I Want To Buy Silver Bars
Regardless of the type of silver bar you purchase, you can rest assured that the refinery producing it uses .999 or .9999 pure silver content. Most silver bars, though not all, come with an assay card that authenticates the individual product and verifies its weight, purity, and content.

Fractional silver bars are the traditional way to invest in this well-known precious metal. For over four thousand years, silver has been a renowned store of value that was also used as a form of money. While the silver standard for money is no longer prevalent, silver bars continue to be a global standard for investors buying silver bullion.
Buying silver bars at the lowest possible premium makes them the best bet for investors simply looking for the most silver for their money. A silver bar costs less for mints and refiners to produce than smaller fabricated rounds and coins. That means savings for investors who want to stack them.
Smart consumers are also buying silver bars as an investment to hedge against inflation and protect future wealth. The goal is to buy silver at low prices, hold it as a form of savings and investment, and eventually investors will want to start selling silver bars at a high price.
Silver bars can also be part of an investment portfolio in the form of a precious metals IRA. This option is perfect for the investor who is looking to diversify their portfolio with physical precious metals. The various options available for silver bar sizes ensures that the portfolio is not too heavy with large silver Bullion or too light with small bars.
Silver bars range in size from 1-ounce all the way up to 1,000 troy ounces. The 10-ounce and 100-ounce bars are perhaps the best options as those sizes provide the best overall values. The varying sizes make it easy to store the physical bars in durable safes because they can easily be stacked on top of another reducing the space requirement. Silver bars may be the way to go if room in a safe is limited.
Most investors should steer clear of buying 1000 ounce exchange sized silver bars. For one, these bars are incredibly cumbersome to handle. They are expensive and difficult to ship. And selling 1000 ounce bars requires dealers to automatically issue a 1099B on the seller (unless the seller exchanges it into another form of silver instead of taking cash).
Perhaps most importantly, sellers of these 70+ pound silver bars will typically find dealers significantly discounting the buy-back price. Many small dealers avoid them altogether as they will not be able to readily re-sell bars that size. And larger dealers with quality control programs will buy these large bars but send any that come from outside the COMEX chain of custody to be melted and assayed. The purchase price will be discounted accordingly. Many of the exchange sized bars we buy come from investors who are unhappy with holding them and looking to swap them for smaller, more convenient and more liquid forms of silver.
1 oz silver bars for sale are popular among investors. Having multiple 1 oz bars allows investors to sell off a portion of their investory while holding on to the rest until another price opportunity arrises. These smaller bars also provide the perfect opportunity to diversify an investment portfolio that is filled with larger bars.
This is another common size for silver bars. This size is still affordable, portable, and easy to store. Entry-level investors with a limited budget are often attracted to these bars to help them get started.
The premium savings that bars offer compared to silver rounds begin with the 10 ounce size. Investors can expect to save 5 to 10 cents per ounce versus rounds, and significantly more versus government issue bullion coins such as the American Eagle bullion coin or silver coin Maple Leaf. 10 ounce bars of silver are available from a handful of manufacturers. The silver bars come individually sealed in plastic, generally in sheets of five or ten which can be separated as needed. Money Metals Exchange carries bars from the most prominent and best regarded refiners in the US including Republic Metals, Ohio Precious Metals, NTR and Sunshine Mint.
Money Metals Exchange just added kilo silver bars to our lineup as a "middle ground" option between 10 ounce and 100 ounce sizes. These bars typically offer some savings versus smaller bars while remaining small enough to easily handle and stack. Republic Metals is the current provider of our silver bars in this handy size.
100 ounce silver bars offer the absolute lowest silver premiums in our product lineup. They are the best way to buy silver as close as possible to the spot market price, while preserving portability and ease of resale or liquidity. Those purchasing 100 ounce bars will generally save 10 to 20 cents per ounce (or more) versus 1 oz silver bullion bars and rounds.
When it comes to the 100 ounce size, the "mint mark" carries a little more importance. We offer fine silver bars from Johnson Matthey, the Royal Canadian Mint (Royal Canadian Mint silver for sale), Republic Metals, and Ohio Precious Metals. Every bar is marked with the manufacturer along with its weight and purity and always fully guaranteed.
