Platinum bars are gaining popularity in the 2010s as investors return to this metal. Platinum had previously seen a big drop in demand in the 2000s as prices dropped and interest in platinum fell. Recent increases in demand from various other industries have pushed prices higher and resulted in new platinum products coming to the market for buyers.
On the obverse of these 1 oz Platinum Argor-Heraeus Bars is the image of the refinery’s stamp and official name. The stamp includes the letters “AH” in a center circle with “Argor-Heraeus SA” around it and “Switzerland” below. The reverse face of 1 oz Platinum Argor-Heraeus Bars includes only the repeating image of the “AH” stamp on the surface.
Argor-Heraeus was founded in 1951 in Chiasso, Switzerland as Argor SA. Today it is known as Argor-Heraeus following a merger of ownership group UBS and the German Heraeus Group. The modern headquarters of the refinery is located in Mendrisio, Switzerland.
