We are very pleased to announce the launch of our second Bleyer hand poured silver bars.
After the hugely successful first round of hand poured silver charity owl bars we sold in November 2018, we can reveal that the second round of these beautiful bars are coming to Bleyer's website very soon. These new bars were once again produced for us by the talented Backyard Bullion, with proceeds of each sale going to The Barn Owl Trust charity.
The Bleyer team went to spend the afternoon with The Barn Owl Trust to hand over the donation money raised from selling the first batch of silver owl bars. Read on to learn more about why we've done this and the positive impact this will have for our charity of choice:
What makes these bars different?
Bleyer will be producing a maximum of 100 bars in this shape and design for 2019. We decided to commission another run of the same barn owl bar design to give more of you the chance to add this timeless and unique design to your stacks. We received a huge amount of positive feedback and were delighted that our first foray into handpoured silver was so well received that you requested more! The sentimental design and charity contribution makes these silver bars not only a fantastic addition to any collection but also a perfect gifts for loved ones.

We have an extremely limited mintage of these desirable bars. All bars have been hand poured, sent to the Edinburgh Assay Office for hallmarking and finished off by being antiqued and hand polished. The main difference between these and the first batch is that we decided to include the date on the bottom of the bars to differentiate editions.
What difference do these bars make?
The Barn Owl Trust is a small local charity who relies solely on donation money. £5 from the sale of every 2oz Silver Owl bar will go directly to The Barn Owl Trust to help with their conservation work. They've supplied and maintained the barn owl boxes on Bleyer's farm for many years now. The population of barn owls have been on the decline in the UK, so they do very important work in helping to maintain the population of these majestic animals. Our intention is to raise another £1000 for The Barn Owl Trust over this next year.
We've recently adopted the barn owl Baley and we encourage anyone who cares about these fabulous creatures to donate some money to the charity too. Why not bundle a barn owl adoption in with your hand poured silver bar? This package makes for a wonderful gift, be it for yourself or a loved one. You can find out more about barn owl adoption here.
Hand poured bars are stunning works of art in their own right. They are very special pieces to own as each bar is handmade, so no two pieces are ever truly the same. This means you have a unique, tactile object which gives a little oomph to your precious metal collection. These bars are not for hiding away in a vault, they are beautiful objects to display and admire. Here is Backyard Bullion himself unveiling the bars on his channel:
We are extremely proud of our bars, Backyard Bullion has done an amazing job in turning our vision into beautiful tangible pieces and we hope you love them too!
