In 2012, the prestigious PAMP Suisse of Switzerland debuted its exciting Lunar Calendar series with the release of this 1 oz Dragon Silver Bar. This stunning bar commemorates the “Year of the Dragon,” with an embossed image of 2012’s lunar new year celebrant. It has been finely crafted from 1 troy oz of .999 fine silver and comes encased in a red plastic packet for both decorative and security purposes. All Dragon Silver Bars are guaranteed to arrive in newly minted condition along with a certified Assay for verification purposes. As a further means of identification, the bar’s vital information has also been printed unto the sealed plastic packet.
- Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
- Minted at PAMP Suisse in Switzerland.
- Design features the dragon from the Lunar Series.
- Ships in an assay for added protection.
Shown on both sides of the silver bar is 2012’s designated zodiac creature. The front of the bar depicts the fabled dragon, winding itself around a smooth marble pillar. From the texture of its scales to the expressive details of its face, viewers are certain to appreciate the whimsical rendition of this mythical being. Engraved unto the lower portion of the column is the Chinese symbol for dragon, “long.”
To create the illusion of a three dimensional image, the back of the bar reveals how the original image would look like from the reverse side, including the obscured portions of the dragon’s body and the opposite side of the column. Inscribed unto this side of the column are the bar’s vital information. At the top of the column is the PAMP Suisse logo, while in between the dragon’s leg and the first two coils of its body are the bar’s weight, purity and serial number, respectively. On the very bottom of the pillar, by the dragon’s tail, are the words “Essayeur Fonduer” as a seal of authenticity.
