AG | Odd Size


This page contains our current information on odd-sized Engelhard commercial bars and the most exclusive Legacy Ingots. Engelhard’s most desirable Legacy Ingots are the early production odd weight class ingots illustrated below. You will see below how rudimentary and varied the stamping methods were in these early examples and it is this raw and classic appeal that many collectors today find so alluring.  But only until recently these ultra rare ingots were considered “junk” bars, and melted and scrapped in haste, and quantity!  The mintage estimates below estimate actual production numbers, however, actual surviving examples are likely a small fraction of this number.

Bars on this page range in size from as small as 5 grams to as large as 1000 troy ounces!  All varieties defined on this page are considered ‘uncommon’ or ‘rare’ and regarded as highly desirable for collectors and enthusiasts.
