    Hey guys,

    I was thinking of buying a 1kg silver bar or coin (like the 1kg Kookaburra) but I don’t really know how big 1kg of silver is.

    Last Christmas my parents gave me a safe for my coins & precious metals and before I buy it I want to make sure it will actually fit.

    I know the dimensions are usually posted on the product listing but I’m not very good at measuring things in my head.

    If anyone has a 1kg bar or coin made of silver could you please post a picture of it with a coin or hand or something for comparison?

    Thanks! ^_^

    Just thinking of my 10oz bars, I'd say if you stacked 3 decks of cards up, about that big.

    And the "googled" response: The 1 kilo silver bar is a popular size in the international silver trade. Though the price-per-gram is low, a bar this size limits your options if you ever want to liquidate little-by-little. Width: 57.15mm (2.25 inches) Length: 114.3mm (4.5 inches) Depth/Thickness: 12.7mm (.5 inches)

    What's amazing is, there are ~32 of the ASE's in that one Kookaburra.

    Wow bud221, that kookaburra is huge. A really nice looking coin indeed.

    Remember to compare the premiums. If you just want bullion the bar may be cheaper than a minted coin.

    Thanks for sharing! I was actually looking at buying the exact same coin!

    I just wasn’t sure if it would fit or if my safe is too small.

    Here is my safe:

    Plenty of room for a kilo. You could fit a few 100 Oz bars in there!

    Really? They must be alot smaller than I thought.

    I put the 1 oz American Gold Eagles in the picture as a size reference.

    I invest and collect in 10 OZ bars there
    just the right size, I have of late just
    started just investing as collecting
    premiums are just to ridiculous.
