The very first bars ever refined by human civilizations were simple products meant solely to offer a means of storing wealth in gold. Gold was melted down into shapes for easier storage, transport, and use in transactions. Long before stamping presses and computer-controlled engraving machines, humans were making gold bars in rough shapes with markers stamped into the surface.
Today, you can still find gold bars for sale that are refined in this manner. While minted ingots, a popular modern form of gold bullion bars, feature intricate designs and sharp, detailed shapes, cast bars remain a simpler option. A cast gold bar maintains a lot of appeal among investors because the simpler process often results in lower premiums compared to minted ingots, and makes for the ideal stackable, storable form of gold.
The obverse face of these 1 Kilo Gold Asahi Bars includes the only markings you will find on the specimens. The Asahi Refining logo is featured at the top of the bar, with the full company name inscribed below that. The center of the design field is blank, with the weight, metal content, and purity featured below. At the very bottom, you will notice an individual serial number assigned to this bar. The reverse field of the bar has been left blank by Asahi Refining.
Based out of Tokyo, Japan, Asahi Refining has a history that dates back over 200 years in the refining industry. Its modern operations consist of three refining facilities on three different continents and a global footprint that includes locations outside of Japan in Santiago, Chile, Mexico City, Mexico, Toronto, Canada, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Miami, Florida.
