Record demand for silver in recent years hasn’t just led to an immense spike in the price and demand for anything silver bullion, it has also blocked some companies from establishing a larger footprint in the industry. Asahi Refining’s purchase of Johnson Matthey was smooth, but getting new products out the door proved tricky. The 1 oz Silver Asahi Refining Bar is now available for purchase on Silver.com.

Bar Highlights:

  • The first 1,000 bars ever struck! Serials #1-1,000! Please note we cannot take requests for specific serial numbers.
  • Ships in sealed plastic to protect the bar’s condition.
  • Consists of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver.

Asahi Refining wanted to get its own branded silver and gold bars on the market as soon as possible after its purchase of Johnson Matthey. Unfortunately, the sky-high prices and immense demand for silver led to a delay in obtaining silver to produce its bars with. After releasing 100 oz and 1 Kilogram weights, Asahi was forced to wait before striking the popular 1 oz and 10 oz weights.

Each of the 1 oz Silver Asahi Refining Bars in this product listing on Silver.com comes from the release of the first 1,000 bars from Asahi. The company owns two former Johnson Matthey facilities; one in Salt Lake City, Utah and another in Brampton, Ontario.

The obverse side has a blank finish with no engravings, and its only identifying features are the rough, matte finish on the product. Reverse designs include only the Asahi Refining logo, the bar’s purity, and an individual serial number. These are arranged vertically from top to bottom, with the serial numbers at the bottom of the bar’s reverse.

Asahi Ltd. started as a precious metal scrapper and recycling operation in Tokyo, Japan in the 1950s.. With its $162 million (USD) purchase of Johnson Matthey facilities in December 2014, the company established a global footprint in the highly active precious metals industry. As a result, Asahi now owns three facilities in total, with a support facility in St. Catharines, Canada in addition to the two refining facilities.

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.
