    Do you guys know of any tubes that will fit 1 gram silver bars or 1 gram silver rounds (bars preferably).

    I have to ask a dumb question, why would you buy silver in grams? Doesn't the price per ounce become prohibitive?

    V. Kurt Bellman Yes, I'm blunt! Get over your "feeeeelings".

    I hope he doesn't seriously believe he'll be needing them to make change, but anything's possible in a silver market where the sellers are "selling" financial apocalypse scenarios. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:o_O:vomit:

    I normally do get one ounce rounds but I just like to have some 1 gram silver bars.

    Wouldn't that be too small?

    Just drop them into a cent tube. Anything small enough to store these would likely get lost as easily as the gram bars.

    I have never bought them, but they seem like fun. In regards to an investment, their small size causes them to command a high premium, which has held over time, especally when they have a design on them. Therefore, they can still be a good investment even if the price does not reflect the melt value in my opinion.

    The premium is there for the "sell", but I seriously it is there for the "buy".

    Do they come with magnifying glasses?

    Looking on e-bay, one supplier says they are 13 mm, about the same as a silver three-cent, and a silver trime is 0.75 g

    Thanks for the info

    This dime tube is a little bit smaller it said, I would assume this works better than a cent tube?

    On an average of $2 a gram that's $40 an ounce silver. Might as well get a silver Krugerrand or two ASE"s...

    I have some 1 gram bars. I keep mine in Airtites with the foam ring. No, they don't make them that small. Instead I put 5 or so in each Airtite. I use the ones with the foam rings so they don't bang around side to side so much. This way I can also stack up my gram bars alongside coins without worrying of getting misplaced.

    Current spot price puts a gram of silver at .55 cents.

    some people collect the one gram silver bars simply because it's fun. On a whim I bought 30 of them, symbolic of 30 pieces of silver. They were of the Silver Bullet design. Now I saw that they had a design for just about anything, animals airplanes Prospectors trains planes automobiles maybe snakes I don't know green alligators and long necked geese some Humpty back camels and some chimpanzees maybe even a unicorn somewhere. it doesn't have to be all about profit or investment. Sometimes you just gotta have fun.

    31.1 grams in a troy ounce. At $2 a gram that's $62 an ounce.
