100 ounce bars of silver are among the largest sizes readily available to investors online today and are also produced by an impressive quantity of private mints and refineries. The 100 oz RCM silver bar, however, is much different than your typical 100 oz silver bar due to its quality and the mint which it is produced at.
- Contains 100 oz of .9999 fine silver.
- Minted at the Royal Canadian Mint in Canada.
- Design features the RCM logo.
- All bars come in new condition.
Most silver bars produced today are minted at privately owned refineries or mints. This is just one of the many factors separating RCM’s bars from their competition. These particular bars each have been produced by Canada’s national mint; the Royal Canadian Mint. Another distinguishing factor these bars hold is that they have been struck in .9999 fine silver as opposed to most others which contain only .999. Though the extra one-millionth percent of purity may not seem like much, it is just an indicator as to the standards the mint holds its products up to.
The design of the 100 oz RCM silver bar is simple and to the point yet aesthetically appealing. The front side of the bar features the RCM mint mark along with the bars weight and purity. Also featured on the front side of the bar is a serial number unique to the bar which has been issued by the RCM. This serial number can be verified with the Royal Canadian Mint in an effort to assure yourself of the authenticity of the metal.
The Royal Canadian Mint was first founded in the early 1900s as a way of producing Canada’s currency. In the early years, the RCM was founded and operated by the Royal Mint of England. Before the first RCM facility was founded in Ottawa, Canada’s coins were produced in the UK and then shipped across the sea. Looking for a faster way to get Canada the coins it needed, the Royal Mint created a facility in Canada.
While RCM was under the jurisdiction of the UK, ownership was eventually handed over to the Canadian government. Nowadays RCM has expanded to two facilities and is in charge of producing much more than solely Canada’s currency. Apart from bullion bars and Canadian currency, RCM also produces one of the worlds most popular bullion coins; the silver Canadian Maple Leaf and is in charge of the production of many other countries’ currencies as well.
