I like Monarch bars. Nothing wrong with them at all.

Here,s another JM poured bar i just picked up to add to my 10 OZ collection
I was going to polish this up but i think i will leave it alone the Patina is just awesome
You and your shiny, leave it be
The patina adds to the cool factor.
For sure, it looks very rustic so not going to touch a thing.
I don't have any silver bars, just this gold one that was purchased in 1979 direct from the Nevada City Mint. Not sure if they remain in business.
Super nice piece !!
Is that 5 pennyweight, + 4 grains? 4 grains over a 1/4 Troy ounce?
Yes. It is a is bit over 8 grams
I have never seen weight described that way, very unique !
Here's a really cool hand poured 5 ounce round that a dealer here in Portland is starting to make. He's calling them Pour'dland after the city. The flow lines he's getting are really nice.
Those are really cool so do they come in different sizes ?
And whats the premium over spot ?
Yeah, he's doing 1oz, 3oz, 5oz and 10oz. He's asking spot plus around $3.00 per ounce. He's also working on a hand poured State of Oregon shaped bar that I think will be around 6oz. He showed me an unfinished one, and I really want to get one of those.
I'm impressed at how well they are coming out. I tried to do some of my own and they were horrible. Lol
Those look pretty cool.
C'mon, show us.
I think Monarch, like other refiners want to satisfy there customers ! so offering
This program gives piece of mind to buyers of there products
I'm a YPS guy...started buying them in 2012 when he did it as a hobby and have continued to do so to this day. I have between 300 and 400 ounces of bars with serial #3.

This is one I commissioned...these are the prototypes and the bottom one went into production...maybe I'll put up some more later
Please do PP.
If I ever wished to get into counterfeiting, hand poured bars would be my entry. As you mentioned, every one can be close to unique. so there are no markers to indicate origin. I suspect there are already many of these are in play already, as most people just store them, and the marking are close to be in the range of ability of an amateur artisan. I have never seen a video of a company making hand poured bars, and I notice that the weights all seem to be rounded to whole ounce, which would be amazing to me if actually poured by hand. Not trying to rain on the parade, as it matters not to me, but I would have concerns. Jim
