Bullion Bars come in 3 main types – cast minted or extruded. The choice is ultimately a personal one with each having its own advantages. Some people prefer cast as it is the cheapest form and many will argue harder to forge than a minted bar. Metal purity is the same. Whilst at a price premium others prefer the beauty and precision of a minted bar many of which come wrapped in protective coating and with certificates or numbers providing further comfort to some. Extruded bars are rarer and in essence form a hybrid between cast and minted with the cost premium sitting in between as well. Bars are considered investment grade if they have a recognised hallmark (brand) weight (in Troy Ounces_ gram or kilograms) and purity (eg 9999 or 99.99%).
