When I opened the Youtube link, I thought I watched an old documentary film. To my surprise, the video just done recently. I don't know why they still doing it "by hand", their technology looks like in the 50s.

This is not a mint striking coins, but a private plant, making stamped bullion bars. Their cost is much higher than that of a mint, but their margin also.

I guess the bars are struck in prooflike quality: four slow strikes, but no evidence of polishing the die in the clip and no effort to keep the bars apart.
