Engelhard silver bars were once one of the more prominent silver bars in the precious metals industry.

When you buy silver bars online, you will most commonly find two different types: cast bars and minted ingots. Cast silver bars represent the oldest refining traditions in human history. For thousands of years, gold and silver bars were produced by simply melting down the metal and pouring it into preformed molds to create a bar in a loaf shape.
Minted ingots represent the influence of modern technology. Minted ingots have computer-engraved design elements with a more refined visual appeal. In either case, the weight and purity of the metal content in the bar offer the real value in any product.
In this product listing, the obverse and reverse designs will vary based on the specific bar you receive in the 5 oz Silver Engelhard Bar range. These could include cast silver bars that have design elements only on the obverse that are stamped into the surface of the bar. Most cast silver bars have the company name with the weight, purity, and metal content. Some also have a serial number.
When it comes to minted ingots, you are most likely to find the same markings engraved onto the surface of the bar rather than stamped into it. Most minted ingots from Engelhard come with a serial number. Some bars may be a loaf style with the engravings/markings featured horizontally across the width of the bar, while others will have the markings stamped or engraved down the vertical length of the bar.
These 5 oz Silver Engelhard Bars are secondary market items that will come in varying conditions. We cannot guarantee the condition of the specific bar you receive or the specific designs of the bar you receive When buying multiples, please keep in mind you could receive matching bars.
Each bar will ship inside of a cardboard shipping box and may have basic packing materials around it. Secondary markets tend to show some level of wear and tear or flaws. These can range from minor issues to heavier signs of wear and tear.
