When you look to buy gold bars online, you will find that the most common options are minted ingots and cast gold bars. Minted ingots undergo more steps in the production process, while cast gold bars made in the modern era are produced in a manner similar to how humans have refined precious metals for thousands of years. Whether you’re looking to invest in minted ingots or cast bars, the Perth Mint of Western Australia has options for you to consider.

Cast bars are produced without much deviation from the historic processes that have been used for thousands of years. After gold bullion is melted down to its rawest form, it is poured into prefabricated molds made of fire-resistant materials. The molds take whatever shape the mint of issue designs to ensure that the finished product has a set weight and level of purity. As the bar is left to cool, inscriptions are stamped into the bars at a certain point.
All of the 1 oz Gold Perth Mint Cast Bars offered in this Silver.com listing come in plastic flips to house individual bars or sheets of 78 gold bars to house multiples. All of the gold bars are offered in secondary market condition. The bars have a slightly domed obverse field with a smooth, mirror-like finish and a flat reverse surface with more of a matte visual. The reverse also features some of the natural bubbles, striations, and other lines that form as the gold cools within the mold.
The obverse side of 1 oz Gold Cast Bars includes the stamped image of the Perth Mint logo. For decades now, the Perth Mint has used the swirling swan as its logo. The stylized, artistic image of the swan includes a long neck that sees the neck and head form an “S” shape as ornate feathers swoop up behind the figure of the swan.
On the reverse face of 1 oz Gold Perth Mint Cast Bars, you will find an image of simple text inscriptions. These markings identify the weight, purity, and mint of issue for the bar, as well as the individual serial number assigned to the bar. The Perth Mint capped mintage at 15,000 for these cast gold bars and issues a seven-number serial code from 1 to 15,000, with all serial numbers starting “00.”
