Fortuna was a goddess in Roman mythology, associated with good fortune and luck. Two of the earliest temples ever mentioned in Roman Calendars were built in honor of Fortuna. No date is known for the construction of the first temple, but the second was believed to have been built in 293 BC. Her identity in Roman culture was closely associated with a personification of chance events, and closely tied to the Latin word “virtus,” meaning strength of character.
In an effort to curb the threat of counterfeit precious metal products, PAMP Suisse developed its unique Veriscan technology to help authenticate its gold bars. As bars are minted, their surface is scanned to create a unique fingerprint, of sorts, for the bar. That unique identity is associated with the QR code located on the bar’s assay card, which can be scanned by purchasers to verify its identify.
On the obverse side of the PAMP Suisse Gold Fortuna 10 Gram Bar is the image of Fortuna, with a cornucopia atop her head bearing bountiful wealth. With a blindfold over her hands, she manages to capture the wealth from her cornucopia in her clasped hands. The reverse side includes engravings of the bar’s weight, metal content, and purity, as well as the corporate logo, assayer’s mark, and individual serial number for the product.
