Brand Name Silver Bars
Brand Name Silver Bars
Gainesville Coins prides itself on offering a wide array of name brand silver bars and rounds. Our rounds and bars range in size from 1 to 100 troy ounces and come from a variety of private and government refiners. In the precious metals industry, reputation and trust are indispensable. This is why many investors choose to purchase name brand silver bullion. In addition, recognizable name brands often enjoy higher liquidity on the secondary market due to their respected name and high quality.
Refiners of Silver Bars and Rounds
Gainesville Coins is proud to offer bars and rounds from some of the world’s most famous precious metal refiners. This includes well-known companies like Johnson Matthey and collectible brands that are no longer actively minted, like Engelhard. In fact, Engelhard’s signature product, the Prospector’s Round, became highly collectible during the 1980s.
Several of the brands included under the “name brand” umbrella have their headquarters in Switzerland. The small central European country is known for its mastery of all things gold, but its top refiners are also well-versed in the field of silver bullion. Companies such as PAMP Suisse, Credit Suisse, Heraeus, and Valcambi are all giants in the silver industry, and each of them calls Switzerland home.
The Sunshine Minting Co. is probably the best-known American-based silver refiner. Not only is Sunshine Minting known for the superior anti-counterfeiting technology of its silver bars, but it is also entrusted with minting the blanks (or planchets) used in the production of the american silver eagle, the official silver bullion coin of the u.s. mint.
Additionally, several government mints produce their own silver bars for private investment. Among these, the most noteworthy are Canada’s Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) and the Perth Mint from Western Australia. While these bullion items have no legal tender status, they still come with the full backing of the issuing government for their authenticity, weight, and purity. Many investors prefer government-issued silver bullion for this added security, although the same principle applies to all name brand rounds and bars.
Among some of the examples of silver bars that are offered at Gainesville Coins are the Johnson Matthey Silver Bar, the Engelhard Silver Bar, the Perth Mint Lunar Series, and the Royal Canadian Mint silver maple leafs.
Due to the reputation of the manufacturers, these bars and rounds are in high demand. Many of these private refiners have expanded their original goal of stacking low premium silver to include tracking down examples of discontinued vintage bars from Engelhard and Johnson Matthey.
