Received my first 10 oz bar. Pleased with transaction. Bar came in with new packaging but it had a dent in the top corner. May have been from shipping handlers. I will still buy more. Thanks
- Provident Rocks!!!Douglas on 9/14/17
I told you Provident Rocks in my last review. They just keep on getting better. This round I ordered 1 - 10 ounce random bar. I received my order today and it was brand new, still in plastic from Sunshine Mint. When I thought it couldn't get better they did!!! That's why i say Provident Rocks!!! Stay tuned for more reviews. Thanks Provident.
- Great choiceMark on 9/5/17
Tried the random 10 oz bar and got a brand new, still wrapped Prospector bar. The detail in this bar is amazing. Thanks Provident. I will order again.
- 1 oz. Silver Rounds "used"Kevin on 9/3/17
Thank You! Received 7 oz. rounds. "Like New." I've got two more orders with Provident! I enjoy the "updates" and specials which can save me money! Keep on stacking!

It's everything I wanted for the price I wanted. Fast delivery. I messed up the payment method but Customer Support was very nice and helped me. Took 7 days to arrive with eCheck. I love this site, great people.

Yet another perfect transaction. Best deal around. Interesting 10 oz year of the snake received on this order.
- Got What I Paid ForPackandstack on 3/29/17
I bought secondary market and that was what I got. Pretty straight forward. I got two A-Mark Bars. One was a little more dinged than the other, but I ultimately got exactly what I bought: Secondary market 10OZ bars that were really not in bad shape. They were not really that bad and looked like some of the other 10OZ bars I have had in my stack for a few years with dings on them from handling.
- 10 oz Secondary Silver BarKevin on 3/29/17
"Whoa!" Very pleased with my first purchase of a "secondary 10 oz. bar. Still factory sealed NTR silver. and looks brand new. Thanks for quick service. I will return shortly.

Neat pack and no sign of ware.
- ExcellentJonathan on 3/11/17
Great products offered at reasonable prices !
- No surprisesPhilip on 2/21/17
A little disappointed. I received a new OPM bar. For the same price I could have picked out my own generic bar, like a Provident, Year of the Rooster or American flag. Oh well. Still shipped lightning fast and it is 10 ozs of silver so still a 5 star transaction.
- excellent productJames on 2/6/17
Always a good deal and quick shopping when buying from provident.
- Very happyCL on 2/3/17
This is my first order, and I am very happy with the quality of the product and the ease of the transaction. The two bars I received were in great condition and consider it good value as someone only wanting a hedge against the stock market. Will buy again.
- Excellent ChoiceJD on 1/30/17
When stacking/hoarding silver it's all based on price. Who cares what design is on the bar since it's being tucked away.
These are my go-to bars for stacking. When in-stock they're always the best price.
This time I received a Year of the Horse and a Year of the Goat.
- Very Nice BarsDavid on 10/27/16
First time buying " Our choice bars " received 3 of the same kind and still in the plastic. Good prices will order more....
- EXCELLENTRichard on 10/24/16

- Awesome pickup!Chris on 9/12/16
This is my 7th or 8th "our choice" 10 ozt bar I have purchased from Provident Metals, and prior, they have all been very common generic bars, but this one was a Scottsdale Stacker in mint condition. I am totally pleased with the selection I was given. Will continue to do business with Provident every opportunity I get!
- EXTREMELY SATISFIED!August on 8/30/16
I mailed my M/O on the same day that I placed my first order & my bars arrived 6 days later. They returned my call, next day, when I saw the item was out of stock. My only issue was with the condition of 1 of the 2 silver bars. I'm already saving up for my next order with Provident because they're cheaper than any other site & the customer service & processing time is the best in the industry.
- Good transactionnick on 8/27/16
3/3 ntr bars, well packaged and seem to be new. They even included a lollipop! My only minor complaint is that they shipped ups as opposed to USPS, and the shipping wasnt as quick as usual.
