Silver bars are a popular and affordable way to add value to your precious metal savings, IRA or 401K retirement portfolio. Throughout history, silver has been widely recognized as a standard measure of money, trade, and barter. At HT Bullion we want you to be informed about the reasons you should own silver bullion as part of a diversified portfolio.
Buying Silver Bars
Buying silver bullion is typically most affordable when you buy silver bullion bars. The most popular silver bars for sale are 1 oz, 10 oz and 100 oz sizes. Silver bars can be minted from private silver mints, such as the highly recognized Republic Metals Corporation, to government mints like the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) of Canada. Buying silver bars is a popular investment for both new and veteran silver investors. Choose and buy from our silver bullion bar listings above.
Most silver investors looking to build large positions turn to bars when they are looking to acquire the most silver ounces for their money. Like silver coins, silver bars rarely carry any collectible value and their price is highly dependent on the silver content within.
Silver Bar Sizes
Silver bars come in many sizes. Most retail silver collectors favor 1 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz, or 100 oz bars. Industrial users and large investors typically favor the 1000 oz Comex or LBMA bars. The premium over paper spot is typically the smallest when ordering bars of larger size. However, a large quantity order of smaller size bars can offset the premium.
Owning and storing 100 oz bars is one of the best ways to build up your silver investment portfolio. The larger weight makes it easier to build a large position in pure silver bars, and as 100 oz silver bars weigh just over 3 kilograms each, shipping and transportation are relatively inexpensive. Your new 100 ounce 999 fine silver bars can be transported directly to your Precious Metals IRA Depository for storage.
By owning multiple 100-ounce silver bars, a large value of wealth can be stored with fewer purchases. They are not as easy to sell as 10 ounce or 1 ounce bars, but the demand is high among those particularly interested in retirement savings. At High Ticket Bullion, we market 100 oz silver bars from top sellers and from the best mints in the world such as Johnson Matthey, Asahi, Engelhard, The Royal Canadian Mint, and more.
State Minted Silver Bars Versus Private Mints
One of the most commonly asked questions is which silver bar you should buy. In addition to the size of the bar having an impact on premium, the mint may affect a bar’s pricing slightly. The more recognizable the silver mint is to the general silver bullion buying public, the more likely you will receive top dollar silver bullion price bids when it is time to sell your silver bullion bar(s).
For example, a silver bullion bar struck and guaranteed by a government mint, such as the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM), will most often have a higher premium or price when buying, but typically will also receive a higher buyback premium when you sell your silver bar to other investors or silver bullion dealers. Similarly, a silver bar struck by a highly recognizable private silver mint may sell for a slightly higher premium than a smaller less recognizable silver mint. Buyback prices for silver bars can be found online on the corresponding product page.
Silver bars listed for sale here at HT Bullion come from highly recognizable government and private silver bar mints such as:
- Royal Canadian Mint
- Sunshine Minting Inc.
- Johnson Matthey
- Asahi Refining
- Republic Metals
Since silver bars are mostly traded for their silver content within, the difference between a highly recognizable silver mint versus a smaller, less recognizable silver mint is typically only a few cents per ounce. For most private investors, the important factor that influences the silver bars price remains the purity and the weight of the bar.
