Among the options available to precious metals investors, platinum bars represent the most robust option in the silvery-white metal. Platinum was discovered by Europeans in the 16th century, but was used by pre-Columbian indigenous tribes in the Americas as early as the 6th century BCE. Today, platinum represents a reliable alternative to gold for investors to consider. Right now, you can buy 50 Gram Platinum Bars from Argor-Heraeus online through Provident Metals.
With your purchase of a 50 Gram Platinum Bar, Provident Metals offers you an item that is in brand-new condition from the mint. Each one of these bars comes with its own, tamper-evident blistercard. The blistercards are made from transparent materials and enable you to view both sides of the bar within its capsule space. Surrounding the bar inside the blistercard is a green assay.
The obverse side of 50 Gram Platinum Bars features a design with the mint logo, weight, metal content, and purity. The Argor-Heraeus logo is featured at the top of the bar and consists of two elements. The central circle has a stylized set of AH initials that is surrounded by an outer ring with the inscription Argor Heraeus SA. Below this are inscriptions of Switzerland and 50 g Platinum 999,5. The bottom of the design element features an assayers mark.
On the reverse field of 50 Gram Platinum Bars, you will find a simple pattern that features in repeat across the bar. The design element here includes the central portion of the Argor logo, with the circle and AH initials repeating at an angle throughout the design element on this side of the bar.
Europeans first write of the presence of a metal that later became known as platinum in the 16th century. Archaeologists have found platinum within the gold-decorated hieroglyphs of some Ancient Egyptian tombs dating to 1200 BCE, but many scholars are unsure if the Egyptians knew the platinum was present in the gold. The pre-Columbian cultures living around what is now Esmeraldas, Ecuador, produced artifacts with a white gold-and-platinum alloy. The La Tolita Culture of the region used sintering to produce gold-platinum alloys in decorative art pieces.