- Fantastic First OrdeBrian on 8/27/16
Placed an order for 2 on 8/19 via m/o and received order on 8/25!!! Can't ask for better service. But I mistakenly ordered these Secondary Market bars, in the excitement of placing my 1st order. Still I received 2 Sunshine Mint bars. 1 is good as new, in original pouch. 2nd shows signs of frequent handling and was in a plastic bag taped shut. People PLS wipe your precious metals with a soft cloth to remove oils from fingers. Better yet, keep 'em in their original packaging for the next owner.
- First & Last TimeBrian on 8/25/16
Received 2 Sunshine Mint bars. 1 perfect in original sealed plastic. 2nd is heavily tarnished. Delivery was exceptional. Placed order on 8/19/16, arrived 8/25/16. I'll order again but pay the Extra $.04-$.14/oz to choose bars that resell higher .
- Extremely Pleased!Curtis on 8/8/16
I ordered 3 bars. I received a Canadian Maple, Sunshine Mint and Year of the Dragon. Extremely pleased with the choices and they were in great shape.
- I love a surpriseEric on 8/6/16
Very pleased... Always a surprise to get a New-and-different..
First things first I am a stacker and a price shopper. As long as it's 99.999 I really am not proud and who doesn't LOVE a good surprise... I'm like a little kid opening a Christmas package...
I enjoy the price break, the product and have always received top-notch service... For this I am grateful!
- Ordered 10DONALD on 8/1/16
I like the their option purchase. Done it a couple times and this time I got all the same. 10 OPM 10OZ bars. Would have liked to gotten a mix but can't complain since the price went up a lot from the time I ordered and received it. Will do again.
- Greatnick on 7/29/16
Great product, everything was as promised. I was hoping to get a mix of bars but I just got 3/3 OPM bars. I would have preferred an assortment but it is very clear that the selection is at their whim and you may get duplicates and/or boring bars. I'm buying for the silver content alone, was just hoping for some curiosities in terms of manufacture/design. There packaging was superb, almost a little too good. The bars look completely new and clean, and are sealed in plastic sleeves which I don't want to remove them from to weigh, as I normally would. Hard to be mad about too nice of packaging though. I ordered on the 20th, sent them a money order, and received my bars on the 29th, which is damn quick shipping as far as I am concerned. Friendly customer service, quick shipping, and the lowest prices I can find online. Definitely Provident is my new go to for online bullion purchasing.
- SATISFIEDMel on 7/12/16
Bought a 10 oz bar a few weeks ago and got a generic Provident Metals bar, the most common and least premium bar. Thought I'd take another chance and just received my 2nd bar and was happy to see an NTR bar. Gave it 4 stars because of the least premium bar but the ad does say "our choice" so no big deal. Was hoping for an Engelhard. Both bars shipped securely. Provident has lower premiums than another company that I use.
- As AdvertisedJD on 5/13/16
Took my chances and received a Year of the Goat bar. Appears brand new. Fast shipping as always from Provident. Will definitely get my generic silver this way again in the future.
- Everything as advertised.Stephen on 3/1/16
I was hoping for some kind of surprise. I got two of the generic provident 10oz bars. No surprise this time, but everything was as advertised. I've got some 1oz bars of their choice on their way. I'll review those once I get them. The grab bag is always fun at least! Provident is amazing to do business with.
- Excellent purchaseJoseph Yelverton on 12/22/15
I ordered a couple of these on 7/5/15, mainly just out of curiosity of how the "Our Choice" option would pan out. I was very pleased. The bars were a recognized brand, & the condition was great. I would definetly buy these again, should the need arrise. Thanks.
- ExcellentGary on 10/9/15
I got a Geiger bar! It is in great shape in its original package. What a deal! Thank you Provident!!!
- OkayGary on 10/9/15
Got another Pan American bar. They must like giving them to me. It was scuffed and dirty. How can this be as it is in its original plastic.
