Silver is the ideal inflation protection: it has proven itself for thousands of years and it is sought after as an industrial metal as well.
With a history dating back more than 7,000 years, silver is a precious metal whose value has been preserved across all cultures, political systems and fashions. Like gold, it has long been considered a pillar of value preservation strategies. From antiquity to the present day, the so called “white gold” has been used to make cult objects, coins, jewellery and everyday objects.
Thanks to its unique properties (high conductivity, germicidal effect), silver has also been used and continues to be used in industrial applications. Current secured silver reserves are limited to about 500,000 tons. As a result, silver supplies will run out before oil. In view of rising demand around the globe, needs can only be met for about 20 more years.
What you should note when buying silver
GOLDEN GATES offers you an experienced, reliable partner for purchasing silver. Duty-free and VAT-free storage in Switzerland guarantees maximum security. Regular purchasers will benefit from the cost average effect: with regular fixed purchases, you buy more silver when silver prices are low, and less silver when silver prices are higher – with a positive impact on the average purchase price. We offer attractive conditions and absolute transparency in terms of both storage costs and brokerage fees.
Silver serves as a long-term wealth preservation strategy. In addition, it is a sought-after industrial metal.
Glass panes are silver-plated during the production of mirrors. Lenses as well as light and heat reflectors are also based on this principle.
Because of its antibacterial properties, silver is used for, among other things, coating prostheses, for wound dressings and making ointments.
Silver is a key element for the production of the world’s most common solar cells because it is more reflective and conductive than any other metal.
Silver alloys (with copper, indium, etc.) are irreplaceable as soldering alloys for brazing solders, and as contact material and conductive material.

GOLDEN GATES Expert Tip
„Experts rarely agree, but in this case they do: we are about to enter the “decade of silver”. One reason for this is the various uses for the precious metal: silver has been processed for use in coins and jewellery for thousands of years – with rising demand. In addition, it is highly sought after by industry, where it is used, among other things, in the production of electronics, solar technology and RFID chips.
Because demand for silver has risen much more sharply than demand for gold, the current price difference – gold is about 50 times more expensive than silver – will not hold up over the long term. This is because while the entire supply of gold is available for use in coins and bars, industry uses more than half the mined quantity of silver. Over the long term, a price of USD 100 per ounce is entirely realistic.”
