Investors seeking out loaf-style, cast silver bars will find suitable options from Asahi Refining. The brand that took over Johnson Matthey’s North American precious metals operations, Asahi quickly got to work producing silver bars in styles familiar to investors around the globe. Right now, 1027 oz Asahi Silver Bars are available to purchase online at JM Bullion.

Each of the 1027 oz Asahi Silver Bars available here comes with green boxes for each bar shipped out. These loaf-style silver bars have a trapezoidal shape when viewed from the edges. The markings on these bars are etched in on one edge, rather than being stamped on the obverse or reverse.
Please keep in mind that larger silver bars such as these commonly show toning as the bar’s age. Toning is the result of the natural oxidation process and will not detract from the value of the silver in the bar.
Obverse and reverse design fields on these 1027 oz Asahi Silver Bars are blank. However, if you look at one of the trapezoidal edges of the bar, you will find all of the identifying hallmarks etched in a single space. These include the Asahi logo, an Assayer’s mark, the date of production, weight, purity, and serial number for the bar.
Asahi Refining is based in Japan, but entered the North American market after its 2015 acquisition of Johnson Matthey’s precious metals operation in the region. This included sites in Canada, Utah, and Florida.
