When buying gold bars from the Perth Mint, it’s important to know the difference between minted ingots and cast bars.

  • Minted Ingot: These bars start as a “blank.” A blank is a piece of metal that is in the shape of a bar and coin but is smooth with no design elements. A machine then uses thousands of pounds of pressure to stamp a design into the blank.
  • Cast: Cast bars harken to how early civilizations made gold bars. Gold is poured into a cast, or a mold, which is then heated allowing the gold to form into the shape of the mold. Once cooled, it is removed from the mold and stamped with design elements, typically on just one side of the bar.

The Perth Mint offers a unique certificate program for investors and corporations. This program allows you to purchase gold bars, however, they will be stored in secure Perth Mint vaults giving you peace of mind about where your investment is. Buyers receive a certificate of ownership but do not have physical possession of the gold bar.
