This newly minted 5 oz Walking Liberty Silver Bar is a product of the Highland Mint based in Florida. Due to their high value and their low premium over spot, silver bars have become a popular favorite among collectors and investors over the past few years. Each of these bars has been minted from 5 troy ounces of .999 fine silver and has been preserved in its original uncirculated condition. The Highland Mint has engraved this information unto the front of the bar for both convenience and verification.
Apart from its weight and purity, the front design of the bar also incorporates the same Walking Liberty image that is featured on the obverse side of the Silver American Eagle Coin. This image depicts Lady Liberty walking across a field toward the rising sun. In one hand, she holds a bundle of branches while the other one stretches before her in a welcoming gesture. She is meant to embody the generosity with which the US shares its resources and opportunities.
In addition to the artistic value it could add to your collection, this silver bar was also designed with practicality in mind. The reverse side of the bar has been engraved with a deep crisscross pattern. This textured pattern provides a better grip on the bar during handling as well as more traction for the bar when it is stacked or placed in storage.
