Classic minted ingots from Argor-Heraeus are among the most popular with those buying gold online. The gold bars available as minted ingots from Argor-Heraeus come in the classic form and as Kinebar Bars. The Gold Kinebar includes a piece of technology on the reverse that was developed exclusively for Argor-Heraeus and is applied to the reverse of its minted ingots. Provident Metals currently has 100 Gram Gold Kinebar Bars available to you for online purchasing.
When you purchase a 100 Gram Gold Kinebar Bar through this Provident Metals listing, each one of the bars comes with individual packaging. The bars in this series are packaged inside of individually sealed blisterpacks that include a capsule at the center and an assay card around the capsule. The assay card includes authentication information regarding the weight, purity, metal content, and serial number of the bar. There is also an assayers signature on the card.
For the obverse design field, the 100 Gram Gold Kinebar Bars feature design elements that identify the major features of the bar. The most prominent of these is the mint logo for Argor-Heraeus. This includes a central circle with stylized AH initials inside and a rim around this that reads Argor-Heraeus SA. The other inscriptions on this side include Switzerland, 100g, Fine Gold, 999.9, and the individual serial number. The serial number comes with a six-number code and the stamp of a certified assayer.
In the reverse design element, 100 Gram Gold Kinebar Bars display the one-of-a-kind kinegram. The term kinegram refers to the Kinebar technology that uses a holographic element embossed on the substrate surface of the bar to create visual contrasts and a layer of security for the bar. This embossed element features the Argor-Heraeus logo within its design and changes visual textures and color patterns as you change the angle of viewing for the bar.
Argor-Heraeus was founded in Chiasso, Switzerland, in 1951. The company was originally known as Argor SA. It was acquired by Union Bank Switzerland in 1973 and became Argor-Heraeus SA in 1986 following a joint effort to form a modern bullion refinery with the German Heraeus Group.
