Wow, what a huge difference in the quality of the pour between a Britannia and Royal Canadian Mint. The RCM is nice enough, but the Britannia is just amazing.

The Britannia bar is minted/pressed not cast/poured so the characteristics of the finish will be different.
I have to say the Britannia bar does look good, and it will be my next bar purchase.

Is it a bad thing that I keep placing orders for individual items with SGB so I can get more little chocolates?

It is pretty good chocolate.

Do you guys think silver will ever go up?
Gold went up since 2009, but silver actually fell. I would not consider silver as "precious" metal.

Might be because the coin is backed by currency via legislation. Unless you worry that you need to exchange the coin to its face value, I would stick with the one with the least premium over spot.
