- Very good buyDominicon 6/16/14
OverallDon't be fooled by the picture this is a small bar. Tho it is very nice and inexpensive. Very good condition, it can't be perfect. Mine has one scratch on the face up side other than that very nice bar.
- Great bar!Gregoryon 5/30/14
OverallThis bar is beautiful! The designs on the front, and especially the back, are very well done. I really like that I can order air-tites for the bars, also. Saves me from having to buy them elsewhere and pay extra shipping. This is a great, inexpensive way to add to my collection.
- new regularsKevon 3/7/14
OverallEvery time I buy silver, I usually buy the same bars. I was curious for this style with a very low premium, and now they are my favorite. Will be buying these much more often.
- not bad...Tyleron 2/28/14
OverallNot great but not bad either... Had some scuffs and scratches but overall it wasn't bad...
- Great ProductMichaelon 2/2/14
OverallThese bars are in perfect condition. Very nice and the fastest shipping I have ever seen.
- Great 1 oz. BarsKyleon 1/21/14
OverallThese one troy ounce bars are very good quality. I ordered 3 of these and they came in a padded envelope and inside each bar was in its own plastic bag. I just ordered 5 more and look forward to getting more in the future. My reason for purchasing these is they are the cheapest 1 oz bars I could find, but to my surprise they are very quality.
- awesomeaaronon 11/28/13
Overallnice bars will order more
- exelentselvinon 9/21/13
Overalljust got my order and i am very happy with them and with provident.. will be ordering more.
- Excellent ValueWilliamon 9/7/13
OverallI like these bars. I ordered 23 just to round one lot up to 40. There are "prettier" 1-oz bars out there, But, these are fine, and worth every penny. It took a while to get them, but I'll be buying more of these for sure.
- Excellent BarsCharleson 8/28/13
OverallI purchased some of the golden state mint bars and was very impressed with the speed in delivery and with the bars themselves. These are about as plain as you can get in a bar but silver is silver I even weighed them and quite a few weighed 1/10-th over a troy oz and they looked very good ( No Scratches / Gouges )
I'll be buying more each month and will also be buying copper bars as well.
Thanks Provident Metals,
- Great productJoshuaon 8/13/13
OverallBought 5 of these and was very impressed so I turned around and bought 10 more a few days later. Will definitely be buying many more in bulk here on out.
- perfect stacking barsRandallon 6/29/13
OverallOrdered 20 if these and they all arrived in great shape. Even arrived in custom bar holder tube. Perfect for stacking due to its low premium. Like the frost finish. It's a little different from the JM bars which have a proof like field but very nice none the leads. Thanks again PM for great service and fast delivery.
- 3 good reasonsmetal stacker on 6/14/13
OverallI'm going to give this a 5 star, but not because it's a great looking bar. The bar is very basic. I'm giving this bar a 5 star for the following 3 reasons:.
1. The bar is always available at Provident. I like to buy the same bars over and over again for collecting and stacking purposes. There are other bars that I like much better, however, Provident has a hard time keeping them in stock. When I can't get my favorite bars, then I revert to the Golden State Mint. They are plentiful.
2. The price is right. You can't go wrong with a low priced bar.
3. Although I prefer 5 ounce and 10 ounce bars, I believe 1 ounce bars will have their purpose for bartering. When silver jumps in value, a 1 ounce bar will be highly valuable and sought after much like the 1 gram, 5 gram, 1/10 ounce gold bars are today. 1 ounce of silver might seem measly today, but in the future, it will have great value and be highly desirable.
- Excellent experienceJasonon 5/15/13
OverallI bought some of these 1 oz bars - They were here timely, as promised. A good quality product. Already ordered more from Provident.
- mixed reviewjohnon 5/7/13
Overallgot my first batch of these a few weeks ago and they were shiny silver... next batch received yesterday had more of a milky white look to the outside. Still happy overall... will certainly buy more of these.
- Beautiful!Michaelon 5/4/13
OverallI ordered 5 to test them out.
They are absolutely beautiful and perfectly minted. I will definitely be buying these when I stack up on bars.
I can't recommend enough!!
- Product great - packaging not so muchBradon 5/1/13
OverallThis is my second order of these bars. Shipment delayed which I understood and the bars themselves are great so no big deal. Not so happy with the overall packaging this time though.
- 100%Jessejames bangbangon 4/25/13
OverallI just got my order in and these bars are great, all in good shape. Thanks p m
- Just What I Wanted.James Hon 4/18/13
OverallThis is my first purchase, and I will DEFINITELY be purchasing many more. There is nothing really fancy about these bars which would increase the cost. I am purchasing them strictly for silver content. The service from Provident was excellent and I am completely satisfied..
