Silver – why BullionVault gives you 4 free grams & currency for free

Try BullionVault risk-free with the 4 grams of silver we give you when you open an account. 

BullionVault enables all new users to trade silver immediately after providing just their email address and creating a username.  No further personal details are required until you decide we are right for you and you choose to fund your account to buy more silver or gold bullion.

By providing 4 free grams of silver, and 1 Dollar, 1 Euro and 1 British Pound, BullionVault gives you enough metal and cash to buy and sell a few times on our unique order board.  Once you have opened an account, click the Account tab and check your balance. Then, use the live order board to sell a gram or two of your Zurich-vaulted silver. Sell it for Dollars, then use those Dollars to buy silver in Singapore.  Next, sell your Singapore silver for Pounds Sterling and use those Pounds to buy silver in London.  By playing with your free silver and currency in this way, you’ll quickly experience how the BullionVault order board allows you to get the best price in the market now. When you do this you are buying and selling real physical silver bullion held securely within professional market vaults in those locations You can also try being the market maker by entering your own price to buy or sell and then wait to see if the market accepts your offer. 

The small amount of currency provided free will cover the commission charges incurred and enable you to trade your free silver numerous times whilst you become familiar with selling and buying on BullionVault. When you decide to fund your account you buy and sell gold in the same way.

Providing free silver and currency is the simplest way to enable new users to experience buying and selling on BullionVault for themselves.  After trying us out, and learning about our transparent low cost pricing and reading our positive customer reviews many of them go on to join the 100,000 other users who now trust BullionVault with more than $3.8 billion in bullion and cash.  

It is worth noting that in the UK gold and silver incur no sales tax (VAT) when kept within an accredited professional-market vault. However, unlike gold, silver is subject to 20% VAT if it is taken out of the vault. This is the major reason that silver coins and small silver bars sold by coin dealers are significantly more costly than silver bullion held using BullionVault.

Americans can also hold gold and silver in an IRA.  And because BullionVault is the world’s largest online bullion marketplace you can trade silver and gold 24/7 even when the main markets are closed, comparing BullionVault’s silver prices against the spot silver prices is simple and demonstrates the tight spread operated.  For more information see our buy silver online page or contact us using the details below.
