Monarch Precious Metals is one of the newest private minting facilities in the United States, having recently opened at the onset of the Great Recession. The refinery may have opened to answer the call for more silver and gold coins, bars, and other products during those rough economic times, but it continues to successfully operate today. Right now, the 50 oz Monarch Hand Poured Stacker Silver Bar is available for purchase on JM Bullion.
- All-new stacker bar design from Monarch Precious Metals!
- Contains 50 troy oz of .999 pure silver.
- Obverse bears the only engravings on the bar.
- Matte, rough finish on both faces of the bar.
- Stackable for easier storage than traditional loaf designs.
- Eligible for self-direct Precious Metal IRAs.
What sets Monarch Precious Metals apart from the competition is not the design of its bars, necessarily, but the approach it takes to striking them. While most mints and refineries use minted ingots and computerized engraving to speed up production, Monarch Precious Metals prefers a traditional approach.
All of its silver and gold bars are produced using hand-poured techniques, and the engravings on the bar are stamped by hand to give each one a rustic, traditional appearance. While the loaf was popular for years, Monarch is now shifting its focus to a new bar mold that is flat and stackable for easier storage.
The shift to stackable bar designs has not changed the hand-poured and hand-stamped approach of Monarch. Its bars remain some of the leading products in the industry with traditional finishes.
On the obverse face of the 50 oz Monarch Hand Poured Stackable Silver Bar is the engraving of the bar’s weight along the top. In the middle of the design field, the “MPM” that forms the crown in the logo of Monarch Precious Metals. Along the bottom is the engraving of its purity and metal content.
Monarch Precious Metals was founded in 2008 in Oregon’s southeastern Rogue Valley. Today, the refinery continues to produce popular gold and silver bars, now featuring the stackable design, with a minimum purity level of .999.
