Buy Silvercoins and Silverbars
Where to buy Silver?
Silver, unlike gold, is subject to VAT and for collector's coins the so-called margin scheme applies. For margin scheme sold products there is no VAT displayed in the final price but the seller pays an importation tax and standard VAT rate on the margin. This explains the higher prices compared to bonded warehouses where products are NOT in free circulation. Buying silver coins under the margin scheme offers the lowest rates in all of Europe as Germany has the lowest importation tax on silver coins.
Silver bars are subject to the standard VAT rate, if you wish to ship silver bars outside of Germany then the shop will automatically invoice the VAT rate of the destination country. EU intra-community sales and deliveries will be also serviced, please contact us providing further documentation and VAT ID.
How to buy gold and silver bullion for investment
All products on CelticGold.eu are in the "investment“ category which means they offer a maximum in purity and trade very close to the gold spot price. This provides the best value to the investor. Over 2,000 different gold and silver bullion products are part of CelticGold‘s trading portfolio ranging from 1/20 oz which is 1.55 metric grams to 1 kilo. The most common denomination for coin investments is 1 (Troy) Ounce. A gold coin is usually legal tender and recognised globally which make the gold coins easy to buy and sell. The most popular gold coin series are: Canadian Maple Leaf, South African Krugerrand, American Eagle and Vienna Philharmonic.
Gold bars, also called gold bullion, offer lower premiums compared to coins due to lower manufacturing costs. Gold bars are often provided with a certificate and range in size from 1 gram to 1 kilo for the private investor. All gold bars (new and circulated) offer a purity of 999/1000 or 24 karat. Gold bars are manufactured by private corporations. Two of the biggest on the planet are Heraeus and Degussa both located in Hanau, Germany. CelticGold offers all sizes from different manufacturers. In addition to the classical gold bars we also offer Combibars. A Combibar contains 50 x 1 gram gold in one sheet, to be easily divided. The most popular manufacturers and bars: Heraeus, Umicore, Perth Mint and Valcambi.
Next to gold, silver has a successful history as a monetary metal. Today silver is used as a most important industrial metal in over 1,000 different products. A modern world without silver would not work. What makes silver, as an investment, so interesting is the simple fact that silver gets consumed. Today there is less above ground silver available than in the 1980s.
Because of the historical link between gold and silver, silver naturally follows gold. But as the silver market is small when compared to gold it is therefore much more volatile.
The key factors when considering silver as an investment are:
less supply than 1980
historical low gold ratio of 1:70
silver is consumed
essential in industrial applications
no replacement to silver

What's the gold price?
Price Update and Gold Price explained
The buying price of gold coins and gold bars is the composition of the current price of gold, which is traded on the commodity exchange around the world, and the so-called premium levied by the Mints, producing companies and the bullion dealers.
The most important factor to understand in the price of investment gold coins is the premium, as it can vary from 2% to over 35%. In times of extreme demand, premiums for standard silver coins can reach over 100%. The premium, also called spread at times, is the "adjustment screw" of all market participants trading with the real physical gold and silver products.
The formula looks like this:
Gold price + Premium = Buying Price
Silver price + Premium + tax = Buying Price
It’s always good to check premiums before buying as they may vary from bullion dealer to dealer a bit.
How does the price update work?
The Gold & Silver live price gets updated every minute according to the price movement on the commodity exchanges. This live price is fed to our website and reflects the asking price. This price is built on the global commodity exchanges, starting in Europe, then USA and Asia.
On Friday evening at 10.00 pm GMT the New York market closes and over the weekend the price reflected on the ticker is based on the futures. There is naturally little movement throughout the weekend.
In general the price of gold is totally transparent and can be found on our website, in every newspaper, on financial news channels such as Bloomberg, and on financial websites. Gold is usually priced in US-Dollar per (troy) ounce. One ounce of gold equals 31.1034 grams. Gold is also priced in kilos and grams. The gold price is fixed on the main exchanges for gold on the New York (COMEX), London (LBMA), Hong Kong and Sydney (HKEx and ASX).
CelticGold provides 24h live gold and silver prices in (Troy) Ounces and Grams updated every minute. Prices on news websites are often delayed and do not show the latest price movements. A live price provided here from us is best.
What's the price of silver?
Price Update and Gold Price explained
The price of silver is built around commodity exchanges around the world within the same mechanism as gold. Investors who seek to understand the silver price, will find that the buying price for coins and bars is significantly higher than the commodity price. In general, the manufacturing cost are higher and in Europe there is either VAT or a taxation scheme called a margin scheme in place that adds to the price of silver for the ready minted physical silver coin or silver bar. The silver price for collector's items in limited edition and proof quality is even higher than for the typical investment silver coins.
Gold and Silver Mints and Manufacturers
These are the most trusted state owned mints and manufacturers
