This 10 ounce cast bar from Asahi Refining is a great way to add some low-cost, high quality gold to your collection. Thanks to the historic relevance of the recently acquired Johnson Matthey, and their own extensive connections to the financial world, the Asahi brand has hundreds of years of collective experience behind it, which is why this is one of the finest 10 ounce gold bars on the market.
This 10 oz gold bar was created through a process known as “pouring” or “moulding”. This gives the bar a rustic look, and because of minor imperfections in the pouring process, it ensures that every bar is unique. Unlike the minting process, there are only a couple of steps involved with creating poured bars. The gold is first heated until it is liquid. It is then poured into moulds designed to hold a certain quantity of gold, and to mould it to a specific shape.
This is a simpler, quicker and cheaper process than minting. It is not pressed to a predefined shape, it is not struck, there is no luster added and the dimensions are not scrutinized. Because of this, poured bars are often sold at closer to spot price, perfect for investors interested purely in the intrinsic value of precious metals, and also for those who appreciate a rustic appearance.
This bar contains 10 troy ounces of gold, refined to a purity of .9999, which is one of the purest forms found in commercial gold bars.
There are very few markings on these Asahi gold bars, and simple elegance is the theme here. They have a matte finish, which aids with the overall rustic aesthetic, and they also include details that indicate the weight and the purity of the bar, as well as the Asahi SLC stamp. These inscriptions are not struck or laser engraved onto the surface of the bar, as is the case with many minted bars and even with some cast bars. Instead, they are simply stamped onto it, an addition that further adds to its unassuming quality, and one that also helps to keep costs down and to ensure that this bar remains as close to spot price as possible.
The bar itself has a smooth and slightly abrasive feel, with rounded edges.
