that a gold bar is gold that has been casted or minted into objects of various sizes, shapes, purities and weights? The shapes can be rounded, angular or more complex, but the most common are cuboids and truncated pyramids. Bars can have various degrees of purity, but are usually almost pure gold. The weight of a bar – expressed using various weight standards (usually grams and multiples thereof, troy ounces or regional units such as don, baht, tael or tola) – can also differ.
