For the small artisan, craftsman, or even jewelry maker, silver shot is the typical go-to product that can be melted down quickly and easily. Silver shot has long been used as an affordable option for hobbyists, as well as mints looking to further refine silver shot into bullion. SilverTowne is now offering an alternative to silver shot that melts faster and comes in a unique form. Right now, you can buy 1 Kilo Silver Shavings online at Provident Metals.
With your purchase of the 1 Kilo Silver Shavings in this listing, you receive your product inside of a clear plastic cylinder. SilverTowne has certified the total of the silver shavings in the cylinder as .999 pure silver content. Each one comes with a certification label to this effect on the outside of the cylinder. The cylinder itself is sealed around the lid with white tamper-evident tape and around its entirety with a clear plastic wrap.
1 Kilo Silver Shavings as found in this SilverTowne cylinder look a lot like how the product description sounds. The individual bits of silver look a lot like shavings of wood from woodworking. The exception, of course, being that these shavings come from a larger block of silver.
Shavings vs Shot
Silver shot is typically the product that mints will use to refine silver bullion blanks later used in the production of silver rounds and bars. Silver shot is produced by tossing molten silver into water to force it into forming small globs, or BB pellets. Silver shavings are produced by shaving silver from larger blocks of silver. The primary benefit of silver shavings is the speed in the manufacturing process. Whether purchased for a mint to refine into bullion or by hobbyists and artisans, silver shavings melt twice as fast as shot, speeding up the process.
SilverTowne has grown from a small coin shop to become one of the most trusted bullion dealers in the United States. Founded in 1949, the company grew from a coin shop to become a mint in its own right with a wide range of products it manufactures on its own.
