With the gold/silver price ratio at 88.5, silver holds more upside potential than gold. If the ratio were only 60, where it has been many times, the price of silver would be $21.
One of the best ways to own silver bullion is bar form. 100-oz. silver bars are the most popular of all the bars. However, kilo silver bars (32.15 oz.) are now available. While kilo gold bars have been common for years, kilo silver bars rarely have been available.
Now, Bay Precious Metals is turning out .9999 fine kilo silver bars, and they are available at the same price as 100-oz. silver bars. Large purchases of silver bars should probably be 100-oz. bars; however, for a purchase of up to 2,000-3,000 ounces, kilo silver bars make sense. Three kilo bars weight less than a 100-oz. bar, making them easier to handle and store.
