Goldweights are small objects cast from brass used to weigh out quantities of gold and gold dust.  They are cast using a lost-wax casting technique, wherein wax is sculpted into the desired shape and a mold is pressed around the wax model.  Then, the mold is heated and the wax drained out, leaving a void in the shape of the original wax model.  Liquid brass is poured into the mold and allowed to set before the caster cracks the mold open and retrieves the finished goldweight.
