Ohio Precious Metals was a private US mint that operated from 1974 to 2012 on its own before later merging with NTR Metals to form Elemetal. Though you can no longer purchase brand-new OPM gold bars, there are still specimens available on the market in varying conditions. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 1 oz Gold Bars from OPM online from Provident Metals.
The most common weight of gold bars is the 1 oz minted ingot. Produced by mints and refineries around the globe. Ohio Precious Metals made a name for itself producing gold bullion at its private mint location in Jackson, Ohio. Founded in 1974, it operated independently until 2012 producing gold bullion bars in varying weights.
For the obverse design, 1 oz Gold Bars from OPM come with the mint name and logo at the top. All of the inscriptions are featured in descending order down the vertical face of the bar. These include the primary oval logo above the words OPM Metals. Below that, you will find the inscriptions of 1 Troy Ounce .9999 Fine Gold. These bars have individual serial numbers assigned by OPM that use a 10-digit coding system that starts with a letter, features eight numbers, and concludes with a letter.
The reverse of 1 oz Gold Bars from OPM includes a singular design. On this side, you will only find the swirling oval of Ohio Precious Metals. This mint symbol repeats on a 45-degree angle across the entirety of the reverse design field of the bar.
Ohio Precious Metals merged with Dallas-based NTR Metals in 2012 to form Elemetal Refining. The new company continued refining gold and silver at the Jackson, Ohio, refining plant for several years. However, you will not find any newly-produced bars under the Ohio Precious Metals brand name.
1 oz Gold Bars from OPM in this listing are available in varied conditions.