100 ounce silver bars are considered to be the standard vehicle among larger precious metal investors. Typically they can be purchased at very low premiums above silver spot prices (Spot contract), meaning you get the most silver for your money.
While we don't recommend this giant bar for most investors, we do have this silver bar available for customers who wish to store it in a COMEX depository. For those customers who want delivery on their silver bars, we recommend purchasing some of the 1, 10, and 100 ounce bars instead.

Buying silver bullion is typically most affordable when you buy silver bars. The most popular ones for sale are 1 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz, Kilo, and 100 oz sizes. They can be minted from private mints, such as the highly recognized Sunshine Mint, to government mints like the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM). Buying silver bars is a popular investment for both new and seasoned silver investors alike. Choose and buy from our silver bar inventory above.
Most silver investors turn to bars instead of coins when they are looking to acquire the most silver ounces for their money. Like silver rounds, bars rarely carry any collectible value and their price is highly dependent on the silver content within.
The primary advantage is the lower cost of silver per gram or ounce in comparison to smaller silver coins. You can buy a silver bar in large sizes of up to 100 oz, or even 5 kg (160 oz), and it would still be more affordable than a gold bullion bar, for example, because of silver's lower price.
In addition, the production costs of silver bars are lower. That results in cheaper prices per gram or ounce. Moreover, the silver market is growing due to the rising industrial demand. Thus, investing in silver bars could bring profits in the future. Finally, the market is abundant with options and a variety of sizes, the most common being 1 oz, 10 oz, and 100 oz.
These might be among the tiniest in the category, but 1 oz silver bars are some of the most famous options for silver bullion investment. You don't need a large initial investment to get involved, you can easily store and transport them, and buying and selling them can be done very easily.
If 1 oz bars are too small, yet 10 oz is a fairly big jump for you, then you might consider the 5 oz silver bars option. They might be cheaper than the 10-ounce version, but still a fantastic investment option, and a logical next step when accumulating your precious metals wealth.
The Sunshine Mint is your game if you'd like to acquire some of the most popular choices on the 5-ounce silver bars market. They are made of .999 pure silver and come with a repeating sunburst design for added security.
If you're a serious investor, the 10 oz silver bars are a great choice to enrich your portfolio. Smaller sizes might be slightly easier to sell, but 10-ounce silver bar storage is much more convenient, especially if your intention is to stock up.
SD Bullion's 10-ounce bars come in .999+ pure quality, are appropriate for IRAs, and are great for forward-thinking investors, too. Even if you have just started, investing in a few precious 10 ounce bars can greatly boost your precious metal portfolio and potentially help you secure a more promising future.
If you are looking for a more convenient way to greatly expand your investments at once, the 100 oz silver bars could be a great option. While it's true there may not be as many buyers for 100 oz bars, there's still a large demand for them.
SD Bullion's 100-ounce silver bars pride themselves on .9999 pure silver (The Royal Canadian Mint - RCM), and many .999 fine bars like Scottsdale Mint, SilverTowne, or the Sunshine Mint. In addition, these bars are a fantastic choice for long-term investing, are fairly easy to store and transport, and are eligible for IRAs.
1 Kilo Silver bars might be almost three times lighter than the 100-ounce bars, but they are still a wonderful choice for long-term investment. Our 1 Kilo silver bullion bars weigh precisely 1,000 grams of .999 pure silver.
In reality, kilogram bars are a cheaper means of investing when buying in bulk. That's because the price-per-oz of 1 kilo is often lower than purchasing 32 x 1 Tr oz bars. Plus, storing one bigger bar is easier than storing 32 individual ones.
However, there are a few things you should be aware of before you decide to purchase them. Each bar weighs close to 70 lbs, which makes them hard to handle. Their weight actually varies 10% or so. Such large silver bullion bars are difficult and expensive to ship. To top it off, they cannot be repurchased outside of LBMA vaults, without an initial melting and assaying. 041b061a72
