Investing in Silver in Madurai
Silver coins are a basic form of investment in silver, available in weights from 10 grams to 500 grams from many vendors. It’s important to ensure that your silver is embossed, marked, stamped or engraved in some way to certify its level of purity. A certificate is also usually issued along with your silver. The risk and reward is marginally lesser in case of coins, because the amount and weight of silver being held is in a lesser quantity.
Silver bullion provides the option to invest in greater weight units, in the form of bars or tokens that range from 500 grams up to 5 kilos. Since a larger physical quantity of silver is bought and held, the changes in market prices will be more impactful on the final profit or loss resulting from the same. Investing in larger quantities is marginally cheaper and most bullion bars are also embossed with serial numbers, which makes it hard to counterfeit them.
Silver coins and bullion can be immediately sold to a merchant for up to 75% of its value in the market at that particular date, and can be held for longer periods of time to secure a higher price. In this way, it can be collected, stacked, and used as a safety net that appreciates over time. Collectors and those not proactively involved in managing their silver investment portfolio chose this option, as the silver passively increases its own value anyway.
Silver jewelry incurs a 10% making charge and a 15% melting charge at the time of sale thus increasing the amount of money you spend on acquiring it, and reducing the amount you’ll receive when you want to sell. It is the most common form of silver traded in India. It is either held for its craftsmanship and value therein, or given as a gift during one of the many festivals and marriages that include the purchase or gifting of precious metals as assets with aesthetic appeal.
Banks (like ICICI, HDFC, Kotak, etc.) sell silver through a secure channel and will give you the purest form of certifiedsilver, at a price that’s usually higher than the current market rate. International certification authorities and mints are where the banks source their silver, importing it and delivering it to you at a cost that almost justifies the extra cost per gram that you will end up paying.
