Engelhard 10 oz silver bars
Over a period of a little more than ten years, Engelhard made several versions of 10-oz .999 fine (99.9% pure) silver bars. The earlier 10-oz silver bars were poured, the later versions were struck. The one shown on this page is one of Engelhard's earliest forms of its struck 10-oz silver bars.
This is the first style of Engelhard struck 10-oz .999 fine silver bars that Engelhard produced. This bar is shorter and thicker than the struck 10-oz silver bars that Engelhard was producing when it ceased making silver bars in the mid-1980s. Originally, all Engelhard 10-oz silver bars were sealed in vinyl, but rarely are they still in their protective coverings when they show up in the secondary market.
All struck silver bars, 10-oz silver bars and 100-oz silver bars, carry highly reflective finishes, which clearly exhibit silver's light reflectivity. (Silver is the most light reflective of all metals and is used in mirrors.) Further, Engelhard struck 10-oz silver bars have raised lettering, as opposed to the poured bars, which were marked via the traditional method of stamping the manufacturer's hallmark into the bars. This style Engelhard 10-oz silver bar measures 2-5/8" X 1" X 1/2".
Engelhard 10-oz silver bars are available only in the secondary market, which is not often. Investors wanting 10-oz silver bars will probably have to choose between Sunshine Minting, Wall Street Mint and A-Mark 10-oz silver bars, which are the premier 10-oz silver bars currently being produced.
