SilverTowne LP was founded in 1949 by Leon Hendrickson, and grew from a small coin shop to become one of the largest retail bullion and precious metals dealers in the country. What most folks don’t realize, however, is that SilverTowne produced a very limited and relatively short-lived run of poured silver ingots beginning in 1973, mostly serialized, that are just now gaining attention in the collector world.
Based on our extensive serial number database, we have conclusive evidence that SilverTowne used a single serial number run that was shared by all ingot sizes without duplication, with a total of only approximately 75,000 ingots produced nearly 50 years ago. Without doubt, a high percentage of these ingots have been melted over the years. Please note that the serial ranges below are shared between multiple sizes of ingots, so actual mintage numbers will be less than the span of the range, and to be sure, many did not survive the great melts so actual surviving examples are likely far less.
Today, SilverTowne Mint produces what we call “retro” ingots in 5oz, 10oz, and kilo weight class that in many ways resemble the vintage ingots shown below, but without serial numbers. We often field inquiries from collectors regarding these newer examples, as they often confuse them with vintage pieces. Change mac address kindle fire. The giveaways to us are the newly poured complexion, cooling bubbles and uncharacteristic surface texture compared to vintage ingots, and the lack of a serial number. Examples can be found on the SilverTowne.com website and often on Ebay.
|[SilverTowne Hallmark] [5 OZ.] [.999 FINE]||[Serial Number Assignment]||1st series 5oz class ingot produced by SilverTowne. Ingots of early serial number assignment demonstrate a plain reverse while ingot 10068 demonstrates a lined reverse. The serial number assignments for these 1st series ingots were random throughout the range. This 1st series ingot measures approximately 52.39mm x 19.05mm. Size differences between all three series are demonstrated in the photo below, with 1st series being decidedly more wide than the others.||00050|
|[SilverTowne Hallmark] [5 OZ.] [.999 FINE]||[Serial Number Assignment]||2nd series 5oz class ingot produced by SilverTowne. These ingots were produced in both lined-reverse and flat-reverse throughout the serial number range, both pictured. This 2nd series ingot measures slightly narrower than the 1st series, at approximately 49.21mm x 19.05mm. SilverTowne used many slightly different casting moulds and cooling trays in their production of these ingots. In an All Engelhard case study of 100 2nd series ingots, we found 30 examples with inverted serial numbers of random serial range assignment. This suggests the inverted serial assignment was perhaps a production oversight, though not terribly uncommon. Mintage estimate on these inverted serial number examples is <2,250 of the total <7,500 produced.|
It is rumored that three  5oz class ingots were erroneously stamped with serial number on the obverse, while the hallmark, weight class and purity stamps were placed on the reverse. This is demonstrated in the photo of ingot 00052, below. Ingot 04813 has also been documented to show this reverse stamping anomaly. It is also rumored that a few 10oz class ingots were stamped in similar variation, though we have not yet observed such an example.
