Using BullionVault private investors can buy, store and sell physical silver at wholesale prices with narrow spreads.

Your silver is securely stored in professional LBMA-member operated vaults, meaning you pay the lowest storage & insurance costs with no VAT or delivery costs.

United Kingdom users can open an account online or via our mobile app and buy gold all in just a few minutes. You can sell at any time.

The combination of wholesale bullion market prices, low commission to buy and sell, small custody fees and zero VAT mean that owning your metal within silver bars using BullionVault is the most efficient way to buy silver.

Silver coins and small silver bars

Although silver coins and small bars are not an economic form of silver investment, some like to buy silver coins and small bars as gifts or to keep at home.

The key difference and biggest cost factor between vaulted silver and holding smaller units at home, is that coins and small bars incur VAT and shipping costs, as well as being costly to add to home insurance. Investment silver stored and insured at low-cost in an LBMA-member vault is exempt of VAT and saves silver investors 20% in the UK even before any price spreads are taken into consideration.

Our silver cost calculator will help you determine the savings from buying silver in a vault versus having silver coins delivered to you.

Silver ETFs

Exchange-traded trust funds (silver ETFs) track the silver price using complex derivatives, and may not even be backed by bullion. Dealing is restricted to stock-market hours. The annual fee for silver ETFs is about 0.50%, deducted from the quantity of silver backing the shares each day. That charge may not include insurance.

Other trust-fund products called "closed-end funds" track the price of silver less closely. Because they only change the quantity of silver backing their shares irregularly, the share price can vary sharply from the silver underlying it, known as the Net Asset Value.

Needless to say if you invest in Silver ETFs or ETPs you do not own any physical silver.
