1/10th Ounce Silver Buffalo Rounds

March 23, 2016 0 Comments

There are many ways to invest in physical silver with the most common being the 1 ounce round or bar. However, with the rise in the price of silver a new category of product has emerged and is gaining popularity – fractional silver. These products have been in the gold market for a long time, primarily because of gold’s high premium. Even sovereign mints making fractional coins such as 1/2 ounce American Gold Eagles, 1/4 ounce Canadian Gold Maple Leafs, etc. There has yet to be a major sovereign mint product a fractional silver coin, but private mints have stepped up and are producing fractional silver rounds and their popularity is beginning to take off.


One of the most popular fractional silver denominations are 1/10th ounce silver rounds. Although they only contain 1/10th of an ounce of pure silver, their appeal is unquestioned.

On an investment level, their low price offers a great entry point for someone who is just beginning to become immersed in the silver market. On a practical level, someone who is storing silver in case of an economic collapse has a better range of options when it comes to bargaining or paying for goods.


Highland Mint has released 1/10th ounce Silver Buffalo Rounds and they have been the premier fractional silver round this year. The coin’s highlights include:

  • 1/10th oz of pure .999 silver
  • Features the iconic Buffalo design of a Native American Chief
  • Struck in the United States by the Highland Mint in Florida

The design of these rounds is historic and was first featured on the United States Buffalo Nickel, designed by James Earle Frasier. This buffalo design is considered one the most iconic images ever created by the United States Mint.

1/10th ounce Silver Buffalo Rounds come shipped from the Highland Mint in tubes of 50. Orders in lesser quantities will be placed into plastic coin flips.
