Cast silver bars are popular among those seeking out LBMA Good Delivery bars for investments. The Istanbul Gold Refinery produces Good Delivery cast bars in various weights in both gold and silver.
Previously, IGR had issued its Good Delivery cast silver bars in weights of 5 oz, 10 oz, 250 Gram, 500 Gram, and 1 Kilo (1000 Gram). The introduction of these massive 100 oz silver bars gives investors the opportunity to purchase in one bar the equivalent of more than three of its 1 Kilo silver bars. As with other cast silver bars from IGR, these bars have inscriptions stamped incuse on the obverse. Incuse strikes set the identification markers beneath the surface of the silver bar.
Obverse designs on the 100 oz Istanbul Gold Refinery Silver Bars include the IGR logo and other markers. The inscriptions are arranged horizontally across the bar, with the IGR logo on the left and the weight, metal content, and purity on the right side of the bars design field. The unique serial number assigned to the bar is found on the left field beneath the IGR logo.
Reverse fields on the 100 oz Istanbul Gold Refinery Silver Bar are blank. While this side is blank, you will notice that there are natural lines, striations, and other textures present on both sides of the bar. This is simply a result of how the silver cooled and settled during production.
These 100 oz Istanbul Gold Refinery Silver Bars are available to purchase with an included assay card. The assay card is attached within the cellophane wrap that encloses each individual bar. If you purchase multiples, you can get 8 bars in sealed tubs.
