Where to buy .999 silver

Post by kocdim » Wed Feb 21, 2018 10:42 am

Does anybody has information if it is possible to buy .999 silver in Cambodia? And where? Is it legal to order silver from other countries like Australia? How about Thailand?

.999

just show those 3 lines to them. they have it,but no idea of variance from spot.
unlike fine gold, it is not an investment medium here.

Much of the silver used in Cambodia comes from Thailand. If you are willing to go to Bangkok, you can get kg bags of 999 silver shot from Bangkok Assay Office. It's near the intersection at the end of Silom Road and Charoenkrung on the river side of the street.

They are about the only place regionally that has a silver marketplace, so they will both buy and sell.

Depending on how much you are buying, it may be worth hopping over there for a day.
