There are two popular forms that platinum bullion bars are offered in. Cast platinum bars are the most rustic and traditional. Platinum is heated to its liquefied stated and poured into a mold to set. The prefabricated molds are made from heat-resistant materials and have the proper shape to ensure a given weight for the finished product.
Minted ingots such as these go through further production steps. After taking on a rough, rustic shape, the platinum bar is pressed using a stamp to create a specific, refined shape. That gives these particular bars the defined edges and rounded edges. More detailed designs are also engraved onto minted ingots when compared to the simpler designs that are stamped into or laser-etched on cast bars.
On the obverse of these 50 Gram Platinum Argor-Heraeus Bars is an image of the Argor logo at the top, with the weight, purity, and metal content included. The inscriptions on this side are all arranged vertically down the face of the bar with the logo at the top, weight, metal content, and purity in the center, and an assayer’s mark at the bottom.
The reverse side of 50 Gram Platinum Bars from Argor-Heraeus includes the initials from the mint logo. This circle with the stylized, curved “AH” features across the entire field of the bar at an angle with as many as 28 of the logo impressions on this face of the bar. A hallmark of this series is the use of ever-more logos as the weight and size of the bar go up. For example, the 1 Gram bar has only enough space for one of the logos to appear.
These 50 Gram Platinum Argor-Heraeus Bars are available to you with tamper-evident, sealed blistercards. The secure cards have a capsule around the bar and an assay card surrounding that element. Each assay authenticates the individual bar with the matching weight, metal content, and purity present on the card.
