When it comes to alternative precious metals, platinum is the first metal many investors look to for diversification. A diverse precious metals portfolio can include gold, silver, and platinum, with each metal offering its own upside. With demand for platinum growing in other industries and supplies limited, the silvery-white metal is becoming more attractive to investors. Provident Metals now has 100 Gram Platinum Bars available to purchase online.
When you purchase these 100 Gram Platinum Bars from Argor-Heraeus, Provident Metals offers each piece with its own blistercard. The bars are sealed inside of these blistercards with tamper-evident seals for security. The bar is housed in a capsule within the card, ensuring that it is protected from any damage. The included green assay card offers authenticating information on the bar, including its weight, purity, and metal content. All assay cards feature the signature of a certified assayer.
The Argor-Heraeus logo is a prominent feature on the obverse of 100 Gram Platinum Bars. The design features a small, central circle with the stylized AH initials of the mint that curve with the edge of the circle. Around this is a ring that has the words Argor Heraeus SA inscribed. The other inscriptions on this side read Switzerland, 100 g, Platinum, and 999,5. The bottom of the design field includes an assayers mark.
In the reverse design of 100 Gram Platinum Bars from Argor-Heraeus, you will find a repeating pattern. This repeating pattern depicts the AH initials from the obverse logo design. The initials design repeats across this side of the bar at a slight angle.
The earliest evidence of human use of platinum comes from Egyptian burial tombs around 1200 BCE. However, many scholars believe the gold-and-platinum hieroglyphs that adorned boxes in the tomb werent necessarily made to include platinum. Scholars believe that the Egyptians may not have realized the platinum was in the gold or recognized what it was. Pre-Columbian indigenous tribes in the Americas produced gold-platinum artifacts that it is believed were created through a process known as sintering, wherein heat is used to compact metals together using heat and pressure without melting the metals to liquefaction.
