The Versatility of Silver Building Blocks: How to Use Them to Create Unique and Lasting Structures for All Ages

What are silver building blocks?

Silver building blocks are silver fractional bars with each silver bar item typically weighing a Troy ounce or less while consisting of .999 fine silver purity. Each silver block is stamped with the weight in Troy ounces (Troy oz, or OZT), and “999 Fine Silver” or “999 FS.” The most popular brand has on the bottom of the bricks the repeated monarch crown logo with a ‘P’ as the crown jewel.

Silver Building Blocks (Various)

The intent behind the silver building block bars is to have a fun and encouraging way of collecting silverbars while securely stacking them. In the industry of silver and other precious metals like gold, platinum, palladium, and rhodium, people often speak about “stacking” their metals. This refers to the literal stacking and saving of precious metals, while the silver building blocks take it more literally by stacking with interlocking parts of the designed bricks. The interlocking feature enables a collector or investor to save space in their safe, vault, or storage.

The tops of the stackable, interlocking, silver blocks have what are known as studs or knobs. These features are what connect to the bottoms of other blocks. On the bottom side of the silver blocks are what are called tubes or antistuds. The studs on top of the silver blocks are inserted into the tubes on the bottom of another silver block, securely locking them in place to allow for an interconnected design of the stack artist’s choice.

There are silver bricks that have a configuration of 2 rows of 4 studs (8 total) and 2 rows of 2 (4 total). Some silver block sets also offer silver plates which are thinner versions of the bricks that also have studs on top and tubes on the bottom to allow for interlocking and stacking.

With the continuous increase in precious metals values and the deterioration of the U.S. dollar, more people are investing in and collecting precious metals like silver building blocks. Precious metals have a natural store of value that helps an investor hedge against monetary inflation and price inflation.

It is quite common these days to see people stacking their precious metals, silver bullion, silver bullion rounds, 100 ounce silver bars, bullion coins, and silver building blocks on social media platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and X (Twitter).
