Special Occasion Silver Bullion

Special Occasion Silver Bullion

♫♫ Celebrate good times, come on! Let’s celebrate! ♫♫

It does not matter the occasion, really. Celebrating can take form in a multitude of ways. From parties to quiet dinners to awards, it’s never a bad time when congratulating someone on an achievement.

But let’s think about this in a long term situation of sorts. Parties end, cakes disappear (unfortunately), and awards are eventually stashed away in the attic. So what is the perfect way to celebrate the ones you love while gifting them the ultimate gift? Silver my dears, silver.

Why silver? Simply put, silver products and precious metals overall have...read more

The Benefits of Owning 90% Silver Coinage

The Benefits of Owning 90% Silver Coinage

Predominantly in the bullion game, SilverTowne has prided itself on the number of options it has when offering one-ounce, five-ounce, ten-ounce, and more when it comes to bars and rounds. We have even offered 100-ounce bars before making our presence in the silver bullion market quite remarkable. But what some may not realize in addition to silver bars and medallions, we offer silver in a variety of other ways including, but not limited to, 90% silver coinage.

Pre-1965 coinage is loaded with history but in most cases, the market for this type of coinage is not exactly for collector types. Do not let that deter you though as 90% silver coinage, in a general sense, is...read more

Silver Bullion Edition: What Is A Stacker?

Silver Bullion Edition: What Is A Stacker?

Options: the key to securing a successful retail business. We all know that when we walk in a store or browse inventory from the comfort of our own home, if a retailer does not make available numerous options, sometimes we as a consumer society shut them down immediately. It is what it is, but we can tell you what SilverTowne isn’t: one of those retailers.

Whether you have been a loyal customer for years or have just started buying from us, we give our customers that best chance to find exactly what they are looking for. Designs, ounce differentiations, enameled, round or bar, etc. So what makes one better than the other? We love all of our products, so one of the easiest things for us to do is to distinguish...read more

The Lost Chief Engraver: Joseph Wright

The Lost Chief Engraver: Joseph Wright

Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. It has quite the ring to it, doesn’t it?

As the position holds rank as the highest staff member at the United States Mint, the title historically describes someone who is in charge of coin design and engraving at all four mints located across the United States: Philadelphia, Denver, West Point, and San Francisco. Created by Congress with the Coinage Act of 1792, the position was placed within the Department of Treasury and could only be filled with a presidential appointment

But as only 12 individuals officially have held the title since its creation (most recently a 13th was named on February 4th), there could be an argument for the very “unofficial”...read more
