While there are many options available when it comes to buying highly-refined silver, there are few options out there that are less refined and able to be worked into something else. Silver shot has traditionally been the product small mints purchase to refine silver bullion, or an option for hobbyists and artisans. SilverTowne now offers a new option for these individuals in the form of its new silver shavings. Right now, you can buy 10 oz Silver Shavings online at Provident Metals.
With your purchase of 10 oz Silver Shavings through this Provident Metals listing, you receive a clear plastic cylinder that has been sealed twice for security and certification purposes. Each cylinder has tamper-evident white tape on the lid to seal it and the entire cylinder is sealed in shrink-wrap plastic for added security. The outside of the cylinder has a certification sticker with the weight, purity, and metal content of the silver shavings.
The 10 oz Silver Shavings in this cylinder look just like wooden shavings from woodworking projects. The silver has been shorn off of larger blocks or chunks of silver to create thin, curled shavings of silver that can be used for all manner of products. SilverTowne has certified that the entire cylinder of shavings contains .999 pure silver.
Silver shavings can be used by small mints in the production of beautiful silver bullion pieces. The silver can be melted down quickly and produced into silver bullion blanks that can later be refined into silver rounds or silver bullion bars. In fact, one of the major benefits of silver shavings is the ability of the items to be melted down twice as fast as silver shot, speeding up the production process.
In fact, silver shavings have more than just one use. While mints can use it for silver bullion blank production, it can also be used by jewelers to create new pieces or repair parts for broken jewelry. Silver shavings can be melted to produce silver ink or silver paint. It can be even used in the production of artistic pieces by artisans.
SilverTowne started life as a small coin shop when Leon Hendrickson founded it in 1949 in Winchester, Indiana. The company grew over the decades to include a mint facility that is now one of the most respected facilities in the United States.
