Engelhard silver products are highly collectable and typically command a significant premium about the melt value. Unfortunately, there isn’t a great deal of information available on the Engelhard silver products. Engelhard stopped production of silver bars and rounds in the late 1980’s. This guide provides a compilation of the known information about the one troy ounce silver Engelhard bars (or ingots). The weights and dimensions are from my own measurements. The mintage numbers are from a previous catalog on silver art bars. This guide is not all inclusive on the subject and I am aware of at least one more type of bar that I hope to add to this guide. I am always looking for additional factual information on Engelhard products. Please contact me thru the eBay message system if you have information to share.
