Why can’t I buy silver at the spot silver price?


Silver is sold by dealers with a premium to the current spot price. When one is looking to sell metals to a dealer, the dealer may offer spot or slightly below the spot price for one’s metals.  When buying physical precious metals, there is an additional charge called the premium. The premium is the real world cost to take precious metals from the ground, refine it, and mint it into a final retail product. 


Even the refinery and mints do not buy silver at the spot price, they have premiums that they have to pay to acquire the physical metal above the spot price. These costs all get worked into the final retail price or premium.

What is the difference between bid and ask prices?


The bid price is the maximum offer available for a particular commodity at the present time. The ask price is the minimum asking price available for a particular commodity at the present time. More simply, if you want to buy, you will pay the ask price. If you want to sell, you will receive the bid price.


The difference between the two is referred to as the “bid-ask spread”, and often is a reliable indicator of an investment’s liquidity. The smaller the bid-ask spread is, the more liquid a commodity and the less “transaction fees” an investor will incur when getting into and out of investment positions.
