When you purchase gold cast bars, you will find that cast products are more affordable at any given weight than a minted ingot. The primary reason for this is the amount of effort that goes into producing cast bars compared to minted ingots. A gold cast bar consists of gold that was melted and then poured into a preformed mold. The gold is left to cool and set in the mold, and simple markings are stamped into its surface.
Minted ingots, on the other hand, start as simple cast bars and are stamped into more refined shapes. 3D designs are engraved onto the surface of the bars during the production process. Unlike cast bars, minted ingots typically have design elements on both sides. The result is a higher premium for a minted ingot, making cast gold bars ideal for investors looking to diversify their gold holdings.
The obverse side of the 250 Gram Gold Argor-Heraeus Cast Bar features all of the inscriptions you will find on these products. At the top of the bar’s design field is the Argor-Heraeus logo. This logo consists of a small circle with “AH” initials inside and the full name of the mint in a ring around the circle. The next inscriptions on this side include the nation of issue, the weight, the metal content, and the purity of the bar. Near the bottom of the design field is the assayer’s mark and a unique serial number. Serial numbers in this series are assigned using a one-letter, five-number coding system.
On the reverse face of the 250 Gram Gold Argor-Heraeus Cast Bar is a blank field. Design markings on gold cast bars are struck incuse into the surface of the product, rather than being engraved onto the surface in 3D relief.
