Investment gold and silver

Our primary mission is to provide a viable source of investment silver in South Africa. In South Africa, silver holds a much higher premium to gold. This can be attributed to:

  • South Africa is not a primary silver producer (silver is produced as a byproduct of gold, copper and zinc mining in SA), so there is a local scarcity of silver relative to gold.
  • Silver is VATable in South Africa (VAT is deemed payed on Krugerrands). When VAT is up to three times higher than the markup, this tends to drive up handling costs and retailers markups.
  • Gold is much better understood in South Africa, therefore demands lower premiums.
  • South Africa does not produce a low-price-relative-to-spot silver bullion coin such as do the silver producing nations. The silver bullion coins South Africa does produce are high markup, limited-edition coins aimed the premium investor market.

Given the above market conditions, we are committed to providing reasonably-priced silver to the investor in South Africa. We source internationally, through local mines and mints, or via processing of scrap silver. We are also committed to educating investors on silver as an investment and believe that currently silver presents the investment opportunity of a lifetime - bar none.

We also provide access to gold, platinum and palladium in investment forms.
