The 5 kilo silver bars are struck in 99.9% pure silver. The 5 kilogram format is not always available, depending on market conditions. Within our range of silver bars, the 5 kilo silver bar is one of the largest variants and is especially interesting for the serious business investor. Silver bars are taxed with 21% VAT, as a result, silver bars are very interesting for business investments. As a private individual you are better off with silver coins. Despite the fact that the coins are smaller - and therefore the production costs are higher - this is still more advantageous, because silver coins are traded under a different VAT rate.
Would you like to buy 5 kilos of silver as a private individual? Then choose silver investment coins, or silver bars in combination with storage in our customs depot in Switzerland. That way you buy silver without VAT.
The 5 kilo silver bar is one of the larger denominations, with which you can invest in physical silver. Due to the high weight, the production costs of the silver bar are comparatively much lower than with smaller silver bars.
This reduces the difference between the purchase price of your silver bar and the current silver price, also known as the spread. Business investors often opt for this format.
Keeping 5 kilos of silver in your home is not the most ideal situation. That is why we give you the opportunity to store your silver bar with our partner Edelmetaal Beheer Nederland.
You can choose between the Netherlands and Switzerland for storage. When your 5 kilo silver bar is stored at one of these locations, the silver bar remains your property and it will be stored in your name. As a result, in the event of bankruptcy, you are still the owner of your silver bar. For more information on storing silver, see Storage Information.
