Each 1 Kilo Gold Italpreziosi Cast Bar in this product listing at Silver.com comes with individual packaging. The bars are housed in simple plastic bags for delivery. Each cast gold bar has inscriptions on just one face, flat surfaces on the obverse and reverse, and slightly rounded edges from the top surfaces to the sides.
Cast gold bars are made using traditional refining processes. The production steps take longer because the gold is first melted and then poured into molds to cool off. Once the bars have cooled most of the way, presses are used to stamp incuse design markings into the exposed surface on the obverse. These markings are often incuse, or beneath, the surface of the bar.
The obverse of the 1 Kilo Gold Italpreziosi Cast Bars comes with all of the markings associated with the bar. These markings are all arranged in portrait orientation from the top of the design field to the bottom. These include the Italpreziosi logo at the top of the design field, followed by the weight, metal content, and purity of the bars. On the reverse of the 1 Kilo Gold Cast Bar, you will find a blank design element.
Italpreziosi was founded in 1984 and has quickly grown to enjoy a position of prominence in the global precious metals market. It first launched a website in 1996 and more recently obtained Good Delivery certification from the LBMA in 2018.
