CoinWeek IQ is an ongoing series of exclusive videos that go in-depth into important numismatic topics and feature many of the hobby’s leading experts and personalities.
In this exclusive video, we return to Vienna, Austria to visit our friends at the Austrian Mint to pay a visit to the melting room. Once there, our cameras captured the process by which gold is melted, poured, cooled and molded into a long & thick gold ingots that will be further processed and turned into a 2,200-pound pure gold coin strip.
It’s an amazing visual, which is made even more impressive when you consider the value of the gold in the melting pot. One 2,200-pound gold coin strip coil has a market value of over 40 million dollars.
