This upcoming year (2015), the lunar calendar enters the Year of the Goat. Years that fall under this particular animal of the Chinese zodiac are marked by the achievement of many long chased dreams or goals, so to celebrate such a fortuitous occasion, the prestigious PAMP Suisse will be releasing its 2015 edition 5 Gram Lunar Goat Gold Bar. It is the 4th bar from its popular Lunar Calendar series. Each bar has been minted 5 grams of pure .9999 fine gold and is ready to ship from Silver.com in brand new condition. Bars are kept sealed in their original red decorative packets which also serve the purpose of an assay for verification purposes.
- Contains 5 grams (.16075 ounces) of .9999 pure gold.
- Minted at the PAMP Suisse in Switzerland.
- Individual bars ship in sealed plastic with an Assay card, and multiples of 25 ship in boxes.
- Obverse design features a goat design for the Chinese Zodiac series.
The front of the bar features the designated zodiac animal for 2015, the goat. This year’s celebrant is shown standing amidst the tall blades of grass that cover its meadow home. The image has been executed using a distinctly eastern flair and incorporates many of the aesthetics common to Asian art such as clean silhouettes and soft flowing lines. Further contributing to this oriental motif is the “she” or the Chinese symbol for goat that has been inscribed directly above the boisterous creature.
The back of the bar attempts to create the illusion of a three dimensional image by revealing the reverse side of the front artwork. Surprisingly, it not only portrays the back side of the goat, but the young kid it is trying to protect. The baby goat is seen grazing upon some grass as it crouches behind its mother for protection. Also engraved unto the reverse side of the bar is the PAMP Suisse logo followed by the bar’s weight, purity and serial number. Appearing at the very bottom of the bar are the words, “Essayeur Fonduer” as a seal of authenticity.
The 5 gram Lunar Goat Gold Bar is an invitation to join PAMP Suisse in their celebration of the upcoming Chinese New Year. To learn more about this bar, you can call Silver.com at 888-989-7223.
