There are many forms of silver available to investors and collectors. There’s another market out there for silver that consists of small jewelers, hobbyists, and artisans that use the beautiful precious metal for a number of other applications. Silver shot has long been the primary option for these individuals, and others, but SilverTowne has a new option for those groups in the form of silver shavings. Right now, 100 oz SilverTowne Silver Shaving products are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Each of the 100 oz SilverTowne Silver Shaving products in this product listing come with a clear plastic cylinder. The cylinder contains hundreds or thousands of silver shavings that combine for a total weight of 100 Troy oz. SilverTowne certifies that the combined silver within has a purity of .999 pure silver. There is a certification seal on the exterior of the cylinder identifying the weight, purity, and metal content. Further, the cylinder is twice sealed for security. The lid is secured with tamper-evident white tape and the entire cylinder is sealed in shrink-wrapped plastic.
Silver shavings are a better form of silver for hobbyists, jewelers, and artisans to use. The benefit of silver shavings is the ability of the product format to melt as much as two times as quickly as traditional silver shot. While silver shot is produced by throwing molten silver in water to fast-cool into small BB pellets, silver shavings come from large blocks of silver and are “shaved” off into thinner curls of silver.
There are many applications, both commercial and industrial, for silver shavings. 100 oz SilverTowne Silver Shavings can be used to refine into bullion blanks that can later be turned into silver rounds or silver bars. However, you don’t have to be a small private mint to find use in silver shavings.
Silver shavings can be used to manufacture silver paint, silver ink, polymer films, and material for jewelry makers and watch repair specialists. It is also an ideal medium for artisans looking to mold silver into their own, unique designs.
SilverTowne Mint is one of the nation’s best private mint facilities. The company started as a small coin shop in 1949. It was founded in Winchester, Indiana, by Leon Hendrickson and is now a trust bullion dealer and refiner.
