Purchase a 10 oz 1981 U.S. Assay Office silver bar today for the best price on the web.

The 10 oz 1981 U.S. Assay Office silver bars were part of a strategic move by the government to drive down the price of Silver after the Hunt brothers attempted to "corner" the market. Having over 165 million ounces of Silver the government decided to flood the market with their abundance of physical precious metal which in turn caused the price to fall significantly.

The obverse displays the American flag with an eagle and ten stars five on either side, each star representing one troy ounce. The reverse stating " Minted from the U.S. strategic stockpile silver" and "Formerly stored at U.S. assay office San Francisco 1981".
