Cast Bar Producers
When browsing through our 100 oz Silver Bars, you’ll notice that most of them look relatively similar. This is due to the fact that most of our 100 oz Silver Bars are cast silver bars. These bars represent the earliest form of silver bars made by human civilizations. Typically, the identifying marks of the bar are present on the obverse while the reverse is left blank.
Cast bars are made by putting silver shot, or ingots, into a prefabricated mold. The silver is then heated, usually using induction technology, before being allowed to cool.
Some popular 100 oz cast silver bar producers include the following:
- Asahi: Asahi acquired the gold and silver refiners of Johnson Matthey back in 2015. Since then, they’ve become a top producer of high-quality Silver Bars and rounds. Their 100 oz Silver Bars are individually wrapped and shipped. Each bar has a purity of .999 pure silver.
- Germania Mint: The Germania Mint is well-known for its cast silver bars. Each bar has a purity of .9999 pure silver and arrives in a black box from the mint.
- JBR: JBR was established in 1977 and is a top name in producing silver bullion products. Their cast silver bars display the identifying marks of the bar and a unique serial number on the obverse.
- PAMP Suisse: Another top name in the industry is PAMP Suisse. This Switzerland-based mint and refiner produces some of the top silver and gold bars on the market. Similar to JBR, these bars showcase the identifying marks of the bar along with a unique serial number on the obverse.
- Royal Canadian Mint: You’ll notice that the Royal Canadian Mint has a few 100 oz Silver Bar options. Once a branch of the Royal Mint, the Royal Canadian Mint is now one of the top names in the industry for their Maple Leaf series as well as their silver and gold bars. Like the Germania Mint, the Royal Canadian Mint uses a purity of .9999 pure silver in their bars.
- SilverTowne: One of the top private mints in America is SilverTowne. In terms of cast silver bars, they’re well-known for their line of Pony Bars which are available in several unique sizes. These bars showcase the image of a Pony Express rider on the obverse along with identifying marks of the bar.
Secondary Market Options
A secondary market silver bar is a bar that we receive from someone other than the original mint or refiner. These bars typically are from producers that are no longer in operation. Some popular producers you’ll see when browsing our 100 oz Silver Bars include the following:
- Engelhard: Founded in 1902, Engelhard quickly rose to become one of the top names in the precious metals industry. Even though they were bought out by BASF, a German chemicals company, their silver cast and minted bars are still a popular choice due to their name brand.
- Johnson Matthey: Johnson Matthey was a top name in the precious metals world from 1817 to 2015 when they sold their gold and silver refineries to Asahi Refining. Similar to Engelhard, their silver bars are still an immensely popular option due to their name brand.
Popular Minted Ingot Options
A minted ingot is a bar that starts as a silver blank, which is in the shape of a bar but with no design elements. The blank is then put into a machine that uses thousands of pounds of pressure to stamp design elements onto it.
Some popular minted ingot options are the following:
- Royal Mint: Known for its Britannia series of coinage, the Royal Mint is also a top silver bar producer. Their minted ingots also display the popular image of Britannia, in right-profile relief, holding her shield and trident. Bars are made with a purity of .999 pure silver.
- Scottsdale Mint: Established in 2008, the Scottsdale Mint has quickly become one of the top private mints in the industry. Their bars typically feature the Scottsdale Mint Lion on the obverse.
- Sunshine Minting: One of the top private mints in America is Sunshine Minting. With locations in Nevada, Idaho, and Rhode Island, they have a great presence in the United States. In terms of minted ingots, they have a line of Mercury bars that display the Roman god on the obverse with his winged cap and his staff. Notably, these bars have the innovative MintMark SI which displays the world VALID when you view it with a Sunshine decoder lens.
