Please note, these bars are Secondary Market items and were not received by Silver.com direct from the manufacturer. As such, nicks, scratches, and other wear is possible. You may also notice toning on the bars. This is part of the natural oxidation process of silver and will not impact the value of the bar.
For these 100 oz Silver Engelhard Bars, in particular, you can purchase a product that is no longer made. Engelhard Corporation ceased production of silver bars in the 1980s. Even though they are no longer made, Engelhard’s reputation for excellence in refining remains strong today and these bars are a great option for storing wealth.
The obverse side of these cast 100 oz Silver Bars features the only inscriptions you’ll find on its surface areas. Arranged horizontally across the bar’s surface, the engravings include the Engelhard brand name, along with the purity as “999,” a unique serial number with a 6-digit numeric code, and the weight of the bar as “100.000.”
No engravings or inscriptions are found on the bar’s reverse face. These cast bars were struck by pouring molten silver into molds to cool. The reverse surface is the one which was facing down in the mold, and the obverse surface was exposed as the bars cooled. This meant the engravings and inscriptions were struck only onto that surface during the cooling process.
Engelhard Corporation was once one of America’s greatest private refineries. Founded in 1902 by Charles W. Engelhard in Newark, New Jersey, it was purchased in 2006 by BASF for $5 billion and no longer operates under its previous name.
