250 Gram Silver Bars
250 gram silver bars are a popular choice for investors looking for a mid-sized bar, with a good balance between low premiums and flexibility for part-selling in the future. All of our 250g silver bars are produced by LBMA-approved refiners, including PAMP and Metalor. All options contain exactly 250 grams of 999 fine silver, and include free, fully insured delivery.
There are 2 main ways of creating precious metal bars, and the 250 gram silver bar options above include both:
Cast Bars: Casting has been used for thousands of years and is often referred to as also "molded" or "poured".
Casting is a cheaper process, and while it creates abnormalities and blemishes, these are unique to the bar, meaning no two are the same. These cosmetic imperfections have no impact on the value of a bar from an investment perspective however; 250 grams of silver being the same no matter the form it's in. As such, cast bars often make the best financial sense for an investor.
Minted Bars: Minted bars tend to carry a higher price than cast bars due to further manufacturing input required for a cleaner finish and more craftsmanship required in the embedded designs.
Generally minted bars are more visually more aesthetic to the eye, as this can also involve further manufacturing stages for polishing and cleaning, in a similar process to coin production.
