RMC combines the beautiful designs of silver rounds (in some cases) with the investment value of silver and gold bars. Silver.com is proud to carry a variety of RMC products, ranging from cast and minted ingots to intricately designed silver bars.
With the exception of modern machinery being introduced, cast silver bars are largely produced in much the same fashion that silver and gold bars have been struck for thousands of years. RMC cast silver bars have all the hallmarks of traditional silver refining, but are available to you for purchase as secondary market products.
These cast silver bar are still produced by heating silver to its melting point and then pouring the molten metal into a pre-formed cast that ensures the proper weight and metal content are achieved based upon the design and shape of the cast itself. The bars are then simply left to air cool inside the cast or dropped into a vat of cold water to cool them faster.
The obverse of the 5 oz RMC Cast Silver Bar features all the engravings you’ll find on these investment-grade options. At the top of the obverse you’ll find the image of the RMC logo, which features a molten iron bar being dumped from a vat above the “RMC” initials into a cast within the “M” of the logo.
Below that are the engravings of the full refinery name, “Republic Metals Corporation,” and the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar. There is also an engraving of the assayer’s mark on the bar at the bottom of the design field.
