Before the Texas Mint launched in 2018, Texas Precious Metals produced their Classic Style 10 oz Texas Silver Bar.
These 10 oz silver bars have a purity 99.9% or better. They are packaged in a plastic case and typically shipped in sheets of 10 to avoid oxidation and scratching. Both the weight and the purity of the Texas Silver Bar are guaranteed by Texas Precious Metals. (NOTE: The design may vary slightly from bar to bar)
The obverse of the bar features the iconic geographic shape of the state of Texas, a symbol trademarked by TPM as indicated by the circled “R” mark stamped next to the image. Details regarding weight and purity are included below the image, and a line separates these specifications from the acknowledgement of Texas Precious Metals at the bottom. A shaded border frames the edges of the rectangular bar to complete the simple but powerful image. The easily recognizable and timeless Texas image – combined with the overall crisp, minimalist design – provides a desirable aesthetic combination for collectors.
On the bar’s reverse, subtle silhouettes of the state of Texas are arranged in slanted rows – roughly 50 full-size icons in total – to form a pattern that is emblematic of its Texas Silver Bar title. A small symbol of the letter “R” embedded inside an outlined star sits in the bottom right of the reverse to denote that the bar was manufactured by Regency Mint. As seen on the obverse, the reverse is offset with a uniform shaded border and lustrous finish throughout. The IRA-eligible silver bars were minted in an ISO-9000 certified facility and currently accepted by many IRA custodians.
The 10-ounce Texas Silver Bar measures 88.9 mm x 50.8 mm x 6.35 mm.
