Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and thunderstorms were all natural phenomena that ancient civilizations struggled to find explanations for. Lacking the established scientific knowledge of modern societies, the citizens of the Roman Empire developed a complex hierarchy of gods and goddesses responsible for guiding emotions and conjuring natural disasters. Roman mythology is celebrated on the 5 Gram PAMP Suisse Fortuna Silver Bar. Today, you can purchase a brand new Fortuna silver bar from Silver.com. These bars are sealed in a protective assay case and contain 5 grams of 99.9% pure silver.
Fortuna was considered the goddess of fortune in Roman mythology. In ancient Roman religion, she represented the personification of luck. Her depictions were often featured wearing a veil over the face or a blindfold over the eyes. Fortuna was said to bring either good luck or bad to those who worshiped her. The father of Fortuna was Jupiter, the king of the gods. He was better known by his name in Greek mythology: Zeus.
On one side of the 5 Gram PAMP Suisse Fortuna Silver Bar is the depiction of Fortuna. She is shown in a left-profile portrait, with a blindfold over her eyes and a cornucopia on her head. The horn of the cornucopia flows down to her cupped hands, which grasp a vast fortune spilling forth from the horn.
The opposite side of the bar bears identifying markers for the Fortuna silver bar. Engravings include, from top to bottom, the corporate logo of the refinery, weight of the bar, metal content, purity, individual serial number, and the assayer’s mark.
