The new Religious Series from PAMP Suisse reveals symbols and emblems central to the world’s major religions. Among those religions, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism are all represented. For Christians around the world, the cross is the most recognizable symbol of the faith.

In the ancient world, the cross was largely seen through the lens of its use by the Roman Empire. While many civilizations around the world used crucifixion is a form of torture and death, it was the Romans that industrialized the rollout of its use. The Romans would punish vanquished enemies, like the slaves of Spartacus’ revolt, by crucifying the enemy in public for the world to see. Of course, the death of Jesus Christ upon the cross at Mount Calvary.
It was the latter incident that would spark a revolution in the use of the cross as a symbol of religion. Because Christians view Jesus Christ as the Messiah, his death upon the cross at the hands of the Romans eventually led to the cross being adopted as the religion of Christianity’s official symbol. Today it remains in use in churches and on national symbolism throughout the Christian world.
The obverse of 5 Gram Gold PAMP Suisse Cross Bars includes a depiction of the Christian cross. This ornate cross has smaller Greek crosses in the four corners at its center, while three small crosses at the tips of each arm on the cross. The cross in this design is set atop a small pedestal.
On the reverse face of the 5 Gram Gold Cross Bars is the PAMP Suisse logo. The mint logo uses four circles with the letters from “PAMP” above the word “Suisse.” Other markings on this side of the bar include the weight, metal content, purity, assayer’s stamp, and an individual serial number. The serial numbers are issued with one-letter, six-number codes.
