Unique .999 Fine Silver Bars, Hand-Poured by SilverTowne Craftsmen

Hand-Poured Silver

Silver bars, or ingots, are popular with collectors and investors for their silver content, portability and ease of storage. This style of silver bar is often referred to as an art bar due to the fact that there is usually a creative design formed into the surface of the bar. But there is another style of silver bar that not as many people are aware of, commonly referred to as a loaf-style bar.

SilverTowne 50oz Poured Silver BarWhat makes hand-poured (loaf-style) silver bars unique is that no two bars are alike. They are made the old-fashioned way by pouring liquid silver into molds to form the bars into the desired shape. This process allows pockmarks, ripples, bubbles and other "imperfections" to form on the surface of the bars. But these markings aren’t as much imperfections as they are beauty marks! The unique surfaces of the poured bars are what give them that vintage - almost rustic - look and feel. There are many collectors who prefer the classic look of the poured bars over the more refined silver art bars, as a sort of nod to the old-school silver bullion production process – the way silver bars were made before modern day technological advances in production methods.

SilverTowne 5oz Poured Silver BarJust like the creative designs featured on many silver ingots make them fun to collect, the unique old-fashioned style of a poured silver bar makes each one a work of art that many collectors are proud to own. After not producing the poured bars for a while, the SilverTowne Mint began offering this classic-style bar again in the spring of 2012. SilverTowne Poured Silver Bars each contain .999 fine silver, and SilverTowne craftsmen take great pride in making each bar unique. Available in 5oz, 10oz, 50oz and 100oz sizes, there is a poured bar for every budget. If you don’t own any hand-poured silver bars, do yourself – and your collection – a favor and pick some up today!
