and most widespread of the investment metals. Notwithstanding all the short-term fluctuations in the market, silver has continued to rise steadily in value over the past years.
Coins as legal tender
Silver coins usually bear a nominal face value of the currency concerned. The value of the silver exceeds the nominal face value of the coins by a multiple. Therefore they are traded as investment coins throughout the world. Well-known mintages include the Maple Leaf (Canada), the Vienna Philharmonic (Austria) and the Noah's Ark (Armenia) coins.
Silver as a raw material
Unlike gold, silver is an important raw material for industry. In particular the demand from the electronic and solar industry will have further influence on the development of the price of silver. Because it has antibacterial properties, silver is also gaining in importance in medicine and in the textile industry. Experts in precious metals therefore anticipate a positive development in the price of silver in the long term, for silver deposits throughout the world are limited.
Value added tax on silver
Silver coins are liable to value added tax in all the countries of the EU, with 20 per cent value added tax in Slovenia.
