The majority of silver bullion bars are of the industrial, cast variety (or melted and poured). Now, there’s nothing wrong with that! We believe big, chunky ingots of silver with their swirls and pock-marks have a certain kind of smokestack, 19th century charm to them. However, they aren’t quite as easily recognized or traded as minted silver bars with assay certificates. Good Delivery-certified Istanbul Gold Refinery (IGR) has bridged the gap for the serious silver stacker with this 100 gram silver bar which ships in tamper-resistant packaging with its own, unique assay card. (Get educated here if you’re not familiar with why assay packaging is important…)
The 100 gram weight is a good one for silver. Those 100 grams are the equivalent of 3.2 troy oz, which creates a comfortably chunky silver bar that feels good in-hand. It’s not too heavy to be affordable to nearly everyone – and not too light that it doesn’t represent significant value. Best of all, the assay packaging ensures your IGR silver bar is legit and makes secondary-market transactions vastly smoother…
All things considered, we’re delighted that IGR has released minted silver bars in assay packaging in this weight. They’re ideal for diversifying a silver stack with a weight between the common, 1 oz coin and bar size and the significantly meatier 10 oz and 100 oz bars. If you’re looking for a little variety in your silver stack, you can’t go wrong with an IGR 100 gram silver bar.
The Istanbul Gold Refinery (IGR) was the first refinery to be listed on the Istanbul Gold Exchange and is recognized by the London trade organization that oversees the world's bullion refiners, and has been a certified Good Delivery refiner for over a decade. IGR is known for recycling, selling, melting, refining and minting precious metals commodities. IGR boasts its own laboratory and analysis facilities, and is widely respected as a world-class refiner and mint. Although they aren’t a newcomer to global precious metals refining, IGR is less familiar to many Americans than the big Swiss refiners like Valcambi and PAMP Suisse. That’s mostly because their location, in the Kuyumcukent building in Istanbul, Turkey is geographically suited for fulfilling the voracious gold buyers of the wealthy Middle Eastern nations (Kuwait, Dubai, Oman, United Arab Emirates etc.) Until fairly recently it’s been unusual to find IGR gold and silver bullion for sale outside the Middle East.
Today, thanks to operational expansion and a larger-than-ever global demand for investment precious metals, IGR distributes their top-quality gold and silver bars worldwide. And when we say “top quality,” we aren’t blowing smoke! IGR is an audited operation that maintains ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and TS EN ISO/IEC 17025 accreditations. (Imagine all the paperwork that must require…)
