AG | 50oz


This page contains our current information on
 50oz class Engelhard silver production bars and Legacy Ingots.  The Engelhard 50oz production lineage closely followed the stamping placement and style of earlier 100oz bars, throughout both US and Canadian production runs.  Engelhard 50oz bars, in general, are actually quite rare, with less than 13,000 examples produced spanning over two decades.  Since they are categorically larger commercial bullion bars, it is likely that a high percentage of these bars have been melted over the years.

[Metals Fabrication and Refining]  It is important to note that ‘MFR’ is not a serial number suffix as some collectors may claim.  The 100oz class examples confirm this as serial number and ‘MFR’ designation are stamped on opposed corners of the ingot.  Possible Canadian variation due to floating decimal on weight stamp and placement of purity stamping. 62376
