Casting has been used for thousands of years and is often referred to as also "molded" or "poured". The process involves metal being heated until it turns into a liquid form and is poured into a mold to specifically to hold an exact weight and shape.
Once the metal cools down and solidifies, it is ready for engraving or further stamping, if this is not included in the mold itself.
Minted bars tend to carry a higher price than cast bars due to further manufacturing input required for cleaner and more craftsmanship required in the finishing and embedded designs.
Generally minted bars are more visually more aesthetic to the eye, as this can also involve further manufacturing stages for polishing and cleaning.