- Great Transaction...Joeon 4/17/13
OverallI have made 2 separate purchases of these now and couldn't have expected better. These are a great value and the prices are amazing. They arrived individually packaged and in perfect condition. I hope this best kept secret doesn't get out before I get my fair share of it.
- Good for holdingMichaelon 4/16/13
OverallI purchased several of these 1oz bars to hold on to. I’m just getting into metals so I started small. Bottom line is that, I have committed to ordering five every two weeks, they are a great piece. My order arrived very quickly, within 1week of ordering. Bars are everything their description says they are. These are great for creating weight, but I wouldn’t say they are anything to "collect". I do recommend you buy some plastic cases for them as mine arrived in a zip lock. Provident has been the only place I have purchased from, and I can say they are top notch! Customer service was great and they have won my future business.
- FantasticKathryn on 4/4/13
OverallI am so happy with my order. These things are beautiful. Provident metal had the best price on the one ozt bars. I paid with credit card so my order took a little extra time, also these bars say handling time will be longer because of high demand. but other than that I'm 100% satisfied. It weighs good. Overall, I am extremely happy with my first provident metals transaction. Thank you very much provident.
- Great BuyLawrenceon 3/29/13
OverallOrdered 50 of these, very well pleased. Just started getting into Silver and Gold. They can only increase in value in the near future. The US Dollar is just about done.
- GSM 1oz BarBJLon 3/29/13
OverallThe bars came in perfect shape which is what I am basing my review on. My only complaint is that it took 2 weeks from the time of order till I had the item in hand.
- Very good pricing...Chadon 3/26/13
Overallon these bars. Will buy more of these, I really like the reverse of these and you can't beat the price. Provident always comes through...
- Nothing specialJameson 3/25/13
OverallGood and clean bars. I bought 10 1oz bars for a build up of weight, not for true collection purposes. Provident is always great with orders.
- Nice, plain barJoeon 3/25/13
OverallThis is a great, low premium, bar. It is plain and not going to win any beauty contests, but I am investing in the silver content, so no worries from me there. I ordered five bars, four of which looked like they had never been touched, one however had some handiling marks. That is the only reason for a less than perfect score. I would buy more for the right price.
- Wonderful serviceJohnon 3/22/13
OverallJust had 2 bars come in , they are all I was hoping for going to order some more now.
- Very nice barsCatherineon 3/18/13
OverallGreat bars at a great price. Very fast transaction time. I will buy again. Have recommended Provident to all my friends.
- Attractive barAndrewon 3/14/13
OverallThis is a great deal for the $. 1 oz bars fit great in business card binders :)
- Cant be beatSooner Silveron 3/9/13
OverallJust received. Awesome bars as always. Provident Metals is the best online source i have found ..
- Will add moreDavidon 3/4/13
OverallNo problem ordering, great pieces & just what I wanted. I have bought 5 times from Provident now and 3 times from other supplier before finding them. The pricing is better here at Provident, shipping cost is lower. They would definitely be a true 5 except for the slow processing...even with a postal money order it takes over a week to show received, another week later & it is still showing payment confirmed...I thought cash payment would be a bit faster than that but after 4 large orders (for me anyway) I know it will take 4 weeks start to finish from placing my order. A bit disappointed but my bank wants too much for a wire transfer & using a CC adds too much to the total ounces bought. All together Provident is very good to deal with. I just need to figure how best to order & cut the time to 2 wks. Thanks.
- GSM Silver BarMatton 3/3/13
OverallNothing flashy; plain-jane bars. Most bars come in mylar, but these came in little individual ziploc baggies. I can't blame Provident for that; that's probably how they receive them. With that said, they're still a great value. Great updates on the order from Provident. Once again, they will continue to receive my business.
- GreatChris on 2/12/13
OverallVery happy with this just ordered more
- GreatKevinon 1/30/13
OverallI have ordered a few of these with every order from Provident so far, they are not priced very much over spot value and they look fantastic. Ever bar I've received has had a mirror finish and fits perfectly in the air-tite 1 oz bar case. Little bit of a burr on the top edge but an ounce of silver nonetheless.
- Product POSITIVEBradon 1/28/13
OverallProduct arrived today and I could not be happier! The overall process time from ordering (and paying) to actual ship time seemed a little slow but that will not stop me from buying more. I am pleased and now look forward to many more purchases. Thanks!
