PMBull has found 10 ounce silver bars to be a favorite amongst its visitors. Silver buyers appreciate the 10-ounce bar format available at most dealers because they offer convenience, beauty and good value, putting these bars at the top of the list in bullion buyer reviews.
Stackers choose 10 ounce bars because they are produced by virtually all of the high quality, trusted mints. They look good and feel good in your hands and are exceptionally convenient to store. Since they are packaged in clear, protective plastic at the mints from where they are produced, they remain beautiful and maintain a nice, shiny luster.
You can find good dealers for 10 Oz. bars with tips on buying silver bullion in PMBull’s guide to buying silver bullion online. In the guide, we review the best types of silver for new investors, discuss how to calculate premium over spot price and look at several silver rounds, bars and coins from top online silver dealers.
