Why silver bars?
Metal Market Europe company stores 100 and 1,000 oz silver bars in Loomis warehouses in Zurich and Frankfurt. These bars come solely from the most prestigious and valued silver refiners, approved by London Bullion Market Association (LBMA). Silver bars weighing 100 and 1,000 oz are the most popular products among the investors due to the low premium which increases their liquidity.
London Bullion Market Association (LBMA)
LBMA is an international industry association handling gold and silver, also called the London Gold Market. The organization determines and supervises restrictive requirements concerning quality and security of products at London Bullion Market.
There are other institutions in the world which issue their own accreditations. Nevertheless, it is LBMA that has the greatest importance and decides which producers will be able to enjoy the greatest interest of the clients.
LBMA accreditation is the confirmation of a given product high quality and a guarantee of the compliance with a number of strict requirements. Among others, the proper weight and purity of bullion, as well as mandatory display of necessary information on the product (serial number, purity, weight, year of production and a stamp). For silver and gold there are different requirements. The producers, who meet all the requirements, are listed on the so called ‘Good Delivery List’; a confirmation of the supplier’s credibility.
Only the biggest producers are able to meet the requirements set by LBMA. A high reputation of the producer translates into better recognizability of the product in other countries – thus, the investor gains confidence in the product, and due to its widespread recognition its sale is faster and smoother.
Therefore, when choosing the investment into 100 and 1,000 oz silver bars, it is important to invest in a bar produced by a refinery listed by LBMA, as these refineries are recognizable and enjoy confidence in the market.
Metal Market Europe offers a wide range of silver bars from refineries approved by LBMA, such as Metalor, PAMP, Umicore, Asahi, Royal Canadian Mint, Argor Heraeus, Engelhard or Valcambi. All the bars are of .999 purity or higher and are stored in a safe, duty free warehouse.