- Great customer carePhilip on 1/28/13
OverallI placed orders on 3 consecutive days. Mon, Tues, Wed. My first order was delivered on the next Saturday and I was not home to sign. When I went to the Post Office on Monday, all 3 orders were in. Great products were packaged in tamper proof packs. All in perfect condition and just as described by the young lady I talked to on the phone. Provident does have customer service. How refreshing to find a company that actually cares.
- Great for stacking!Thomason 1/26/13
OverallJust ordered 1 to test the quality. A little bit disappointed as mines lacked the mirror finish many have mentioned. These have a decent design, but my purpose is to stack lots of them so design are secondary. Overall 4 stars for price and practicality. -1 star for lack of luster.
- Outstanding !Thomason 1/25/13
OverallPlaced my initial order with PM to test the waters. Nice looking bar with great luster. Will definitely do further business with this company - super products with great prices !
- Awesome buy!Langeron 1/19/13
OverallI popped my silver cherry on these. I am extremely satisfied with the service I received and quality of the product. Will definitely purchase more!
- Good Looking BarEricon 1/19/13
OverallNice bar I also got an a air tite for it
- GreatRichardon 1/18/13
Overallnice looking bar mint finished just wished it came in plastic sealed condition ...
- Good for the moneyPerryon 1/18/13
OverallI bought this bar hoping it would be a little more fine. Mine was a little rough around the top edges. The front is kind of boring, but the back of this bar is really nice. It also came in a small zip lock bag. Still good for the money.
- Very Niceroberton 1/17/13
OverallI ordered 20 bars for Christmas, I was very pleased with their condition, you can't find a better bar for the price.
- Mirror like finish, high quality product,unbeatable prices,Fast shipping,great customer serviceJ. B. from Georgiaon 1/16/13
OverallThe mirror-like finish and unbeatable price of this product is a no brainier. If your interested in adding high quality but cheap bullion to your stack this bar is for you.This product ships fast and is safely packaged.Thanks Provident for being my go to precious metal dealer.
- Excellet QualityRed Dogon 1/8/13
OverallI purchased ten bars at the intro price of 99 cents over spot. The bars arrived in great shape with each bar placed into a small zip lock bag for protection. The bars are the stardard size for one ounce bars and quaility is excellent. I have placed many orders with Provident and I'm extremely pleased . This is the only online dealer that I will recommend to my family and friends.
- Best Price!Lionelon 1/2/13
OverallI have done my due diligence, and have not been able to find anyone that can beat Provident's price. Great service and I also like dealing with a company from the Great State Of Texas.
- All around best valueBrandonon 12/28/12
OverallI have been doing business with Provident Metals for some time now. EVERYTHING I have purchased has been great...not one complaint. Great price, nice PMs, and lighting quick transactions. I reccomend the Golden State Mint 1oz bars, just got 30 of them. Shiney, low spot price....what more could you ask for??
- High quality bar...butMichaelon 12/28/12
OverallOverall these bars have great fit and finish and were in great condition....BUT they were smaller than I expected. This was my first purchase of a 1 oz. bar and would probably stick to low premium coins or larger bars from now on. The small size seemed a little underwhelming and I missed some of the " wow" factor you sometimes get from beautiful larger pieces. The 10 ounce bar is awesome Im sure. Great transaction as always with Provident in terms of shipping, packaging, and communication.
- Nice BarBrianon 12/28/12
OverallVery nice Bar at a nice introductory price. I got 30, but now it looks like the intro price is over. Still a nice bar that I would buy again. New to Provident, very pleased so far. I really like their site, easy to navigate and you can order 24/7. And the prices are the best I've found so far.
- Excellent ValueKyleon 12/27/12
OverallPurchased 100 of these bars at the introductory price. Beautiful mirror finish. None of them had any wear whatsoever. Introductory period now seems to be over but will not hesitate to purchase again the next time I'm looking for a 1 oz. bar. Multiples of 20 come in a useful plastic sleeve. Great for stacking.
Doing business with Provident could not be easier. Good prices, great service. Look no further.
- Great Piece for Savingcbankr22on 12/26/12
OverallLooking to save up 1oz increments of silver, this little piece is perfect. It comes as a small ingot piece for the right price. I plan on buying 1-2 of these each week and start a collection of silver. Great buy!
- 1 Troy Oz Fine SilverBmaxon 12/14/12
OverallBought 10 of these. Just received today. Not fancy, but One Troy Oz Fine Silver. Can't complain about that!! The packaging was very good. Took 2 weeks plus one day to receive order. Over all, very satisfied with order. Will probably order more if they keep this special going.