- HappyGary on 8/3/15
I got a Pan American bar. Very good shape and still in original plastic. I am very happy with my purchase!
- Great Bars at a Good PriceJosh on 8/1/15
I ordered 10 of these bars and was very happy with the product. The bars are in near perfect condition and are a good design. Also, the markup is unbeatable.
The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that the plastic wraps the bars came in were dirty and gave off a residue that clung to the bars. This was not a huge deal however - the bars cleaned up with about a minute of work per bar.
- Design was their choice but not one I care for.Randy on 7/13/15
Nice bars but design was not one I liked. Religious
- The lottery can pay offRob on 6/15/15
Ordered two 10 oz silver bars using "Our Choice."
Received two Johnson-Matthey bars that - while not quite as shiny as new were Fantastic.
Look, I'm here to buy silver as an investment; buy low and sell high is the plan. A little less, shiny or scratched or dented or not in a bag is irrelevant to me.
You know it's like the lottery before you order.
- Nice Silver BarAllen on 6/4/15
Great price and quick delvery. Good quality silver bar.

- fist class all the wayEdward on 1/10/15
In the past, I've purchased silver and gold bars from Provident. I've never been disappointed. Everything is delivered fast and in good condition. A first rate dealers all the way.
- HAPPY HAPPYJames Sprouse,Jr. on 7/11/14
Just received (5) 10oz bars 2 sunshine mint and 3 opm nothing special but very nice clean bars. Will order more our choice bars soon. A surprise in every box, just like cracker jacks lol. Thanks Provident for a flawless transaction.
- Received first shipmentMark on 6/9/14
I just received my first order using the our choice option on 10oz bars and I got a few 1oz rounds as well.
The rounds were all generic but all in as new or close condition and I'm pleased. The 10oz bar was a republic bar with the protective cover still in place and I'm overall satisfied especially at the price over spot that I paid......I feel I got my monies worth and have ordered more with hopes that I get lucky and get a name brand or two in my next shipment . Overall I'm happy as I got what I was thinking I would get with the order being all generic.
- good choicekyle on 3/7/14
Got a Year of the Snake bar. Already have one but I can't complain Its bran new in the sealed plastic.
- Beyond ExpectationsWilliam on 1/9/14
I received a collectable vintage MTB bar with a very low serial number in nice condition. Has a lot of collectible value on top of it's bullion value so I'm very, very pleased. Can't believe I got something so great! Shipped quick and packaged well. Will try my luck again in the future on these "our choice" bars. Love the mystery of it!
- nicekyle on 12/24/13
Got a Republic Bank of New York bar. Its something different, which is why I choose this option. Im 50/50 on choosing "our choice". Win some lose some. By lose I mean something I could have just bought bran new for less.
- Not as good as last timeJeff on 11/26/13
I rolled the dice again on choice 10oz silver bars. See my previous review and compare if you want.
Bar 1: NTR. Good condition, can't complain.
Bar 2: OPM Not as good condition, but still can't really complain since these are circulated. This OPM bar was barely worse than the new in plastic OPM bar I bought from Provident previously. See my OPM 10oz bar review.
Both of these bars we shipped without plastic. Both were put in the same bag without anything separating them from each other. I don't think they got much scratched beyond how they started, but why not just add a little bit of a layer so they don't degrade in shipment? Anyways, the package they were shipped in was really good.
This would be a 5 star review if it was not for the bars being packed better.
- inferior barAndrew on 11/19/13
got OPM bar, looks and feel old bar. it would have been better to purchase NEW OPM bar by paying $1.50 more. Scratches, dings, wear on edges,no plastic cover and tarnish make this bar look old.. i was hoping for superior bar of choice. I WILL NEVER let Provident choose again.
- Good stuffJeff on 10/30/13
I'm a first time customer and rolled the dice on some 10oz bars. The two I received were Apmex still in the factory plastic. The plastic on both had a little shelf wear since they obviously have changed hands a couple times before landing at my house. One of the bars has a slightly ripped corner.
