Argor Heraeus is listed as a member of the Good Delivery Referees Panel on the London Bullion Market Association and is also ranked as a member of the Swiss Association of Precious Metals Fabricators and Sellers. The mint can trace its history back by 1951 when it was established in Ticino, Switzerland.
These 1 Kilo Argor Heraeus Gold Bars are available to you today from the cast gold lineup of products from the mint. A cast gold bar is one that typically has a refined side and one side that has rougher finishes. The side with the rougher finishes is typically the one that is not exposed during the cooling process and, therefore, not accessible for engraving.
Obverse design images on the 1 Kilo Argor Heraeus Gold Bar include all of the identifying markers. The mint logo is engraved at the top of the bar and consists of two concentric rings. The inner ring has the “AH” initials of the mint, while the outer ring has the full name of the mint engraved. Below this is the name of the nation of issue for the mint. The weight, metal content, and purity are also featured. At the bottom, you will not the assayer’s mark and the individual serial number inscribed as a series of two letters and five numbers.
As mentioned, the reverse face of the bar is blank except for the presence of lines and marks from the settling of the gold in the cast. The inscriptions on the obverse face of the bar are struck incuse, meaning the designs are sunk into the surface of the bar.
These 1 Kilo Argor Heraeus Gold Bars are available to you in brand-new condition from the mint. The bars will arrive in a plastic bag and come with an assay card. The assay validates the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, as well as its unique serial number.
