The unique weight of these gold bars dates back to the French colonial era in Southeast Asia. When the French controlled the region under its French Indochina colonial administration, the popular tael weight of the region was fixed at 100 G. However, within Vietnam, a different tael was commonly used in domestic transactions involving gold.
The tael used in Vietnam was known as the luong. It equated to 37.5 Grams of Gold. Historically, real estate prices in Vietnam were often quoted using this measurement in taels of gold rather than using the currency of the region. This was typically done to avoid issues with monetary inflation of the local fiat currency.
The obverse of 37.50 Gram Gold Vietnam Mot Luong Bars features the markings of the bar’s purity and metal content. These bars were minted in the United States and feature markings on this side that identify four separate locations in Southeast Asia: Vietnam, the Laotian capital of Vientiane, Hong Kong, and Phnom Penh.
On the reverse of 37.50 Gram Gold Mot Luong Bars, you will find an effigy of the Statue of Liberty. One of the possible designs offers a front-facing view of the famous statue representing the freedom of the United States of America. However, there are various iterations of this design that include a three-quarter profile portrait. Please bear in mind that you could get a Statue of Liberty design that does not exactly match the photos in this listing.
These 37.50 Gram Gold Vietnam Mot Luong Bars are available to you with sealed packaging. The gold bar and certificate come together in a plastic flip, with the gold bar sealed on one side of the laminate flip. The assay certificate remains in good condition, though you may notice that it has minor wear and tear from handling.
