I have been reading through the forums at Kitco and browsing the available stock at both Kitco and Apmex. I think I'm going go with 5oz silver bars. What is the difference in the various bars? I see "Year of the Dragon", "Sunshine Minting", "APMEX", etc. It appears that several are the same spot price, but occasionally vary by the premium. Am I just choosing preference at this point, you think, or is there some noticeable difference I'm overlooking (all are rated at .999 fine)?
I'm checking out a local coin show this weekend to see if they have anything like this available. If not, I'm a coin collector, so it won't be a total loss.
