Silver Outlook 2019: Is It Time to Shine for This Precious Metal?

Silver has a habit of being highly correlated with gold, and we shouldn’t expect this to change anytime soon. Both metals have a history of being used as money, yet they each have unique qualities.

Silver is used more as an industrial metal. And although it is used for investment purposes, it is not used to the same extent as gold. Foreign central banks do not buy silver. If there is a recession and both metals go down, the Chinese central bank will be buying gold. It probably won’t be buying silver. This puts more of a floor under gold in a bear market.

Silver and gold will continue to go up and down in tandem, but silver will be more pronounced. Silver is far more volatile. It will go down in larger percentage terms when both metals are going down. On the flip side, silver will likely go up much faster when the metals are going up.

2019 GB 1 oz Silver Landmarks of Britain (Buckingham Palace)

The fourth and final coin in the Landmarks of Britain bullion series from The Royal Mint features the famous Buckingham Palace. The home of the British monarchy, this significant London landmark is commemorated in .999 fine Silver.

The limited mintage series, Landmarks of Britain, features four coins with contemporary designs depicting major locations within the United Kingdom. 

2019 UK Queen’s Beasts The Falcon of the Plantagenets 2oz Silver Coin

The 2019 UK Queen’s Beasts Falcon of the Plantaganets 2oz Silver Coin is the sixth release from the exclusive Royal Mint bullion range, featuring an original reverse design. The coin’s reverse features a stylised version of the Falcon of the Plantaganets, holding a shield depicting a falcon within an open golden ‘fetterlock’ or padlock. The year-date and ‘Falcon of the Plantaganets’ also feature.

The obverse design depicts the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, and the monetary denomination of £5. Both the obverse and reverse are designed by British Coin Designer Jody Clark, creator of the latest definitive portrait of The Queen on UK coinage.

This coin is the sixth in the series of ten designs that celebrate each of The Queen’s Beasts. The Queen’s Beasts bullion range celebrates the British Monarchy and the centuries of fascinating heraldry that has been a part of their story.

At the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, ten heraldic beasts stood guard. The plaster models were created for the occasion, symbolising the various strands of royal ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen.

The 2018 1oz Dragon and Tiger silver coin

The latest addition to one of the Perth Mint’s most compelling new collections, the 2018 1 oz Dragon and Tiger Silver Coin is a must for serious collectors and a very sound investment. It’s the second in a series that began with the best-selling Dragon and Phoenix (2017) and it is expected to be equally successful.

The 2018 1 oz Dragon and Tiger and its predecessor, the Dragon and Phoenix, are something of a departure from the standard coinage format. Most coins have just one central character, the Australian Kangaroo Nugget or the China Panda, for example, but these have two. The Dragon is the basis of the series and is expected to feature in each new release as it is shown with a range of allies and adversaries.

Unlike the phoenix, which has a mutually harmonious relationship with the dragon, the tiger competes with the dragon for supremacy. These majestic creatures have been inextricably linked in Chinese culture and mythology for thousands of years as they play out their never-ending battle. Their quest for the ever-present flaming pearl is beautifully depicted on the reverse of the 2018 silver 1oz Dragon and Tiger coin; the positioning of the animals denotes the tiger’s Yin, an endurance and strength that is associated with the earth, and the dragon’s Yang, a heavenly force of energy and power. Each creature has been meticulously realised by the Perth Mint’s artists and captured for eternity on fine .9999 silver.

The obverse of this outstanding silver coin features the Sir Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
