How valuable is 999 fine silver

Fine silver

Fine silver (Ag) means pure silver with a fine silver content of at least 99.9%.

When refining silver, fine silver granulate is produced after electrolysis, which today usually already has a purity of 99.99% Ag. In the past, a fineness of "only" 99.9% was sufficient, but since most of the silver is now processed in the high-tech industry, efforts are made to offer 999.9 fine silver.

Fine silver granulate is then used either in industry, the production of fine silver bars, silver coins, commemorative coins / medals, cutlery, for silver jewelry, or the decorative coating of everyday objects. Depending on the area of ‚Äč‚Äčapplication, the fine silver granules are then fused again with other metals to produce alloys.

In the past, silver alloys were also used for silver coins in order to increase the hardness, but fine silver is now mostly used for investment coins. The most popular Fine silver coins are the Canadian Maple Leaf, the American Eagle, the Australian silver investment coins Koala, Kookaburra, Kangaroo and Lunar, the Vienna Philharmonic and the silver investment products of the Cook Islands.
