Many who are familiar with silver bullion bars have heard of Engelhard Silver Bullion, one of the Silver Bullion bars in the market.
The Engelhard Corporation has been around since 1902 and enjoys a distinct reputation when it comes to precious metals products like silver, gold, platinum, etc.
Charles Engelhard Sr, after emigrating to the U.S. from Hanau in 1891, founded the company which was later continued on by his son, Charles Engelhard Jr (February 15, 1917 – March 2, 1971) . Its logo of a capital letter E on a globe is a well-known logo among silver collectors, buyers and sellers as well as investors.
The same logo or the name Engelhard can be found as marks on the Engelhard silver bullion bars annd found in 1, 10 and 100-oz sizes. Approximately, the poured Engelhard 100-oz bar is 6.86 in weight and 6-1/4″ X 3-1/8″ X 1″ in dimension.
Every single Engelhard silver bullion bar is serial numbered, ensuring that every piece is unique on its own.
The weight of the bar can also be found on the bar itself marked in troy ounces. There are commercial and art bars among the various types of Engelhard silver bullion bars. Some of the 1-oz Engelhard silver bullion bars also have other obverse logos like the maple leaf and the Statue of Liberty aside from the usual E and globe logo.
The Engelhard silver bullion bars are extremely valuable since they are considered rare. Although the Engelhard Corp. manufactured .999 silver (also called three nines silver) in the 1970s, during great demand, the 1980s demand for silver bars decreased. Because of this, the last time Engelhard released the Engelhard silver bullion bars was in the late 1980s.
