1 oz Silver Bars

1 oz silver bars are rectangular ingots used by governments, corporations, and individuals as a method of storing wealth. They are manufactured by a number of government-operated and privately-owned mints, and typically contain .999 fine silver. Their compact size and low production costs make them one of the most affordable silver products available today.

Investing In Silver

Various societies have utilized silver as a means of exchange for thousands of years. Although major developed nations now use paper money as their primary currency, silver is still highly valued for many reasons. Not only does it have countless industrial applications, but many investors use it as a safeguard against economic turbulence.

Since the value of precious metals typically have an inverse relationship with the value of the dollar, silver has been included in many investors' portfolios as a hedge against inflation. As a tangible asset with intrinsic value, silver is often seen as a more reliable store of wealth than fiat currency, which is essentially just a government-backed IOU.

For those investing in precious metals, 1 oz silver bars are a popular option because they are more affordable than their gold and silver counterparts. Additionally, you will not pay a large premium on silver bullion bars because they lack numismatic value (i.e. collector appeal). Rather, they are sold and traded at close to the spot price, which is based on the price for one troy ounce of silver. For more about investing in silver, follow the link herein.

IRA Eligible 1 oz Silver Bars

IRA Elligible Silver Bars

Many 1 oz silver bars are also eligible for inclusion in a precious metals IRA. Gainesville Coins offers a wide selection of 1 oz IRA-approved silver bars that spans major brands such as PAMP Suisse. However, not all silver bars (regardless of size) are approved for this kind of retirement account. To have IRA eligibility, a silver bar must be at least .999 fine and be Good Delivery accredited, or have an acceptable equivalent accreditation such as ISO 9000 or a government guarantee. Our representatives are also available to help you choose a custodian for your IRA and answer any questions you may have about opening a self-directed IRA.

Easy To Buy, Store, and Sell

The uniformity of flat, rectangular 1 oz bars makes stacking exceptionally easy. This minimizes the amount of storage space you must dedicate to your precious metal holdings. You can even store these compact, affordable silver bullion bars in home safes or safety deposit boxes. They necessarily have greater mobility than larger bars and are easy to transport at a moment's notice.

One of the most commonly traded silver bar sizes is 1 troy oz. They are almost always in high demand, making this size silver bar very liquid. Small silver bars also provide more flexibility if you decide to sell. Whereas you would have to sell an entire 100 oz silver bar at once if you choose to exchange your silver for cash, 1 oz silver bars allow you sell only a few ounces at a time. For even greater flexibility, there are also 1/2 oz silver bars, or even smaller 5 gram silver bars, but these fractional sizes often have slightly higher premiums over spot per ounce compared to the 1 oz size.
