The cross was long associated only with a horrific form of torture popularized by the Roman Empire. The Latin cross, as an unequal cross form is known, was used by the Romans when crucifying enemies. This was done both as a form of punishment, and also as a warning to those who would rise up against the Empire in revolt or challenge it in war. The Romans would eventually use this form of punishment on Jesus Christ, leading to its adoption by the 2nd century in the young Christian church.
An ornate Christian cross is featured on the obverse side of 10 Gram Gold PAMP Suisse Cross Bars. This intricately designed cross has a distinctive pedestal base with additional crosses at each of the four endpoints and Greek crosses around the intersection of the short and long arms of the cross.
Following the death of Jesus Christ on the cross at Mount Cavalry, his body was entombed. After three days, he rose from the dead and eventually ascended into heaven to be with the Father. Centuries after his death, the fledgling Christian church adopted the cross as an official symbol that captured the death of the Lord and Savior to symbolize what was given up to assure their path to heaven.
PAMP Suisse’s logo is featured on the reverse field of 10 Gram Gold Cross Bars. This field includes the PAMP logo at the top with the weight, metal content, purity, and unique serial number featured on this side. The assayer’s mark is also found on this side above the serial number.
