This 10 oz silver Britannia bar is minted in the Royal Mint in the United Kingdom and contains 10 troy ounces of silver, minted in .999 purity. This bar is larger than the typical 1 oz silver bullion bars. However, one 10-ounce bar usually offers a better deal because its value is closer to the spot value of silver than 10 equivalent 1-ounce silver bars. Why?
The time and labor of creating one 10-ounce bar is less than that for ten 1-ounce bars, so the purchase price can remain closer to its material value. For this reason, when it comes to precious metals, bigger is often better.
Speaking of size, this particular bar is 6.44 millimeters thick, and its face measures 90.02 mm by 51.92 mm. That’s about the same footprint as a business card.
The Britannia silver bar is an example of a “minted” bar, meaning it’s designed, finished and polished similarly to a coin. The reverse side of this bar showcases an engraving of Britannia created by designer Jody Clark. Britannia is a female figure who represents Great Britain and is typically depicted holding a trident, representing Britain's maritime power. She stands in profile, facing to her left, and wearing an ornate helmet over her loose, flowing hair. The background features rows of rounded waves. In the bottom left corner is a partial view of Britannia's shield, which has an engraving of the Union Jack and her name, "Britannia" along the bottom.
On the obverse side of the bar, the same rounded rows of waves form the background, with more ornate ocean waves along the bottom of the bar face. The text "The Royal Mint" and the Royal Mint's iconic shield are engraved near the top of the face. The key specifications of the bar are also engraved in raised font across the middle of the bar face, identifying it as 10 ounces of .999 fine silver.
