When spot price for silver is high and a bit too steep, buying the usual silver coins sounds unreasonable. Why not buy something else? Like a generic silver, perhaps?
If I have to buy generic silver for my stack, I'd want it to bring me the same satisfaction as I would get from any special coin purchase.
For this reason, a general rule that I adhere to in making precious metal purchases is: buy only what I like.
Other than the lower cost of generic silver, it makes better sense to me when the design contributes to a theme that represents what I believe in.
There are different styles of generic silver bars and rounds. A private mint or foundry may produce "logo bars" or "logo rounds", or have different designs commonly known as "art bars" and "art rounds". Some private mints or foundries may also produce silver pieces that they refer to as "silver trade units".
The words “Silver Trade Unit” capture the bullion’s purpose.
By the way, generic silver may be expensive too... especially the vintage ones.
