Forms of Silver Bars

Another topic we have delved into is the various forms of silver bars that exist on the market today. The most prevalent bars are referred to as "bullion", meaning an investment grade bar that is valued primarily for its silver content. Other types of bars include "Art Bars" and more collectible type bars which carry premiums above and beyond just their silver content. We also have written extensively on new vs. secondhand silver bars, and what you need to know while investing in each.

Brands of Silver Bars

Although almost all silver bullion bars contain the exact same purity and amount of physical silver, certain brands do carry premiums over other brands due to their reputation, relative scarcity, and more. We have dedicated pages to each major brand of silver bar manufacturer so our visitors can learn more about the companies that produce these bars, what sizes of bars each manufacturer produces, and the relative premiums over spot price that each brand name commands.

Sizes of Silver Bars

As mentioned earlier, there are several sizes/weights of silver bars that are widely available on the market. Common sizes include 1 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz, and 100 oz bars, all of which are weighed in troy ounces (the standard unit of weight in the industry). Besides those sizes, investors can also find 2 oz, 1 kg, and other rarer sizes of bars, although off-size bars typically command relative premiums to more widely circulated weights.

More Information

As the site has grown, we've also added more "miscellaneous" articles covering aspects such as protecting and storing your silver bullion, what happens when you perhaps want to sell in the future, buying silver with PayPal, buying silver with free shipping, and more. We plan to continue adding to the website as we come up with more topics, so make sure to check back as we grow and expand.
