What is the Price of a 100 oz Silver Bar?
The price of a Silver bar (100 oz) is shown in the upper right section of this page. The price of all silver bars is calculated using three components:
- Silver spot price is the price of an ounce of pure gold available for immediate delivery or delivery ‘on the spot’. It is typically determined by the best bid and offer for gold as offered by large bullion banks trading in real time throughout the world and quoted by data providers such as Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg.
- Weight and purity of silver. Silver bars have a purity of 0.999 (purity) or 100 oz of pure silver per bar.
- Silver bar premium is the percentage adjustment that is added or deducted from the silver spot price. The premium on silver bars is determined by the costs of production, refining, fabrication, minting and the logistics of making the silver bars available for sale in the UK. The price of a Silver bar is also impacted by supply and demand and a number of bars of silver being bought.
In order to determine the price of a Silver bar, simply multiply the spot price of silver by the number of troy ounces in the Silver bar (100oz) and then add or subtract the current premium for the bar.
How are 100 oz Silver Bars Made?
Silver bars are made in three different ways. Bars have a high-quality polished finish if they have been manufactured from larger silver sheets and then pressed and stamped by a minting process.
A cast bar is produced by pouring molten silver into a mould or die which then cools. The assay mark and description are then impressed into the front of the bar. These bars have a traditional bar look to them.
An extruded silver bar is made by heating silver metal and forcing it through a rectangular space. This creates a uniform length of bar which is then cut and stamped with an assay mark.
Silver minted bars are made from silver blanks. Minting bars mean that the bars look better - allowing for special designs. It is more expensive and requires a little more time and therefore means that minted bars have higher premiums and are usually seen in smaller silver bars (1 oz and 10 oz)
How to Know Your 100 Silver Bar is a Quality Product.
The London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), headquartered in the City of London, is an international industry association for gold and silver bullion. One of its primary functions is the maintenance of the Good Delivery List (GDL) for refiners of both gold and silver.
The GDL is a set of refining standards that refiners must meet and uphold in order for their good delivery bars to be accredited by the LBMA. Good delivery bar specifications only cover large bars. For silver, this is known as the ‘1,000 oz silver bar’.
The LBMA does not maintain a list of refiners who produce 100 oz silver bars, nor does it regulate 100 oz silver bar production. However, some refiners who are accredited refiners for Good Delivery Silver Bars and have a membership of the LBMA’s Good Delivery List for silver also produce 100 oz silver bars.
Therefore, in selecting a 100 oz silver bar for investment, it is prudent to invest in a bar that has been produced by a refiner who is on the LBMA’s Good Delivery List, since these refiners are recognised and trusted in the market. This is why GoldCore only sources 100 oz bars from such refiners.
