For Christianity, the cross is a symbol of the torture and execution of its messiah, but is also a symbol that has been adopted by the faith as an official symbol. Beginning in the Romanesque era of architecture, the cross became more than a simple symbol, it became a guiding framework for the design and construction of religious buildings throughout Europe.

There are countless variations on the Christian cross that have been used throughout the past two millennia. As early as the 2nd century AD, the cross was associated with Christianity in both positive and negative lights. Some early Christians adopted the cross as a symbol of the faith, even while others thought it was too closely associated with the torture and death of crucifixion. Before Christians began to adopt the symbol of the cross, the Roman Empire still used it as a symbol of anti-Christian feelings within the empire.

The obverse face of the 1 oz Gold PAMP Suisse Cross Bar includes a depiction of the Christian cross. This Romanesque depiction of the cross aligns with many of the churches that were built throughout Europe starting in the 6th century. To align with the Christian faith, Romanesque architecture resulted in the construction of churches that, if viewed from overhead, formed the shape of a large cross.
On the reverse side of 1 oz Gold Cross Bars, you will find the PAMP Suisse logo and several other markings. The PAMP logo features those four letters inside of individual, randomly stacked circles with the word “Suisse” below.
