Gold Kinebar Bars from Argor-Heraeus are available to purchase regularly as of 1993. That was the year in which Union Bank of Switzerland and Argor teamed up to create a new hologram technology to enhance and secure its gold bars. The hologram is known as a kinegram and is embossed on the reverse field of the bars. Right now, you can purchase 1 Gram Gold Kinebar Bars online at Provident Metals.
Your 1 Gram Gold Kinebar Bar is available to purchase in brand-new condition from Provident Metals. The bars arrive inside of these individually-sealed packages direct from Argor-Heraeus and include a capsule for the bar, as well as an assay card. The assay card inside of the packaging authenticates the serial number assigned the bar, along with the weight, purity, and metal content of the item.
On the obverse face of the 1 Gram Gold Kinebar Bar is the Argor-Heraeus logo. The logo is found at the top of the bars design field. The logo consists of a small circle with a larger ring around it. Inside of the circle are the initials AH which are rounded to fill in the entirety of the circle. Around that circle is a ring with the words Argor Heraeus SA. The inscriptions included on this face of the bar read Switzerland, 1g, Fine Gold, and 999,9. There is also an assayers stamp at the bottom with a unique serial number.
The reverse field of the 1 Gram Gold Kinebar Bars comes with that same Argor-Heraeus logo in the center of the design field. You will also find the kinegram embossment on this face of the gold bars. This holographic element changes colors and visual textures as you adjust the viewing angle of the gold bar in your hand. This helps create added visual brilliance for the bars while also offering security against counterfeiting.
Argor-Heraeus was founded in 1951 as Argor SA. The company was originally located in Chiasso, Switzerland. In 1973, it was acquired by UBS. A later joint venture by UBS and the German Heraeus group created the modern Argor-Heraeus refinery that is now headquartered in Mendrisio, Switzerland.
