Silver Bar features:

  • Made of .999 silver bullion also known as ‘fine silver’.
  • Offer a lower price per ounce than government minted silver coins.
  • Available for fully insured delivery to door or for a non-bank Silver Storage Account.
  • Typically devoid of government legal tender face values.
  • Efficient for stacking and private silver bullion storage.
  • A tangible and convenient form of privately hidden silver wealth.
  • A safe haven asset you can fully own, unencumbered, outside of the financial system.
  • Non-digital, private, hack-proof, tough to track, proven store of wealth.
  • Many silver bar hallmarks are also eligible as either Silver IRA or Silver RSP investments.


Often buying silver bullion bars at the lowest price per ounce possible is a goal of silver bullion bar buyers. Another important factor for silver bullion bar buyers is acquiring silver bars with highly respected hallmarks or brand names. 

If buying the most ounces of silver bullion bars for your capital is your main goal, consider perhaps buying larger silver bars made by respected private silver mints. As well and in general, the larger a silver bar’s fabrication is, the lower the premium or price per ounce over the silver spot price an investor or silver dealer will have to pay for it. If you budget is limited, small 5 oz silver bars are perhaps some of the least expensive precious monetary metals an investor can buy and own physically.

If you believe the best silver bar to own is perhaps the most highly recognizable silver bar in terms of general brand recognition, than perhaps buying Royal Canadian Mint silver bars is your best option. The Royal Canadian Mint strikes all silver bar sizes ranging from small RCM 10 oz Silver Bars to large low premium silver products like the RCM 100 oz Silver Bars.

Why buy Silver Bullion Bars?

Since the beginning of the 21st Century, there has been a general increase in silver prices in virtually all currencies as well as record amounts of individuals buying silver bullion bars.

The onset of 2008 Financial Crisis helped further spur the trend of online silver dealers selling modern silver bullion coins and silver bullion bars to the investing public.

It has indeed become quite common for investors to buy silver bars in order to better diversify risks to their wealth and investment portfolios.

Silver Bar Prices

Virtually all .999 silver bar prices are dictated by the world’s fluctuating spot silver price. Silver bar premiums have and can escalate well above the silver spot price in times of financial market turmoil (e.g. 2008 Financial Crisis silver bullion shortages).

Typically the selling price of silver bars (often referred to as the ask price of a silver bar or what a silver dealer is selling the silver bar at) hovers a few percentage points above the live spot price of silver.

Generally the silver buying price or bid price of a silver bar (what silver dealers are buying the silver bar at) hovers at or just below the fluctuating silver spot price.
