Gold and silver tend to move together but as they have different supply and demand drivers, one can outperform the other at times - as demonstrated on our Market Statistics page, which shows the year-by-year historical returns for gold and silver.
It is difficult for us to recommend which metal to buy as we do not know your specific financial situation and objectives but we have found that ABC Bullion clients tend to one metal or the other:
- 63% of our clients only invest in gold
- 19% of our clients only invest in silver
- 13% invest in both and of those, the average allocation is 80% to gold and 20% to silver
