There are two major types of silver bars produced by mints around the world: cast bars and minted ingots. Between the two, cast silver bars are the more affordable option because each specimen goes through a shorter and more simplistic production process. While all silver bars start out as cast pieces, minted ingots are cast in long pieces that are then stamped into separate shapes and engraved with design elements, typically on both sides.
Individual cast silver bars take much less work to produce. Silver is initially melted and then poured into prefabricated, individual heat-resistant molds. The molds are crafted to ensure a specific volume of silver. In this case, each mold ensures 10 Troy ounces of silver content. The silver is then left to cool until solidified within the mold.
On the obverse of 10 oz Silver Argor-Heraeus Cast Bars is a strike of the mint logo and name. All inscriptions on this face of the bar are arranged vertically down the face of the bar from top to bottom. Notable markings on this face include the mint logo and name, as well as a unique serial number. Argor-Heraeus issues two-letter, five-number codes to its cast silver bars.
The reverse side of the 10 oz Silver Cast Bar from Argor-Heraeus is blank. The mint leaves this side of the bar blank on purpose because it is typically the side that is face down in the mold during the cooling process, and therefore not accessible when stamping markings into the surface of the product. However, you may notice striations, lines, or other texture marks resulting from the settling of the silver as it cools within the mold.
These 10 oz Silver Argor-Heraeus Cast Bars are available to you with protective wrapping around the piece inside of its cardboard shipping box. All of the bars are in brand-new condition and come with an overall smooth finish.
