Poured or Cast Bars: These types of silver bars are made by pouring molten silver into a mould, or cast, with the desired shape. Once the molten silver cools and solidifies, it is removed from the mould and weighed to ensure it contains the exact amount of silver. The cast bar is then stamped with the name of the refiner, its purity and gross weight. Alternatively, a serial number may be stamped on the bar for identification and authentication purposes.
