A very obvious and easy way to invest in silver is purchasing physical silver such as silver bullions, silver bars or silver coins. To start with, you can opt for silver bullions ranging from one to hundred ounce rounds. The most authentic silver rounds are those which are minted by national governments such as U.S. Eagles, Canadian Maples and UK Britannia. Silver bars weighing 1,000 ounces minted by private minting and mining companies are also available in the market. Buy any of these which fit in your budget. All these forms are available at local shops and online auctions. You can also purchase them through mail order from bullion dealers.

Buying physical silver is generally for long term investment plans. But if you are targeting to earn financial benefits in near future, go for short term investment options. The most common option is indulging in Exchange Traded Fund (ETF). The transactions of ETFs take place under the ticker symbol SLV and can be traded same as stock.

Moreover, dealing in the stocks of silver mining companies is also another best way to invest in silver market but considered to be carrying more risk. The reason is silver mining is believed to be risky and expensive enterprise. In addition to that, individual mining companies carry variety of factors other than prices on silver and trends in silver market that affect the entire business. To avoid financial loss, put your best efforts for research and invest your money in the stocks of variety of mining companies instead of just one through several ETF or mutual fund plans.

The most challenging way of investing in silvermarket which is typically meant for the most advanced traders is to dealing directly with silver futures. Silver futures contracts are considered valid for only a month which compels the traders to sell them at any cost before they expire, even at a loss, to avoid accepting a delivery of physical silver. These silver future contracts are large and expensive. But if dealt with properly, they fetch interesting financial returns!
