One of the most popular 1-oz silver rounds currently being produced is the Buffalo/Indian Head design. However, there is no one specific mint producing them, so different variations of that design are often found. Sunshine Minting is a very well known brand that produces 1-oz rounds that are also readily available.
Other silver bullion rounds
While not common, sometimes current manufacturers of silver rounds shut their doors for various reasons. These silver rounds will continue to be recognized as good forms of metal, but will often find themselves in the “generic round” category.
Occasionally, silver rounds that were produced many years ago, some even decades ago, show up in the secondary market and are available at lower premiums than the silver rounds currently being minted. These 1-oz rounds fall into the “generic round” category as well. Often times these rounds will have light to heavy tarnishing, considered to be a desirable patina to some investors. When available, we offer them on our Silver Specials Page.
Silver rounds in IRAs
For silver rounds to be eligible for IRAs, they must be at least .999 fine.
