May 2020: Agenda & Goals
April brought showers, May brings flowers and Bet on Silver is back in forge of fire!!! This month is looking amazing for hand poured silver! After a strong April in sales, May brings over sixty-ounces of pure silver to melt! The first release of the “Support the Pour” button went fantastic with 17 poured. Also an 18 ounce order was filled, heading into the heart of May!
Here’s what to look for in the month of May:
- May blog post
- BOS Series #4
- May GAW
- Possibly a 3 ounce BOS pour!!!!!!!!!
I also want to give a huge shoutout to Steve from the Coin Junkies Group for the amazing interview he hosted on his Facebook group!
Introducing the “Support the Pour” button by Bet on Silver!
Hand crafted from .999 Fine Silver, the “Support the Pour” stamp is the second design of Bet on Silver’s young history. Take pride in owning a one troy ounce hand melted and poured piece that is unique, hand crafted, and poured in America.
Every ounce is made through the Bet on Silver process of that only time and experience can create. One ounce silver rounds are transformed into silver shot, melted in a crucible one ounce at a time, and poured into a graphite mold. From there, the button is weighed, transferred to a steel stamping pad, and instantly stamped with care and precision with the “Support the Pour” logo. After light sanding and a polish finish, the button is ready send it’s message to it’s new owner.
“Support the Pour” has two messages. The word “Support” is a reminder of how crucial it is to support our fellow neighbors, friends, family and loved ones in this uncharted time in America. With the Monopoly Man centered below the words “Support the Pour,” and above “BOS ,999 Fine SIlver,” the image represents not taking “hand-outs,” however to buy local in support of small business.
The second message is in the word “Pour” as in hand-poured silver. When you support and buy hand made crafts, you support small business, creativity, and encourage a generation of entrprenurship and responsiblity.
Take pride in supporting your local hand-poured silver artist today!

How do you value silver slabs? They sell for high premiums but when it comes down to it, and we have to crack the slab, inside is one troy ounce of silver. During a recession or pandemic, who is going to pay the high premium versus the low spot price? What happens to the value of a ASE proof or slab? What my latest YouTube Video to participate on the topic!!!

One of the special qualities about .999 silver, is that even in a time of uncertainty and with the spot price falling, silver still holds it’s true value!
Watch the latest video on my latest 2.9 ozt .999 pure silver bar! You can also check out the new Shop Now link!!!
So I started a mini-YouTube series called BOS Artifacts, which covers relics, symbols, and conversational pieces that have to do with silver and the world we live in!

This season for the Bet on Silver show I added a few wrinkles on the production side. My goal is to create about 8-10 shows for season 2, and create a relationship with the Instagram Silver Stacking Community.
There are so many ways to make silver shot. In this video I use an easy, safe, and effective technique that basically learned on my own.
