The newest brand in the global precious metals industry is ramping up production and bringing more variety to market with its new silver bars. Asahi Refining has controlled former-Johnson Matthey refining facilities in North America for a year now, and is rolling out the second bar with its branding, the 1 Kilo Silver Asahi Bar, which is available right now for purchase on Silver.com.

Bar Highlights:

  • Among the first 1,000 bars refined in Salt Lake City! Serials #1-1,000! Please note we cannot take requests for specific serial numbers.
  • Ships to you in sealed plastic to protect the bar.
  • Consists of 1 Kilogram, or 32.15 troy ounces, of .999 fine silver.
  • Features the Asahi Refining logo on the obverse.
  • Customers please note: Asahi will produce additional bars from a backup Canadian facility, featuring a different mint-mark. These bars will also be released with 1-1,000 serial numbers.

Asahi Holdings is a Japanese company that has been in the precious metals business for 64 years. With its acquisition of Johnson Matthey’s three remaining refining facilities in North America, valued at $186 million, it increase the global awareness of its brand.

Each of the 1 Kilo Silver Asahi Bars available for purchase through this product listing comes from the crop of the first 1,000 bars struck at the Salt Lake City, Utah facility that Asahi acquired from its purchase of Johnson Matthey’s refining business.

On the obverse face of the bar you’ll find the only engravings on the product. The Asahi Refining logo is visible at the top, which includes the words “Asahi SLC” and “Assayers – Refiners.” Additional engravings on this face include the weight, metal content, purity and individual serial number of the bars.

Asahi took control of three facilities in total when it bought out Johnson Matthey. In addition to this Salt Lake City facility, it acquired another refinery in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, and an investment support services location in St. Catharines, Canada.

Asahi Holdings was formed in 1952 in Tokyo, Japan. The company’s original operations included the collection, recycling, and refining of precious and rare metals from waste material sources in Japan. Although Asahi quickly released 100 oz. Asahi Silver Bars last year, the global demand for silver put the squeeze on production capacity and delayed the production and release of these 1 Kilo Silver Asahi Bars.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
