Minting Process: The Melt
the melt

In our on-site metal processing facility, silver is melted in an electromagnetic induction furnace. A rapidly alternating magnetic field induces electric eddy currents in the silver itself, which generates enough heat to melt it. Any small amounts of impurities rise to the top of the molten metal and are skimmed off. Gold is melted in a smaller electric furnace separate from the silver.
