The book is designed as a guidebook, a coin catalog and a means to allow collectors to document their collections, all in one unit. 

Wieschowski said that modern collectors are increasingly collecting investment products made of silver, which has seen price increases for some coins reaching many multiples of their precious metal value. 

“There are many people who want to invest and collect at the same time and don’t have enough money for gold coins, so silver bullion is a perfect field for them,” Wieschowski said. 

The book explores 36 coin series from 18 different countries, making it a comprehensive look at the silver bullion market as of its June 2017 publication. 

Wieschowski provides extensive background information, with specifications and mintages, as well as hundreds of coin photos.
