When it comes to buying gold bars online, you will find that there are two major types of gold bars out there: minted ingots and cast bars. Minted ingots are a major part of Argor-Heraeus business model as it produces gold minted ingots for banks and traders. Provident Metals currently has 5 Gram Gold Kinebar Bar available to you for purchase online.
When you buy the 5 Gram Gold Kinebar Bars online from Provident Metals, you will receive bars that are in brand-new condition from the mint. The bars are all individually sealed by the mint inside of protective blisterpacks. The blisterpack features a capsule for the 5 Gram gold bar and an assay card. The assay card in the packaging includes a unique serial number matching that on the bar, as well as the authenticating weight, purity, and metal content.
For the obverse design of the 5 Gram Gold Kinebar Bar, the Argor-Heraeus logo is found at the top of the design field. This logo consists of a small inner circle with the initials AH inside of the circle. Around that circle is a ring with the words Argor Heraeus SA inscribed within. Below this in the center of the bar are the inscriptions of 5 g, Fine Gold, 999,9. At the bottom of the bar is the assayers mark and a unique serial number. These individual serial numbers are assigned using six-number codes.
In the reverse element of the 5 Gram Gold Kinebar Bar, you will find the images of the Argor-Heraeus logo in the center of the design field and an embossed kinegram throughout the entire design field. This kinegram is a holographic element embossed into the substrate surface of the bar. This hologram changes visual texture and color as you adjust the angle of viewing for the field.
Argor-Heraeus was founded in Chiasso, Switzerland, in 1951. The company operated independently for more than two decades before it was acquired by Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS). The company gained its current name in 1986 when a joint venture between UBS and the German Heraeus group resulted in the creation of Argor-Heraeus SA. Today, the company is headquartered in Mendrisio, Switzerland.
