Used to use APMEX. I liked it a lot.

I used to use APMEX to buy my bullion. Eventually I decided to save on the shipping costs, so I just go to a local coin dealer these days.

Sales tax is almost 10% in

Sales tax is almost 10% in quite a few states. Depending on your state, be sure to keep that in mind. No worries in say Wyoming...but Tenn, California, Arizona, Louisiana, Washington, New York, Oklahoma , Illinois, Arkansas and Alabama are all 8-10%.

No sales tax on gold silver in WA

I live in Vancouver Wa and we have a great coin shop liberty coin and currency. It is considered an investment and you do not pay any sales tax on the purchase. If so, I would only buy across the river in Portland OR.

Local shops are great if you have them.

I use

http://www.providentmetals.com/

Always satisfied and good variety.
Excellent Website.

Ron brought the Liberty movement together, Rand is expanding the crap out of it! :)

I'd recommend...using

I'd recommend...

using www.comparesilverprices.com. I like Apmex, Provident metals, and JM Bullion. Liberty is also good....though limited selection. Same with JM Bullion. Apmex will have the biggest selection.

Having bought a little of everything, I highly recommend the semi-numismatic coins...mostly ones that can be purchased for nearly the same as Silver American Eagles. I was buying the cougar/moose from the Canadian Wildlife series, Austrialian Koala's, Kookaburras, etc...for $3-$4 over spot last year. Many of these are now going for $30-$40...even after the beatdown in spot. The premium's are strong regardless of spot price. I recommend you watch this 5 part video series on semi-numismatics...

The semi-nu's are great for holding value. for a SHTF situation, you also want to have some 90% junk silver..preferably old dimes.

As far as silver maples/eagles...I don't even buy these any more. If i'm already paying $3-$4 over spot for them, why not buy some cool semi-numismatics for the same or a dollar or so more.

Here's a good deal over on Apmex ...

http://www.apmex.com/product/75425/2013-1-oz-silver-somalian...

Looks like they are now sold out, but $3.99 over spot is a better buy than spending the same for a silver eagle.

These kooks with the dragon privy were selling for $4 over spot last year...

http://www.apmex.com/product/69797/2012-1-oz-silver-australi...

would you rather have bought 500 of those for $4 over spot in 2012 or 500 silver eagles for $3 over spot? :)

10-100oz Bars!?

Depending on your budget, after collecting a pile of "small change", you might want to switch over to buying some bars. Ultra low premiums, easy to store, and they make good door stops.

Better late...

What is the difference

Between silver and silver bullion?

"Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity and a blind desire for safety and security." - Dr. Ron Paul

Not sure :) Both are silver.

Don't think there is much, if any. Maybe just the form? A real silver plate is silver, but I don't think that is bullion. Coins and silver rounds are silver (bullion). When you find out for certain, you let me know.

I trust

Someone here on the DP has the knowledge to enlighten us! Thanks for the site!
