Some Interesting Facts on Silver and Silver Rates in Patna vs Other Cities

These are some of the facts on what impacts silver rates:

Increasing Demand: The supply of silver is limited in India. With its demand rapidly increasing in the past 25 years, there is a shortage in its supply. Consequently, the rates of silver have risen across the country, including in Patna.

Price of Oil and Gold: The price of gold affects the price of silver. Moreover, silver mining is a high-energy consumption process. So, volatility in the crude oil sector affects the rates of silver.

Gadgets and Technology: There is no alternative for silver in microchips and processors. Despite the small quantity of silver used, there are microchips and processors in every smartphone, and the demand for smartphones in India is high. As a result, there is a demand for high quantities of silver, causing an increase in prices due to its irreplaceability.

Inflation: As inflation rises, people's purchasing capacity will reduce. The expenditure will rise, lowering the number of people buying silver. Many people buy silver as it serves as a hedge against inflation.

Paper Silver vs Physical Silver

Paper Silver: Paper silver comprises securities and derivatives spanning synthetic, unallocated and fractionally-backed claims that do not offer ownership of any real physical silver. It provides exposure to the silver price, not to physical silver. The forms in which it is available are silver futures, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), silver mining stocks, OTC silver derivatives and more.

Physical silver: Physical silver, on the other hand, is real and tangible. It is available in the form of silver bars, silver coins and silver bullion jewellery. While paper silver does not require any storage, investment in silver coins and silver bars demands secure storage.

How is the Purity of Silver Evaluated in Patna

Before investing in silver, consider the purity of the metal you are buying. The purity of silver is usually referred to as the millesimal fineness.

The purest form of silver measures .999. When you invest in silver, you will see options for Britannia silver and Sterling silver. These hallmarks refer to the metal's purity and can be seen stamped on the metal. Britannia silver measures 95.8, while Sterling silver measures 92.5 on the millesimal fineness scale, making them slightly less pure than fine silver.
