International Trade Bullion, known in abbreviation as ITB, refers to a prestige range of precious metals bullion products, including rounds and bars. These products, made at a Southwestern United States private refinery, include the 10 oz silver ITB bar which, as far as availability allows, you can order from our stock here at the U.S. Gold Bureau.
The 10 oz silver ITB bar is made at a fully integrated refining facility that manages the melting, analysis, casting, rolling, extruding, blanking and rimming processes. Each bar weighs 10 Troy ounces - or 311 grams. It is comprised of recycled silver with purity exceeding .999. You can be confident that each bar's silver purity is genuinely as advertised. The refining facility also runs an ultramodern purity verification laboratory, where each ITB product's exact precious metal content is determined and controlled through advanced techniques including traditional fire assay, X-ray fluorescence, and atomic absorption.
Furthermore, should you fall on hard times, rest assured that there is, and will likely continue to be a high demand for silver. Due to its impressive conductivity, silver can be put to many industrial purposes. As computers and cell phones - in which silver can form parts of components - rise in popularity, there is the possibility of silver rising in price.
Therefore, a 10 oz silver ITB bar can be a worthwhile addition to a precious metals portfolio that could also feature various other gold and silver coins and bars ordered from our stock. You could even place that silver ITB bar in a self-directed IRA to get the associated tax benefits. Keep in mind that, to do this, you will need to complete further paperwork when you purchase the bar.
If you are an investor, buying 10 oz silver ITB bars is a practical option whether your budget is considerable or modest. Remember that each of these bars' selling values will be determined by the precious metal content, not any face value. This makes such bars ideal for falling back on should economic shocks lead to a fall in the value.
