All Silver Bars
There is no more popular product in the world right now than a silver bar. Investors and collectors alike are flocking to silver because, despite its high prices, it’s still an incredible investment vehicle that offers individuals protection against the volatility of the modern stock market. Humans have long looked to precious metals as a means of protecting individual wealth, and mints around the globe have responded in recent years with an expanding portfolio of silver bars.
Modern silver bars are more than just bland precious metal products with uninspiring designs. While there is always a pure product available for the investor that is easy to store and transport, there are also an increasing number of silver bars available that feature unique designs, offering the perfect combination between .999 purity and the creativity often reserved only for gold and silver coins.
JM Bullion is proud to offer a vast array of silver bars from mints, both private and sovereign, around the globe. It’s impossible to highlight them all in one page, but in the following sections you’ll see a little sneak peek of some of the most popular products we have in stock at the moment, broken down by the popular mints responsible for the refining of each product.
Originally formed in Tokyo, Japan in 1952, Asahi Refining Ltd. Remains a Japanese-based business that had previously focused more intently on the collection and refinement of recycled precious metals. As of December 2014 though, the company rapidly expanded its international brand awareness with the high-profile purchase of Johnson Matthey’s more than 150-year-old refining operation. All three of Johnson Matthey’s remaining gold and silver refining operations were purchased by Asahi, which has slowly begun refining silver bars in a variety of sizes. Among those available from JM Bullion are the following:
- 1 oz Asahi Silver Bar: On the reverse face of the 1 oz Asahi Silver Bar you’ll find the Asahi Refining logo at the top. All engravings on this face are arranged vertically from the top to bottom. Asahi’s logo is an oval, with the words “Asahi SLC” around the outer rim of the oval and the bar’s weight in the center as “999.”
- 10 oz Asahi Silver Bar: On the reverse you’ll find the Asahi Refining logo at the top of the bar, complete with the bar’s purity in the center of the logo. At the bottom of the bar is the individual serial number that identifies this bar as one of the first 1,000 produced in this weight range by Asahi.
- 1 Kilo Asahi Silver Bar: On the obverse side of these bars you’ll find the only engravings used by Asahi. The refinery’s logo is featured at the top of the bar, with markings including the weight, purity, and metal content along the bottom of the design field.
- 100 oz Asahi Silver Bar: The obverse face of these 100 oz Asahi Silver Bars you’ll find the stamp of the new refiner at the top. Inside an oval at the top of the bar are the words “Assayers, Refiners,” and the name of the new company encircles that as “Asahi SLC.” The only other engravings featured on these bars include the weight, purity as “999,” and the assayer’s mark in the bottom corner.
One of the many private mints operating in the United States, Atlantis Mint is among just a handful of global mints to produce truly unique, one-of-a-kind products. All of Atlantis Mint’s silver bars are hand-poured, and the refiners have a history of using unique molds to create finished products that take on shapes other than the traditional rectangular or loaf found in many other silver bars. A sampling of their popular products include the following:
- 5 Gram Skull & Crossbones Silver Bar: On the obverse face of the bar are the only engravings you’ll find on this 5 Gram Atlantis Mint Silver Bar. The markings are simple and hand stamped, reading only “5G 999” and featuring the skull-and-crossbones design below it.
- ½ oz Alien Skull Silver Bar: Each ½ oz Atlantis Hand Poured Silver Alien Skull has been poured with stunning skill and artistry. Customers will note the alien visage and the shape of this eye-catching piece of silver bullion.
- 1 oz Skull Silver Bar: On the obverse face of the 1 oz Atlantis Mint Hand Poured Silver Skull Bar you’ll find the facial bones of the average human skull, including the open nasal cavity, eye sockets, and the eerie smile of a skull with no flesh covering it up. There are no written engravings on this face of the bar. Flip this hand-poured bar over and you’ll notice a flat surface with no design sets. There are only engravings on this side of the 1 oz Atlantis Mint Hand Poured Silver Skull Bar. These include the weight and purity of the bar.
America’s newest private minting facility now also holds the title of the largest private minting operation in the United States. Elemetal Mint serves as the combination of Ohio Precious Metals, NTR Metals, and Provident Metals. OPM, as of July 2015, has taken on the Elemetal Mint brand and continues to strike impressive bars. Its all-new lineup of silver bars is turning heads, especially some of its Snap Bullion brands. Here are some of the more impressive:
- 2 oz Elemetal Snap Silver Bar: The new 2 oz Elemetal Mint Snap Silver Bar is similar to combibars from other global manufacturers, but has its own brand as Snap Bullion. Each of these bars contains a total of 2 oz of silver that can be split into four individual bars, with each containing ½ oz of .999 pure silver. The technology behind Snap Bullion ensures that when the bars are divided there is no loss of precious metal materials.
- 1 Kilo Elemetal Silver Bar: The Elemetal Mint logo on the obverse face resembles the infinity logo, which is created through the fusion of the letters “E” and “M” which come from the first letter of each name. The bars are struck with sharp edge and a rectangular shape, which make them the perfect addition to your IRA as they can be easily stacked and stored.
