Among the largest weights you’ll find when you’re searching for silver bars for sale online are 50 oz silver bars. Although 1 Kilogram bars are popular choices with investors and regularly issued by various mints and refineries, the 32.15 Troy oz weight makes them significantly smaller than the 50 silver bar. As you move up the weight scale shopping for silver bars, the price per Troy ounce you pay for silver tends to become more reasonable. For this reason, many investors prefer to purchase larger silver bars such as 50 oz silver bars. The following are some examples of popular 50 oz bars in the JM Bullion catalog.
Simple, poured bars are a popular choice when it comes to silver of this particular weight. A 50 oz silver bar is a sizeable product, and most mints opt to product simple poured bars. The silver included in the bar is melted and then poured into a prefabricated mold that ensures the proper weight and metallic content for the finished product. One example of this production process is the 50 oz SilverTowne Poured Silver Bar. Most bars at this weight have extremely simplistic engravings that denote only the mint of origin, weight, purity, and metal content.
The SilverTowne Poured Silver Bar has all engravings arranged horizontally across the bar’s primary surface. The SilverTowne logo is located in the center, with the weight in the lower left and the purity and metal content in the lower right. The reverse side of the bars is left blank on purpose.
One twist on standard poured bars are those which are hand-poured. The general process is the same when it comes to producing the bars. Silver is first melted and then poured into a mold. In the case of hand-poured bars, an individual employee will control the process of pouring the silver into the molds. Additionally, the engravings featured on these types of 50 oz silver bars are hand stamped. The goal here is to create a silver bar that is unique compared to other cast silver bars, while also creating a product lineup in which no two individual 50 oz silver bars are exactly the same in terms of design.
A great example of this is the 50 oz Monarch Precious Metals Hand Poured Stacker Bar. Each bar is refined within a mold that has precise, flat edges that allow you to stack your 50 oz silver bars. However, like other poured silver bars, you’ll find engravings only on one side of the bar. While the Monarch Precious Metals logo is more ornate, engravings still include only the logo, weight, purity, and metal content of the bar.
