    Exploring 1 oz Silver Bar Options at JM Bullion

    The single-most-popular weight in silver bars available online today is the 1 oz option. As you shop the silver for sale at JM Bullion or directly from a refiner, you’ll find a variety of design options and styles available in 1 oz silver bars. From cast silver to minted ingots and hand-poured bars, 1 oz silver is incredibly popular. Learn a little bit about the 1 oz silver bars you can typically find available from JM Bullion.

    Common Types of 1 oz Silver Bars

    As with many other weights of silver bars, you’ll find 1 oz silver bars available to purchase in various styles. The most common type of 1 oz silver bar is the minted ingot. These products are highly refined and created by stamping out precisely shaped bars from a larger cast bar of .999 pure silver. The product is then stamped in a computer-controlled press for intricate designs.

    Traditional cast silver bars are relatively rare in the 1 oz weight. The reason for this is a lack of interest in that type of simple product in this weight. Cast silver bars are typically produced in larger weights for those investors who like to make bulk purchases of precious metals. However, there is still a rustic option to oppose the minted ingot. Hand-poured bars are popular in the 1 oz weight. There is little difference between a cast bar and hand-poured silver bars.

    A hand-poured silver bar is first melted and then poured into a prefabricated mold by humans in control of the melting vat. Those bars, in many cases, are then hand-stamped with a design during the cool process. One of the unique features of many hand-poured silver bars is the varied appearance of the finished product. Hand-poured and hand-stamped bars can be purposely off-struck with each design to create a unique visual appearance for each bar, even within a collection where the specific design is the same.

    1 oz Silver Bars Offered Continuously

    There are silver bars that are continuously produced and sold by refineries and mints. These bars come with designs that are either simply the logo of the company refining the silver or feature more elegant designs that the refinery experiences such demand for that it is continuously offered. Examples of regularly produced 1 oz silver bars include the following:

    • SilverTowne Prospector: SilverTowne is one of America’s oldest private refiners of silver and gold. Its logo is the popular Prospector. This hopeful individual is always depicted with pick-ax in hand as he leads his donkey to the next silver mine he hopes can make him rich. The Prospector logo was originally struck horizontally on the obverse taking up the entire surface area, but is now struck within a circular logo space at the vertical top of the bar and followed by the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar.
    • Sunshine Minting Silver: Sunshine Minting is one of America’s busiest refineries and mints. In addition to producing silver rounds and blanks for bullion coin production, it also offers silver bars with its mint logo. An American bald eagle soars into view with a burst of sun rays behind it in the Sunshine design, which features prominently on the obverse of its silver bars.
    • Asahi Silver: Asahi Refining is a new player in the North American market as of 2015. The company bought the facilities of Johnson-Matthey when it exited the precious metals industry in late 2014. Facing a silver shortage early on, Asahi produces 1 oz silver bars regularly now that feature its mint logo and the identifying markers.
    • Perth Mint Silver: Perth Mint offers gold and silver bars, all with the mint logo on one side and the famous marsupial that dominates the continent, the kangaroo. Perth Mint silver bars have the swan logo at the top of the obverse and a repeating design element on the reverse side of the bar that depicts a jumping kangaroo.
    • Geiger Silver: The 1 oz Geiger Square silver bar is a new option from Geiger as it expands its options for investors. The bar features the famed Schloss Guldengossa castle which Geiger uses as its headquarters. This design is captured on the obverse, with a repeating LEV rhombus on the reverse.

    Unique 1 oz Silver Bars

    Over time, refineries and mints will come up with unique designs that are not typically reproduced on a large scale or over a long period of time. One such example is the Monarch Egyptian Relic Silver Bar. The bars are designed to look slightly different from one another as a result of Monarch’s hand-poured processes. The design elements reflect the appearance of Egyptian hieroglyphs. Another example, the recently released Pyromet Silver Card offers a 1 oz silver bar that is extremely thin.

    Another example of a distinctly unique 1 oz silver bar is the Monarch Building Block. These bars are shaped like the popular children’s stacking blocks with eight raised nubs on one side and eight sunken ones on the other. You can purchase these bars individually are in a 12-piece set. This type of silver bar is the epitome of stackable, easily-stored silver!

    Limited-Issue 1 oz Silver Bars

    Although rare, there are 1 oz silver bars offered from some mints that have limited-time production runs similar to those of dated bullion coins. The most popular in this range is the PAMP Suisse Lunar Silver Bar collection. Each bar released in this series features an animal from the 12-year cycle of the Chinese lunar calendar, or Zodiac. The animal designs are available only during the year of their appearance on the Zodiac, with production ending when the calendar ticks over to a different year.
