Silver Certificate

A document entitling one to ownership of a certain, stated amount of silver. Most of the time, silver investors hold silver certificates rather than the physical silver itself in order to avoid the expense, security issues, and other difficulties associated with owning a precious metal. However, the holder of the silver certificate can take possession of the silver he/she owns upon demand.
