One interesting observation after the recent weeks turmoil in the bullion markets are the discrepancy between the physical and paper bullion prices. I discussed this in one of my previous posts. Prices are diverging – as paper demand is decreasing, physical demand is increasing.
The result of the increased demand for physical bullion is reduced supply, and increased bullion premiums. Silver Eagle coins are selling at a 24% premium to the silver price right now. Silver Eagles are the most common form of silver bullion. That makes them very expensive. Even though silver is selling for $23 per ounce right now, it will cost you almost $29 per ounce after the commission. A few months ago, you could buy silver for just 4%-5% over the spot price.
