The vast majority of gold bars produced today are available in two different types: minted ingots and cast bars. The simplest production process results in a final product known as a cast bar. In this process, melted gold is poured into pre-molded casts that are designed to allow for a particular volume/weight of gold inside the product.
Cast bars are then left to cool in place in the mold or dropped into cooling tanks to complete the process. Minted ingots start off in the same manner as large strips of cast gold, but are then fed through computerized stamping equipment that cuts out precisely shaped bars with certain designs, and a predetermined weight and purity.
In this product listing, 500 Gram Gold Bars are available to purchase from JM Bullion in varied condition. You could receive a bar that is in brand-new shape, or it could feature a variety of minor flaws. JM Bullion cannot guarantee the condition of the bar you receive as specific products are determined by availability in our warehouse when your order is fulfilled for shipping.
When it comes to designs, there are many potential gold bars you could receive. Credit Suisse, PAMP Suisse, and the Perth Mint are just a few examples of major refiners of gold bars. Most Perth Mint gold includes the mint’s swan logo along with identifying markers and an individual serial number as the primary design.
PAMP Suisse on the other hand is known for its popular and diverse Fortuna lineup. All of the bars in this selection feature the left-profile portrait of Fortuna, the Roman goddess of fortune and luck. This design is available in gold, silver, platinum, and palladium, with weights ranging from 1 Gram up to 100 Troy oz.
As with the condition, the specific design you find on the obverse and reverse fields of the 500 Gram Gold Bar you receive is determined by availability in our warehouse at the time your order is fulfilled for shipping.
