There are two primary forms in which gold bars are produced. The traditional method consists of creating cast gold bars or hand-poured gold bars. This is how gold and silver bars were produced for thousands of years. The metal is melted down and poured into a prefabricated mold to create a bar with a specific shape and metal content.
A more modern alternative to cast and hand-poured gold bars is the minted ingot. A minted ingot has refined edges and detailed designs on the obverse and reverse fields. Most minted ingots are produced in the same fashion. Long, unrefined cast gold bars are produced that are fed into stamping presses that precision cut shapes for the new individual bars. Then, computer-controlled stamps engrave designs into the obverse and reverse.
On the obverse and reverse fields of the 1/4 oz Gold Bars in this product listing, you will find a wide variety of possible designs. You should note that cast gold bars typically have designs only on the face of the bar that is exposed during the cooling process. Cast gold bars have designs that are stamped into the surface of the bar in an incuse manner, meaning if you run your hands over the bar you wouldn’t feel the inscriptions. Minted ingots, on the other hand, have designs that are engraved onto the surface of the bar with raised reliefs.
