Only a handful of mints around the globe offer lunar-themed design elements on gold, silver, and platinum bullion specimens. While most of these mints produce these designs on bullion coins, even fewer mints overall offer lunar animal designs on bullion bars. Argor-Heraeus is among the leaders in the production of lunar-themed gold bullion bar collections. Right now, you can get 1 oz Gold Lunar Ox Bars online from Provident Metals.
With your purchase of the 1 oz Gold Lunar Ox Bar at Provident Metals comes an individually-sealed protective card. The gold bar is housed in a capsule at the center of the packaging with an assay card around it. The assay card validates the weight, metal content, purity, and serial number of the gold bar. Included on the assay card is the signature of a certified assayer. All of the gold bars are in brand-new condition.
A powerful ox is featured on the obverse side of the 1 oz Gold Lunar Ox Bar. The ox is a powerful draft animal that has been harnessed and worked by agricultural civilizations for more than 6,000 years. In Chinese culture, the ox is a highly-valued animal for its work in agricultural settings and is prized for its hard work and reliability. This side of the gold bar also has a Chinese symbol for the ox.
The Argor-Heraeus logo is found on the reverse field of 1 oz Gold Lunar Ox Bars. Argors logo consists of two circles, with the smaller circle bearing the AH initials. The outer circle has the words Argor Heraeus SA inscribed inside. The other inscriptions on this face of the gold bar include Switzerland, 1 ounce Fine Gold 999,9, and the assayers stamp. Beneath the stamp, there is a unique serial number that is marked as a particular number out of 3,888 gold bars. For example, 0001/3888.
On the Zodiac, the Year of the Ox is second in the 12-year cycle. Each animal was assigned a position by the Jade Emperor. Each animal was assigned this position based on arrival to a meeting with the Jade Emperor. The ox would have arrived first to the meeting, but a mouse had hitched a ride on the ox to cross a raging river. Just as the ox approached the meeting, the mouse jumped off and arrived first, giving it the first year in the Zodiac.
