Cast silver bars are produced through simple production processes when compared to minted ingots. Each cast silver bar is produced individually, with melted silver poured into a prefabricated, heat-resistant mold. The mold is designed to ensure a specific weight of silver for the finished product, such as 1 Kilo for these silver bars.
The silver is poured into the molds and left to cool. Each mint has its own approach to the cooling process, with some leaving the newly-cast bar in an open mold to cool, while others are entirely enclosed within the mold. In almost all cases, cast silver bars have design strikes on only one side as a result of the designs and markings struck into the bar during the cooling process. As such, only one side of the bar is accessible.
For the obverse design element of 1 Kilo Perth Mint Cast Silver Bars, the mint uses its famed logo at the top of the bar. The Perth Mint logo consists of an oval with an elegant swan at the center. The mint name and nation of issue feature within the rim design of the oval. The only other markings on this side of the bar are the weight and purity.
Cast silver bars such as these 1 Kilo Perth Mint Bars have a blank surface. As noted earlier, this side was most likely not accessible for stamping as the bar cooled. However, you may notice some visual elements natural to the bar as a result of its cooling process. As the silver is poured into the mold and then left to settle as it cools, this can result in various textures, lines, and other striations forming naturally on the bar. Overall, however, the bars have a smooth surface with smooth edges.
These 1 Kilo Perth Mint Cast Silver Bars are available in brand-new condition. The Perth Mint bars are wrapped with protective materials for the shipping process and delivered in cardboard boxes.
