Hi!

Our local place has closed so I've got to use a internet store.

So where do you like to buy silver sheet, 1/2 round and etc?

Thank you!

John,
I think the best place to purchase silver online is Rio Grande in New Mexico. I know that they own the company that makes the silver and it seems to me that they have about the best pricing.

All my best ..... Danny

I belong to a club that gets the 500 oz price from thunderbird as long as we buy a minimum of $100. Better prices than most anywhere I've found so far. Rio Grande is one of the highest of the 3 we have here locally... but they always have stock, others are sometimes sold out.

Danny, since Berkshire-Hathaway bought Rio, I think they may no longer own the silver business, not sure.

Have in the past also bought from Monsterslayer.com in Farmington, NM and from Santa Fe Jewelers Supply and Indian Jewelers Supply.  all of the above have an online presence, just a matter of checking around for best price.

What Club are you talking about that gets the 500 oz pricing?

I check all those for daily prices and go with the best deal. Sometimes Thunderbird has 10% off sales.

TP. If I told you.... hehehe.

Hula, it's hard to beat their occasional "best prices" 2 day sales. Everything in the store is sold at the best price, no matter how much you buy. Only drawback is if you don't live near one of their stores.  Fortunately, I do. That's when we stock up depending on what we can afford. I drive them crazy buying their dirty scrap silver.
