Silver shot is one of the simplest forms of silver you will find when you look at silver for sale. While silver coins, bars, rounds, and other silver bullion pieces have a more refined appearance, those items also come with higher premiums over the spot price of silver. If you’re purely interested in silver for its inherent value, silver shot is a great way to invest in large volumes of silver at lower prices. Now, 1 Kilo Silver Shot is available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.
- Shot ships to you inside of bags or tubes!

Most silver bullion products start out as silver shot. The difference between silver shot such as this 1 Kilo allotment of silver shot and silver coins, for example, is the process it undergoes after being formed as shot. Refiners can take silver shot and melt it down to form silver blanks for coining or use it in silver molds for producing silver bars. However, each of those additional steps adds to the premium applied to the end product because of the work involved.
Silver shot is quickly and simply formed by taking refined, molten silver and tossing it into cold water. When the molten silver hits the water it quickly reforms in small grains and BBs as it hardens and clumps together. The shot can then be used for the aforementioned purposes of producing silver bullion or even be used in producing jewelry and other silver art pieces.
You can purchase this 1 Kilo Silver Shot with a plastic bag or a tube to house all of the shot. The silver shot takes the form of small BBs and small grains, and is not in one solid clump or mass within the bag or tube.
