Ingots 101

Two gold bars

If you are interested in breaking into the world of buying and selling gold, you need to know about ingots. These bars are created from molds, making them easy to move and handle. If the ingot is cast, the metal is heated down to a liquid, transferred to a cast, and cooled until it becomes solid. Casting is often used to create gold bars that will be used for currencies. Ingots can also be minted, which creates smaller pieces that are usually found among private collectors. Ingots are a smart way to invest in the world of gold.
