Traditional silver shot, and now silver shavings, are typically used by bullion refiners. A less refined version of silver, shot and shavings can be used in the manufacturing of silver bullion blanks that can then be produced as silver rounds and silver bars by mints. However, you don’t have to be a small mint to have a purpose for these silver shavings. The smallest businesses or hobbyists can also use silver shavings.
All of the 100 oz SilverTowne Silver Shavings in this Silver.com listing are packaged together in weights of 100 Troy ounces inside of a protective plastic cylinder. The clear plastic cylinder houses the silver shavings and comes with two different layers of tamper-evident protection. The lid is secured with tamper-evident white tape and the entire cylinder is shrink-wrapped in clear plastic.
SilverTowne Mint certifies that all of the silver shot in this cylinder has .999 fine silver content. The exterior of the cylinder comes with a certification label from SilverTowne that identifies the weight, purity, and metal content of the shavings within.
Silver shavings are produced by “shaving” bits of silver off of a larger silver block or chunk. The result is thinner, curled shavings similar to the ones you’d find from woodworking. The benefit of these silver shavings, when compared to silver shot, come in the manufacturing process. You will find that these silver shavings melt twice as fast as silver shot, making it faster to produce a finished product.
Aside from creating silver bullion products, you can use silver shavings to create jewelry or jewelry and watch repair parts. Silver shavings can be melted down to make silver paint or silver ink. For the artisans who work with silver, you can melt down silver shavings into your next great creation.
