The first cultures known to work with platinum were the indigenous tribes of pre-Columbian Central and South America. Here, platinum was readily found in alluvial deposits within the curved embankments of rivers. When European explorers arrived in the New World, they found that these indigenous cultures had been working with platinum in jewelry and art for hundreds of years.
On the obverse of the 5 Gram Platinum Bar in this listing is a depiction of the Argor-Heraeus mint logo. The full mint logo, as featured here at the top of the bar, consists of two circles.
