My answer is NO.

A 100 oz bar contains twice as much silver as a 50 oz.

I like $100 bills better than 50's too...

There is two ways to look at this. If you need to liquefy your AG the 50 oz bar might move quicker than a 100 oz. Myself, I like it all as long as its Silver.

Store what you like, but in normal circumstances, 50 oz bars are an odd size and will be more difficult to move. You may be able to find someone like yourself that is into 50 oz bars that will actually pay more per ounce for an odd size bar, but most dealers will tend to shy away from them.

First, you have to define "better."

A big factor is why you own silver in the first place.

You should consider all the reasons before deciding for yourself. What is "better " for me may not be for you.

Good luck.

Imo 10 oz bars are better than both ;)

Meself, I like the PM deminations of 1, 10, and 50 ounces the best as I think they are the easiest to liquefy. In the instance that silver were to go above $100/oz then you couldn't even sell a 100oz bar to a dealer for the $10,000 limit.

If all the silver you own is in 50oz and 100oz bars, I would recommend purchasing some smaller stuff also. The one to ten ounce range is extremely liquid.
Also, take into account your reason for investing in silver. If you are waiting for inflation and then plan on selling, big bars are not that bad. If your an economic collapse type, or are betting on extreme hyper inflation, smaller is better.
With that being said, after a nice stash of small silver, I prefer 100's. Like valerb said, 50's could be difficult to sell because of their not so common size. Also, all the same size bars makes for a nice stack!!

Those of us who have to pay 15% VAT on top of a higher price and bigger premium don't wish to hear that! 955

If we can't sell 100 oz bars, then how in the hell are we going to sell thousands of one ounce rounds? I guess we'll have to load up a truck and drive to the nearest refinery.

I'm partial to 10 oz bars myself. Good size to hold in the hand, and very stackable, like giant silver dominos. They tend to be very well made, aesthetically, while 100 oz bars are often a bit rough around the edges.
