Why this type of Baird & Co?
Minted bars are a beautiful asset to own the finishing process makes them more attractive and some manufacturers add an extra level of security by putting minted bars in plastic security cards.
The minting process creates a bar that is cleaner, straighter and perhaps more fitting of the image that many of us have for gold bars. It allows for more intricate designs, but it also requires a little more time, effort and money, which is why minted bars carry a higher premium than cast bars.
