At Monarch Precious Metals, skulls are a commonly used image on silver bars. However, none of these bars are as beloved by members of the precious metals community as the 5 oz Monarch Skull and Crossbones Silver Bar. Today, you can purchase this unique bar online from Provident Metals in brand new condition.
Monarch Precious Metals was one of the first mints to open after one of the more recent spikes in demand for gold and silver products. Monarch uses traditional production methods that involve hand pouring all the liquid metals into casts and stamping them with a design. This gives each product a rustic, slightly aged appearance.
The obverse face of each bar features a rough, matte finish with no engravings. However, you can clearly see the outlines of a skeletal skull over two crossed bones. The design is detailed enough that you can see teeth along the upper jaw.
On the reverse side of each bar, you will notice a rough finish. Instead of a design, there are engravings on this side of the bar including the weight, purity, metal content, and serial number.
Located in the Rogue Valley of southern Oregon, Monarch Precious Metals was founded in 2008, as demand for precious metals spiked during the Great Recession. What sets Monarch apart from other mints is that it uses only traditional hand-poured techniques and only makes products with a fineness of at least .999 purity.
