Silver bars for sale come in all shapes and sizes, including a variety of different types of silver bars. The most common are minted ingots, cast silver bars, and hand-poured bars. While minted ingots are visibly different from counterparts, it can be hard to tell the difference in some cases between cast silver bars and hand-poured silver bars. Nevertheless, the latter two are popular with investors looking for craftsmanship and easy-to-stack silver. Today, 100 oz Silver Eagle Cast Bars are available to you online at Silver.com.

Cast and hand-poured silver bars are produced largely in the same manner. Refined silver shot or other raw forms of silver are melted down and poured into prefabricated molds. These molds are made from heat-resistant materials and the silver is left to cool in the mold until hardened. However, that cool process can take on different forms for cast and hand-poured bars. Many cast bars cool inside of an enclosed mold with no exposed faces, while hand-poured bars are often left to cool in a mold that is not entirely enclosed.
All of the 100 oz Silver Eagle Cast Bars are available in brand-new condition and offers a rare opportunity to own a silver bar that has the highest possible silver content at .9999 fine silver.
On the obverse face of the 100 oz Silver Eagle Cast Bar is an image of the American bald eagle. The largest aerial predator in North America and a member of the sea eagle species, the bald eagle is the official emblem of the United States of America. In this design, the eagle is shown as it descends down on its prey with wings stretched out and its talons reaching down. The weight, purity, and metal content are also inscribed on this side.
The reverse field of the 100 oz Silver Eagle Cast Bars is left blank. It is often the reverse field that helps identify the differences in a cast silver bar and a hand-poured silver bar. Because hand-poured bars are not enclosed in a mold for cooling, you can often see “cooling lines” or striations from the silver as it was poured into the mold as it cools in place.
