5 oz Silver Bar - U.S. Assay Office

5 oz Silver Bar - U.S. Assay Office

In the late 1960s, the Defense Logistics Agency had over 165 million ounces of Silver in its stockpile. The government dumped the Silver into the open market in 1980 and 1981 to drive down Silver prices after the Hunt brothers tried to corner the market.

Bar Highlights:

  • Contains 5 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Individual bars come in protective plastic.
  • Obverse: Features the American flag and an eagle along with the weight and purity.
  • Reverse: Displays the words, “Minted From U.S. Strategic Stockpile Silver” and “Formerly Stored at U.S. Assay Office in San Francisco" (or New York).
  • Secondary Market Silver could be perfect, scruffy or somewhere in between.
