The Physical Silver Shortage, such as 1oz .999 Silver Rounds (pictured) continues into September.  Delivery dates are being delayed and there have been some premiums increases. The situation is somewhat fluid, with supply being rationed out. If interested in purchasing physical silver, we encouraged you to directly contact San Diego Coin (858)569-5222  or  La Jolla Coin (858) 459-2228 for up to the minute pricing and availability.

Physical Silver in Short Supply. Here’s why. On July 8th of this month (July) Silver hit $15.00 per troy ounce, down from $15.65 at the beginning of the month.

Pure Gold Swiss PAMP Bars


Pure Gold Swiss PAMP Bars are a very economical and convenient way to own physical gold. The 1 troy ounce weight (pictured above) is by far the most popular size in the market. Each bar weighs exactly 31.10 troy grams, which is 1oz. The fineness of the gold is pure, .9999/1000. Pure gold has a warm, bright yellow/orange color, as opposed to the alloyed products which exhibit a bit more of a coppery-yellow.

2015 Silver Kookaburra Coins are here!


The 2015 1oz Silver Kookaburra Coins are here! These gorgeous one ounce .999 fine silver coins are freshly minted and just arrived from Australia!! They feature a new design, as the Perth Mint in Australia changes the design each year. This year’s design (which is the same as 1990, more on that below) features on the obverse a single Kookaburra bird perched on a tree stump facing right. FYI- the Kookaburra is NOT Australia’s National Bird, that would be the Emu (which is rather unsightly and most likely not coin worthy!). The reverse of the coin, as always, features the profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, crowned and facing to the right.