All in all I'd say this was a good purchase. I'll buy more. At the time of writing these are all sold out.
- Its okKenneth on 9/19/13
I got a NTR bar. I could of just bought a NTR bar, what can I say. Next time ill forgo the mystery and buy a NTR bar.
- Average but worth itJohn on 8/9/13
Ordered three of these and, after reading some of the reviews, was a little disappointed as two were NTR bars and the third World Wide Mint. Shipped in loose ziplock baggies but packaged well and all bars were in good shape. I will buy these again as the luck of the draw may be with me in the future.
- It's always a good time...James on 4/15/13
...when you buy from the "designs of our choice" expecting some generic silver bar and then you open the package and find a nice brand-name bar (Engelhard) staring up at you! I will surely order again:)
- Werewolf RepellantSilver Sensei on 2/15/13
Received 30 of these awesome bars. Nearly credit card size about 3/4 inch thick.
Most of these bars were in excellent condition. 1 or 2 were a slight bit scruffy but no big deal at all. At the time of this review, i paid $305.00 per bar. The silver price actually dropped below 30$ today.
- very happyJeffrey on 12/28/12
I purchased 10 of these. They were all sealed and seemed to be brand new. Most of them were name brands which they normally charge more for.
- Great service, good deal, fast delivery!William on 3/6/12
I ordered two of these "our choice" bars late last week (on 2/29) and took delivery of them yesterday (3/5). Delivery was fast and the packaging was very discreet. The bars looked practically brand new, save for a few minor dings. I am very pleased with Provident Metals, their service is impeccable.
- Happy with it.david on 2/27/12
Received a 10 oz A-Mark stacker type bar. No complaints. Worth much more than I paid using the our choice option!
- Yep...10 oz silver barsVI on 2/2/12
I ordered 10 of these and all came in good condition and were well packed. Only one, however, do I like better then the NTR bars which command a $2 premium when it's time to sell them. That said I'll likely roll the dice again on these bars. Who knows maybe next time I'll get something cool.
- Happy no complaintsMr on 1/13/12
I ordered 15 and there was only 1 I would consider to be below expectations and all the rest were good brands and exceeded my expectations. VERY HAPPY.
- Good dealCharles on 8/6/11
I am happy with the nice clean bar I received. The entire ordering process went smoothly and bar was packaged very nicely, and shipped fast.
- Wow!Alexandre on 7/18/11
Provident's 10 oz .999 "Our Choice" silver bars are priced *very* competitively. For only a dollar over spot, I received a beautiful 10 oz Academy bar in excellent condition. I'm glad to know that Provident doesn't just pick the cheapest bar on the market to make a quick buck. Having a beautiful collection of unique pieces of physical silver is important to me as it helps reduce the temptation to sell my investment when I "need" money for a new gadget. I'm excited to order a few more and see what turns up!
- Good Deal!Flamecut on 3/9/11
They may not be as pretty and shiny as the "new" bars, but a silver polishing cloth quickly brings back much of the shine and luster to these discount secondary bars. The point is that when it comes time to liquidate, they're worth the same as any .999 fine bullion.
Purchase 10 oz silver bars for as low as only $0.79 over spot!
- Mint: Randomized
- Year of Issue: Randomized
- Composition: Ten troy ounces of .999 fine silver
About This Product
For investors who wish to accumulate silver without regard for design, this is a great option for buying silver bullion bars. With each purchase of this product, you will receive a 10 oz .999 fine silver bar (which will be hallmark stamped to that effect). The mint of origin and the design will be randomized according to our current inventory. Orders of multiples may or may not contain varying designs.
Silver bars in this category may be sourced from the secondary market, which means they may show minor signs of wear or handling. Yet buying bars from the Our Choice category allows you to receive high-purity silver bars for a low premium.
Silver bullion is a cost-effective way to invest in precious metals and diversify your portfolio. Bars, in particular, are flat and uniform, making them easy to stack and store.
