Gold minted ingots such as these are produced by Argor-Heraeus using a multi-step process. While cast gold bars are produced by melting gold and pouring it into a prefabricated mold that results in the final product once cool, minted ingots take more work. The melted gold is first shaped into a cast product that is then stamped into a precise shape and engraved with detailed imagery.
All of the 20 Gram Gold Argor-Heraeus Bars available in this product listing come with a protective plastic blisterpack. The sealed plastic blisterpack features a capsule to house the 20 gram gold bar and an assay card. The assay card includes the authentication information for the specific bar with the metal content, purity, weight, and serial number of the bar featured. There is also a signature from the certified assayer who authenticated the bar.
The obverse side of the 20 Gram Gold Argor-Heraeus Bar features the Argor logo with inscriptions of the bar’s weight, metal content, and purity. The bar has inscriptions arranged vertically down the face of its obverse field that include the logo at the top, the identifying markers in the center, and an assayer’s stamp at the bottom. Along with the assayer’s stamp, there is also an individual serial number.
On the reverse face of 20 Gram Gold Argor-Heraeus Bars is a blank surface. Argor has opted not to inscribe or engrave any design elements or identifying features on this side. While generally smooth, you may notice that this surface of the bar has texture lines resulting from the production process.
Argos-Heraeus was opened in 1951 in the city of Chiasso, Switzerland. Originally known as Argor SA, the company was acquired in 1973 by Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) and a later merger with the German Heraeus group formed the Argor-Heraeus refinery.
