This is a common way to refer to silver cast in the shape of a bar, in a specific weight and with a specific silver content.

In addition to the well-known silver bars, our range also includes bars that have been minted into a thin design and can be traded in smaller parts if desired. These types of silver bars are known as Combibars and they are becoming increasingly popular among silver buyers. In most cases, you will find that these bars are produced in lighter weights, usually 100 grams, making them extremely handy and very easy to trade. The bar is divided into smaller individual silver bars of 1 gram each, for example. Each mini siver bar is stamped and indicates both the content and weight of the silver it contains.

Unlike gold, most silver buyers choose silver bars weighing a troy ounce or more. This is mainly due to the price difference between these two precious metals. Given its relatively low trading price, silver is much more accessible than gold, which makes it more attractive to opt for heavier bars. This is also because regardless of which weight you choose, the bars premium will always include its manufacturing costs. This makes smaller bars more expensive than larger ones.
