What is the Price of a 1000 oz Silver Bar?
The price of a 1000 oz Silver bar 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 silver 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. Most silver bars have a purity of 0.999 (purity) or 1000 ounces of pure silver in each bar.
- Silver bar premium is the percentage adjustment that is added or deducted from the silver spot price. The cost of production, refining, fabrication, minting, and the logistics of making silver bars available for sale in the United States determine the premium on silver bars. The price of a silver bar is also affected by supply and demand, as well as the number of silver bars purchased.
The price of the bar is calculated by multiplying the spot price of silver by the quantity of troy ounces in the bar (1000oz in this case), and then you can either add or subtract the premium that is currently being paid for the bar.
How are 1000 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 mold 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 the 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)
