Each of the 10 oz PAMP Suisse Silver Bars in this product listing are new items from the mint. Cast silver bars from PAMP have previously been issued in weights of 100 oz, 1 kilo, and 500 Gram silver. The bars of this weight will arrive in a plastic bag and come with an assay card. The assay card features the authentication details of the bar, such as its weight, purity, metal content, and serial number.
Cast silver bars are produced in a simple, but time-consuming manner. Once the silver is melted down it is poured into prefabricated molds that produce the shape of the bar while ensuring a specific weight. Hallmark inscriptions are stamped onto cast silver bars with an incuse strike. Just like on incuse coins, the incuse inscriptions on these silver bars are beneath the surface of the bar rather than engraved onto the surface with a slight 3D relief.
PAMP Suisse is the worlds leading bullion brand. A noted producer of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium bars, PAMP Suisse also provides coining capacity for low-mintage collections for smaller nations around the world such as the Solomon Islands.
