Provident Metals has captured a unique piece of American history in the Provident Prospector Bars and Rounds. Each of these fine silver and copper bullion pieces celebrates the spirit of adventure and endurance woven into the fabric of our great nation. The obverse features a prospector in the rugged mountains of California standing beside a mule and holding a pickaxe and prospecting pan. The reverse features a map, compass, and sextant.
Each piece in this series is manufactured at the Elemetal Mint. The silver bullion pieces consist of .999 fine silver, and the copper rounds consist of 1 AVDP ounce of .999 fine copper. Because the Elemetal Mint is an ISO9001 certified facility that employs LBMA good delivery standards, each piece of silver Provident Prospector bullion may be included in a self-directed precious metals IRA.
The newest member of the Provident Prospector line is the Privy Marked rounds. Each of these dynamic rounds features a privy mark that was meaningful to the early prospectors. The first release was the Provident Prospector Colt Privy Round. This round features two crossed peacemaker colt .45s in the lower left of the obverse. More Prospector Privies are on their way…
The Elemetal Mint is a collaborative venture between Provident Metals, Ohio Precious Metals, and NTR Metals. Founded to provide investment quality bullion at the lowest possible price, the Elemetal Mint represents the first precious metals company that actively advocates for their customers.
Because the Provident Prospector series of silver and copper bullion is manufactured by a private mint, these dynamic bullion pieces do not carry the same premium as sovereign minted bullion, despite consisting of silver of the same purity. Savvy investors use privately minted silver bullion as a way to increase their purchasing, and maximize the amount of silver they are able to buy.

Individual 1 oz Silver bars will ship in resealable poly bags, and quantities of 20 in mint tubes. 5 and 10 oz Silver Bars will ship in mint sealed plastic sheets.
