Highland Mint is a private owned mint that was founded in 80’s and located at Melbourne, Florida. They are popular for the many maximum quality precious metals they manufacture with their high-tech equipment. The 5 oz silver bar is another popular masterpiece from this precious metal manufacturing company. This amazing looking silver bar is a favorite among numismatics and those who invest in the precious metals market. Since the silver bar has a composition of 99.9% pure silver, the intrinsic value of the bar has the same market value as that of spot silver. The Highland Mint Silver bar weighs 5 troy ounces and has a purity level of .999 while having a thickness of 7.7 mm.

The design on the silver bar is quite uncommon. The obverse of the bar features the image of the Walking Liberty as designed by Adolph Weinman in 1916. Beneath this design are inscriptions reading “Five Troy Ounces” and “FIINE SILVER .999”. These two inscriptions are placed on top of a big inscription of the figure 5. Finally, there is a “Made in U.S.A” inscription on the far bottom of the silver bar. The reverse of this silver bar has a simple waffle print design. All the products of Highland Mint have the “HM” mark that represents Highland Mint, and the 5 oz silver bar is no exception. There is another form of this particular coin that has the face of Lady Liberty engraved on the obverse instead of an image of Lady Liberty walking. The face of Anne Williams, reputedly the most beautiful woman in America (at the time the design was made) was used to represent the face of Lady Liberty. But apart from the different depictions of Lady Liberty, both bars have every other design in common, including the reverse design.

In addition to its wide recognition by coin collectors and silver investors around the world, the 5 oz Highland Mint Silver bar is also recognized by IRS and can be used as a form of savings for IRA accounts.
