Examine it's a bar of iron [sic]

An Iron bar is a bar which can be made by using an iron ore on a furnace, which is part of the Smithing skill. Smelting Iron Ore requires level 15 Smithing. Unlike other ores, there is a 50% (0% if using Superheat item) chance the iron ore will be too "impure" to smelt into an iron bar. Upon successfully smelting an iron bar, the player receives 12.5 experience.

Iron bars can be exchanged for iron bar certificates by talking to Miles in the Draynor Village market or Watto in Zanaris. This makes trading bulk amounts of iron bars easier and faster.

Forging iron bars

Iron bars can be used for forging as part of the Smithing skill. By using an iron bar on an anvil with a hammer in the player's inventory, iron armour and weapons can be created. Each iron bar gives 25 experience when consumed to make an item.
