The brand new 1kg silver bar is produced by Swiss refiners Metalor and recognised by the LBMA. The cast silver bar can be traded anywhere globally. Each bar contains 1kg of fine silver and comes with a unique serial number and certificate, for buyer confidence.
These are low-cost ways of building a physical silver holding. Due to their size, price-per-gram is lower than buying 1oz silver coins.

When choosing which weight of the silver bar to buy, we also recommend reading our article – how much is a silver bar worth? This provides much insight into what determines the value of a silver bar – including cast vs minted and discussion on the silver buying/selling spread.
An alternative to this 1KG bar may be to focus on UK silver coins. In particular silver Britannias are a very popular option for silver investing. They are 1oz in weight, providing more flexibility to your portfolio so you can sell smaller increments than owning 1 kilo silver bars. They have the added advantage of a British legal tender status, so are also free from Capital Gains Tax.
This may not be relevant if you’re looking at modest investments as each UK individual is allowed around £11,000 of capital gains each year before they are subject to tax. However, if you’re buying larger quantities or intend to add investments to your initial holding, then this may be a consideration.
