I was wondering what pieces of silver people like and why. I am curious what are the staples and other fun/different things out there. Diversity is the spice of life as they say. I know the ASE, silver maple, austrian philharmonic, and silver buffalo rounds are popular choices. I am open to looking at bars, rounds, coins, etc. in various sizes. The panda seems neat, but everyone seems pretty proud ($$$) for a 1oz piece.

I like the design of the silver Britannias... and I'm a fan of Morgan Dollars, too.

I tend to buy bars and ASEs, but it's fun to get something different on occasion. I got a Somalian silver elephant a while ago because I didn't have one, and ADK mentioned silver Britannias, which I did not have, so I had to order one of those last night along with my standard bi-weekly items.

It's all good, in my opinion!

I primarily buy bars, too... I have an Academy hand poured and I would like to get one of the Silvertowne hand poured. They look "classic" - like they enjoy hanging out with the Morgans in my collection :)

Nice buy on the Britannia... I really like that design, but the premium stinks. I have a few.

Just bought the Star Spangled Banner Commemorative from the US Mint a few minutes ago... I wanted to pick one of those up for a while. The design just appeals to me.

I have this Coin World magazine laying on the floor near my computer and that coin is on the front. It kept reminding me that I should take the ten minutes and pick one up from the mint. Done.

Received my silver maples yesterday. =)

For for coins/rounds, I think maples, buffalos and Morgans look nice. Other than those, not a fan of rounds in general, especially those with zodiac, celebratory designs.

For bars, I like the simple look Credit Suisse. But the premium is high, so amongst the low-premium bars, the Sunshine Mint bars look best IMO, but wish they had serial numbers like the Johnson Matthey bars.
