When you are looking to buy silver in bulk, a 1 kilo silver bar is what you need. You probably already figured out that “kilo” is slang or shorthand for kilogram, as each 1 kilo silver bar contains a kilogram of silver. For Americans, that's about 2.2 pounds of silver!
We provide a wide variety of 1 kilo silver bars from various mints and refineries. They come in two general categories: minted bars or cast bars.
Minted silver bars look far more refined with elaborate designs and a smoother finish to them. Cast bars, sometimes called poured bars, are less concerned about looks. They have a more rough and uneven appearance, resulting in each bar being rather unique. The cast bars are stamped during cooling with important information such as their weight and purity.
While the price of silver is typically pegged to a troy ounce, a 1 kg bar is a good way to store (or carry around) a lot of value. A 1 kilo silver bar is 32.15 troy ounces, so you can do the math. These hefty bars are a great choice for stacking silver and bartering in large values. They're easy to store, and while they certainly have a bit of weight to them, even a small child could easily lug one or two around without any problems.
A 1 kilo silver bar isn't the largest silver bar you can get. In theory, there isn't really a set limit on the size a silver bar could be (aside from the silver on hand), but the next largest common size is an 100 oz bar.
When buying and dealing in silver, it is often a good practice to hold a variety of bar and round sizes. This makes it easier to barter, since more precise measurements are able to be traded. Variety is also helpful when trying to maximize the amount of silver you are getting for your budget since you can always put any excess into smaller bars and rounds until you've spent your full allotment.
Like any precious metal bullion, prices will fluctuate based on the price of the metal. A 1 kilo silver bar is worth its weight in silver. For all BullionMax products in stock, you can see the current price on the product page, and we keep an updated price of silver visible at the top of our website for convenience. When purchasing a 1 kilo silver bar, there will be a premium above the spot price of silver which can vary by product and mint for a variety of reasons. However, 1 kilo silver bars commonly have some of the lowest premiums making them an ideal investment for people strictly interested in the value of the metal content.
