MK Barz is an up-and-coming silver refinery operating as a private company in the United States. The vast majority of the silver bars, rounds, and squares for sale from MK Barz are produced using hand-poured techniques.
A hand-poured silver product is made using tried-and-true techniques that have existed for thousands of years. Rather than turning to machines for all the work, MK Barz trusts its refiners to pour molten silver from vats into pre-formed molds to produce bars or rounds with specific shapes and weights.
The result are products such as the 2 oz MK Barz Hand Poured Map Skull Silver Square, which have a unique design. In the case of many hand-poured bars and rounds, no two products are exactly alike. The rugged finish and rough appeal of these products adds to the sense of individual character, and tends to attract collectors who enjoy diversity in their purchases.
On the obverse of all 2 oz MK Barz Hand Poured Map Skull Silver Squares you’ll find the image of a pirate skull overlaying a map field. The map field consists of the image of an ancient compass, often found on many maps used by sailors and navigators of a bygone era. Engravings include the name of the refinery, the weight and purity of the square, and the metal content.
Compasses were first developed more than 2,000 years ago during the Han dynasty of China. Many of the first compasses used were made with lodestone, which is a naturally magnetized ore of iron. Pirate-themed designs and the use of an ancient compass or map images are a common fixture of many different MK Barz product lines.
MK Barz is a family-owned and operated mint specializing in the production of hand-poured silver bullion and American coins exclusively minted in the United States. The company was founded in Los Angeles, California in 2014.
