Provident Metals offers these 250 Gram Gold Cast Bars to you for purchase in brand-new condition from the mint. Bars of this size are not available with presentation packaging from the mint, so Provident Metals will safely wrap your bar in protective packaging materials for delivery inside of a standard shipping box. Each bar comes with an assay from Argor that identifies the weight, purity, metal content, and serial number of the specimen. All cards feature a signature from an assayer.
On the obverse side of 250 Gram Gold Cast Bars is a depiction of the company logo with the identifying details of the bar. The mint logo features a small central circle with rounded AH initials from the mint, as well as an outer ring that reads Argor Heraeus SA. Below this, there are inscriptions of Switzerland, 250 g, Fine Gold, and 999,9. The assayers mark is at the bottom and is accompanied by an individual serial number that is assigned using a one-letter, five-number coding system.
The reverse field of 250 Gram Gold Cast Bars is left blank on purpose. Reverse fields on most cast bars are left blank on purpose to keep the premiums down. All cast gold bars have markings that are struck incuse into the product, meaning the design elements and markings are sunken into the surface of the bar rather than raised on top of it.
Argor-Heraeus was founded in 1951. The company started as Argor SA and operated in Chiasso, Switzerland. In 1973, it was acquired by Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS). In 1986, UBS launched a joint venture with the German Heraeus group to create the modern refinery, and in 1988 the mint moved to a new headquarters in Mendrisio, Switzerland.
