Silver bars come in two popular forms; minted ingots or cast bars. Minted ingots are highly refined products that start out as bulk cast bars, which are then fed into a press machine that stamps out precisely measured and cut bars that have exacting standards for size, shape, and metal purity.
Products such as the 10 oz RMC Cast Silver Bar are poured from large cauldrons into preformed molds that shape the bar and ensure that the proper amount of silver purity is contained within. The bar is then dropped into water from the mold or left in the mold to cool by exposure to air. Cast bars, as a result of this simpler production method, have much lower premiums over the spot price of silver.
On the obverse of each 10 oz RMC Cast Silver Bar you will find the only engravings. These include the Republic Metals Corporation logo at the top, followed by the full name of the mint and then the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar. An assayers mark is featured at the bottom of the obverse.
There are no reverse engravings on these bars. The Republic Metals Corporation logo at the top of the obverse features a large vat from which iron is poured into the cooling mold that is featured in the center of the M in the RMC engraving below the logo.
