Mining of silver began over 5000 years ago in Asia Minor, in modern day Turkey, providing a stable currency for blossoming Mediterranean civilizations. The discovery of the “New World” in 1492 revitalized the role of silver in modern commerce ‐ in fact, from 1500‐1800, 85% of global silver production and trade took place in Bolivia, Peru, and Mexico alone. In 1870, the United States entered the market with the discovery of the Comstock Lode in Nevada and nearly overnight, world production of silver doubled from 40 million to 80 million troy ounces. Around this time, silver “trade dollars” emerged – eventually leading to the famous “Morgan” and “Peace” dollars of the early 20th Century. Today yearly silver production averages 670+ million troy ounces. If you are interested in buying or selling silver in any of its many forms, come in to Wilshire Coin today!
Wilshire Coin also buys and sells many popular Platinum and Palladium coins and bars. Platinum and Palladium are a bullion alternative to gold and silver, allowing investors to diversify their precious metal holdings. If you want to add more “white” metals to your portfolio, we stock a wide selection in our store and online.
