These 10 oz Silver Engelhard Poured Bars are a great alternative to purchasing brand-new products. As of 2006, Engelhard is no longer in the business of refining and producing bullion precious metals. However, many of the company’s signature silver bullion bars are still available in the market as second-hand products. This often means the premium over the spot price of silver is lower, making 10 oz Silver Engelhard Poured Bars an ideal starting point for new investors or a savvy addition for seasoned investors.
All 10 oz Silver Engelhard Poured Bars in this listing come to you with protective plastic sleeves at the time of shipping. These products are labeled “wide” because of the horizontal orientation of the inscriptions rather than the more common vertical alignment. The term wide is used to describe products such as these because the inscriptions are stretched out across the wider surface of the bar rather than stacked vertically down the design field.
On the obverse of these Silver Engelhard Poured Bars, you’ll find the only inscriptions offered on the product. Along the top of the field is the purity, metal content, and weight of the product as “999+, Fine Silver 10 Tr. Oz.” Below that is an inscription of “Engelhard” inside of an elongated hexagon shape. The bottom of the design field has a serial number unique to the bar and listed in a one-letter, six-number code.
Silver poured bars such as these 10 oz Engelhard Wide Bars are produced through simple methods, allowing for lower premiums from the outset. Once the silver is melted it is poured directly into a prefabricated mold where it is allowed to cool until the metal hardens again in its new shape.
Engelhard was founded in 1902 by Charles W. Engelhard. Following the company’s formation of the American Platinum Works in 1903 it became a leader in the smelting and refining of platinum, eventually developing the first-ever catalytic converter to clean up the emissions from automobile engines.
