When it comes to buying silver bullion the 100 oz bar has been a worldwide favorite for decades. The four pictured above are live links so when you are ready for more information or live buy and sell pricing just click on the one that interests you most. And as you consider the options available you will find that all 100 oz silver bars are similar in the way they are made and identified. They are also similar in price because all are considered “bullion” in that they follow closely the silver “spot” market. Typical premiums paid for any given brand may change somewhat depending on availability and public demand but basically all of these popular brands are internationally recognized and traded worldwide.
Each of these 100 oz silver bars is produced by a world-class refiner – recognized for strict refining methods and industry integrity. The finishes on each bar may vary – some finishes are matte some are polished and some contain additional security features. Bars depending on the refiner may be struck or poured – this distinction is really just personal choice and has nothing to do with pricing or quality – all are a silver commodity.
Each bar is clearly marked as to weight, purity and content. And it is this consistency which allows all bullion dealers to fairly trade in these bars by posting live “buy” and “sell” prices which allows the public to personally asses the trade based on their needs.
The refiners offered are well-recognized within the professional trade. They are a clear “brand” which can be bought or sold internationally and competitively using the changing price of silver.
