Kilo Silver Bars
Silver coins, rounds, and bars all offer benefits to investors who want to expand their portfolio. Precious metal collectors and stackers can benefit from diversifying their holdings as much as possible. Kilo silver bars allow collectors to stock up on high quantities of silver without shelling out a ton of extra cash for high premiums. Because silver bars are designed more with quantity than design quality in mind, savvy buyers can save quite a bit of money by buying a large silver bar instead of a smaller coin.
Kilo silver bars also offer something for every type of investor. Some kilo silver bars are minted with beautiful designs and logos, while others are made to be as simple and straightforward as possible. Whether you’re looking for the next centerpiece of your silver bar collection or just trying to get as much silver as possible for your money, Hero Bullion offers several 1 kilo silver bars to choose from.
On this page, you’ll find helpful information about the history of silver bars, the advantages of buying 1 kilo silver bars, and some of the most popular 1 kilo silver bars Hero Bullion has to offer.
History of Silver Bars
Most silver collectors don’t know that silver has sometimes been more valuable than gold. Historians believe that the first instances of silver being used as a sign of wealth go all the way back to 2,000 BC. Egyptian leaders actually valued silver higher than gold; gold was much easier to find in that part of the world during this time period. It wasn’t until around 300 B.C. that Egyptians standardized silver as a usable currency.
Silver bars have been used to store wealth for over 4,000 years, and the precious metal is still a favorite for millions of investors today. Silver as an investment is a bit newer. During the 1980s, silver bars became one of the preferred investments in the commodities market. Today, most major mints produce their own pure silver bars. It’s never been easier for the average investor to buy pure silver in the form of silver bars.
Kilo silver bars might have been around for a long time, but they haven’t always been a commodity available to non-bank purchasers. We’re proud to carry on a thousand-year tradition of silver bars by offering a wide variety of 1 kilo silver bars from around the world to our customers.
Why Buy 1 Kilo Silver Bars?
Many silver stackers prefer 1 kilo silver bars because of their relatively low premium over spot. While these large silver bars don’t offer the aesthetic appeal of a coin like the Silver Eagle, they allow investors to acquire a large amount of pure silver without paying an additional premium on top of the actual price of the metal. Because silver bars offer such a classic look, some investors also prefer to stack using silver bars. After all, it’s always been a sign of impressive wealth to have a safe full of pure silver bars!
Hero Bullion offers reasonable prices on all of our silver bars. We prefer to keep the premium over spot as low as possible on these products, because we understand how they’re used to stack silver by savvy investors.
Advantages of Buying 1 Kilo Silver Bars
There are several reasons why so many investors prefer to buy 1 Kilo Silver Bars. In this section, we’ll primarily be comparing silver bars to silver coins. After all, new investors often wonder: is it better to buy silver bars or silver coins? Here are a few reasons why seasoned investors all over the world like to spend their money on 1 kilo silver bars:
Low Premium Over Spot. This is the main reason why investors prefer 1 kilo silver bars. The total cost to purchase a silver bar is significantly lower than the cost of purchasing most government-backed silver coins. Especially if you’re purchasing a lot of silver at once, this can mean hundreds or thousands of dollars in total savings when compared to coins or rounds.
Convenient Storage. Silver bars often require less up-front investment when it comes to storage costs. Bars can be stacked on top of one another and held in a safe. Coins are generally valued for their condition as well as their silver content, which means spending more money and time arranging them to avoid damage. Many dealers also offer silver storage services, which takes the guesswork out of the silver storage process.
Classic Look. Silver bars aren’t visually appealing to everyone. But for many investors, it’s beautiful to see a large stack of 1 kilo silver bars sitting in the vault.
Disadvantages of Buying 1 Kilo Silver Bars
While 1 kilo silver bars are very popular among silver stackers, this investment model still comes with its inconveniences. For most people, buying silver bars means sacrificing design and beauty for value. Here are a couple of the main disadvantages to buying 1 kilo silver bars:
Difficult Resale. It can sometimes be harder to find buyers for your silver bars than for popular silver coins, such as the Britannia or the Silver Maple. Depending on which silver bars you purchase, it may also be more difficult to prove the legitimacy of your silver bar. Silver coins are highly recognizable; every coin dealer knows what an authentic Britannia looks like, for example. Still, many investors liquidate their 1 kilo silver bars every year, and many mints (including Hero Bullion) have generous buyback systems to help you liquidate your stock of silver bars.
Quality Concerns. This is a disadvantage that hinges on the reputation of the mint investors choose to do business with. It can often be harder to spot fake silver bars than to clock a counterfeit popular silver coin. Some mints also cut corners when minting their silver bars, which can lead to an ugly or impure final product. Hero Bullion only offers the highest quality 1 kilo silver bars possible, which takes some of the risk out of this process.

Valcambi Cast 1 Kilo Silver Bar
Valcambi is a Swiss bullion mint known for its stellar quality reputation. The Valcambi-Suisse name is familiar to most bullion collectors, and the company has won a solid following of investors.

The textured reverse side of the Valcambi 1 kilo silver bar isn’t anything special. It’s completely blank – which makes it easy to stack on top of other silver bars!
Valcambi’s obverse on the 1 kilo silver bar is where the company’s eye for design really shines. We note the Valcambi-Suisse company name and logo, which is struck in fine lettering and rendered in impressive detail. The obverse also includes the weight, material, and purity (.999) of Valcambi’s 1 kilo silver bar.

Another very popular mint operating out of Switzerland, Argor-Heraeus offers their own spin on the classic 1 kilo silver bar. Like their Swiss competitor, Argos-Heraeus leaves the reverse side of their silver bar purposely blank. Compared to the Valcambi silver bar, this silver product’s reverse side has a bit more going on. The text is centered underneath a detailed company logo and includes the minting location, weight, material, and purity of the bar. Underneath these details we can see a stamp of authenticity, as well as a serial number.
While these 1 kilo silver bars certainly aren’t designed to be the beauty of a silver collection, they do offer a certain rustic charm.
