Engelhard Corporation was once one of the leading refiners of precious metals in the United States. Founded in 1902, the company got its start as a platinum smelter and refiner before moving into the production of gold, silver, and platinum bullion bars. Provident Metals now has 10 oz Silver Poured Bars in a wide format available to you for purchase online.
When you purchase a 10 oz Silver Poured Bar in this Provident Metals listing, you will receive a bar that was produced by Engelhard using its wide format. As a wide-format bar, the inscriptions on the finished product are stamped across the face of the bar in a horizontal alignment from left to right, rather than vertically from the top to bottom. Each bar comes with its own plastic sleeve.
The obverse field of the 10 oz Silver Poured Bar comes with the only stamped markings on the bar. These markings are stamped incuse into the surface of the bar with a sunken finish. Included on this face of the bar are markings of 999+, 10.000, ENGELHARD, and an individual serial number. Engelhard used a simple six-number coding system for the serial numbers on these silver bars.
On the reverse side of 10 oz Silver Poured Bars from Engelhard, the design field is blank. Most cast silver bars like this are left with a blank reverse. Although the reverse of the bar is blank, that doesnt mean there are no visual elements present. The poured process for production often results in lines, textures, and other striations forming as the silver settles and cools.
Engelhard Corporation was formed in 1902 in Newark, New Jersey, by Charles W. Engelhard. He started the company when he purchased the Charles F. Croselmire Company in 1902. He would form the American Platinum Works in 1903 and later acquire a platinum smelting and refining business. Engelhard is credited with the development of the catalytic converter for internal combustion engines, and by the 1970s was refining gold, silver, and platinum. In 2006, the company ceased operations following its sale to BASF of Germany.
