Perth Mint 100 Ounce Silver Bars
These 100 ounce silver bullion bars are refined and minted by the Perth Mint, which is wholly-owned by the Government of Western Australia. The Perth Mint as been operating since 1899 and is one of the best known names in silver and gold bullion. The Mint also produces governmental legal tender silver koala, kookaburra and lunar coins. Perth Mint bars are recognized and accepted throughout the world.
All our Perth Mint bars are shipped directly from the Mint.
Design: The finishing is smooth and refined. The bars can be neatly stacked for efficient storage. Perth Mint bars are stamped with the Perth Mint logo and a stamp indicating weight (100 troy ounces), metal (silver) and purity (99.9%).
Starting in mid 2010 the Perth Mint started implementing serial numbers on the Perth Mint 100 ounce bars.
Please note that we cannot request for specific serial numbers or "lucky number" bars.
Questions on Certificates: It is an industry standard that Silver Bullion investment bars do not come with separate paper certificates. The mint logo, purity, weight and material is the inseparable certificate whose accuracy is, in this case, guaranteed by the Australian Government. Thus the source and reputation of the mint is the important factor to make a bar a liquid exchange medium.
Thus, for example, a separate paper "certificate" issued by an unknown or little known foundry which repeats the information shown on a bar would be redundant and meaningless. The common exception are higher premium limited edition numismatic or gift items whose certificated are used to specify than only an X number of items were produced.
Storage Relevant: Approximate size: 186mm x 80mm x 20mm. These bars can be stacked efficiently for storage.
Points computation: 1 bar = 100.00 points
