These 1oz Silver Bars feature the SilverTowne Trademark prospector and his trusty burro on the front (in a perfect circle) and on the back (in the middle of a waffle pattern). The Trademark image is why some collectors know these silver ingots as "SilverTowne Donkey Bars". Silver Bullion Bars are popular with collectors and investors for their silver content, portability and ease of storage. Our SilverTowne 1oz Silver Bars contain .999 fine silver and are custom minted by SilverTowne Mint.

Silver was once the commercial currency of the world alongside gold. Changes in government attitudes have resulted in paper replacing silver as a currency. But this has not diminished the value of silver. Far from it. It is more valuable now than it ever was.
The inflation of the early 1970s prompted investors to protect their assets by investing in silver. In order to accommodate this sudden demand many small refiners began churning out .999 fine silver products such as silver bars.
Bars of silver do offer an important investment advantage: they carry a low premium over spot silver. Silver bars are also recognized around the world as a trading medium and are therefore very liquid.
Silver bars can be stored in bank vaults, which they often are, or even in your own home or office, although, for the larger bars, that is not recommended. Silver bullion bars are able to be used in an IRA account according to the IRS and can make an excellent addition to a retirement fund.
Silver has been on a steady uptrend for some years and this is due, in part, to the economic uncertainty of our times but also, significantly, to the general shortage of silver in the market place. Most silver produced is used in industry and photographic paper manufacture and only a small percentage in jewelry or silver investment. The amount of silver being mined is less also. However the investment portion is growing steadily as more and more people and businesses see the advantage of storing assets in silver.
It could be said that silver bars have emerged as a popular silver investment because they are uniform in size, easy to handle and convenient to store. But the overriding consideration is likely that silver is seen as a valuable, convenient and worth while future investment.

I first started buying from these guys through auctions on eBay. Thought I was getting a good price, that is until they brought me to their website! Great prices, great customer service. And no matter who answers questions through emails (I’ve sent many) They are always very polite and knowledgeable.
