Each gold bar is struck from 99.99 fine gold struck with distinction by the Swiss-based PAMP (Produits Artistiques Métaux Précieux) refinery, a popular hallmark with investors.
PAMP Suisse gold bars are refined in 99.99 percent fine gold and show great artistry in design. The obverse of the gold bar shows PAMP Suisse's logo and an assayer stamp, together with a serial number, the weight of 5 grams and the purity of the gold 99.99 percent. PAMP have led the way in producing gold bars of artistic merit, and the reverse usually shows their distinct portrait of Lady Fortuna, the Roman Goddess of luck and fortune, shown with a cornucopia. This design has become synonymous with PAMP. In addition, some PAMP 5 gram gold bars have been produced with an elegant rose design or an interpretation of Liberty on the reverse.
All PAMP gold bars come with an accompanying assay card. PAMP employs Federal assayers, who work according to the Swiss Precious Metals Control Law (LCMP) and are independent of the refinery's hierarchy, giving you total confidence in the quality and fineness of the material you purchase.
Overview of the 5 gram Gold PAMP Bar:
PAMP was founded in Ticino, Switzerland in 1977 and has since grown to become one of the leading independent refiners of precious metals in the world. Their products are held in such high esteem that they produce legal tender coins for government mints as well as bars and medals. Their commitment to quality is evident in the fact that PAMP holds more international standards concurrently than any other refinery worldwide. These include ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 17025 , OHSAS 18001 and SA 8000 accreditation.
PAMP bars are accepted as good delivery by traders and gold dealers across the globe, including the Swiss National Bank, the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), London Platinum and Palladium Market (LPPM), the Dubai Multi Commodity Center (DMCC) and the leading futures markets of COMEX/NYMEX, Chicago Metals Exchange (CME), Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM), and the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE).
The high regard in which the refinery is held is evident in the fact that PAMP is one of only three refineries in the world to have been designated a referee by the LBMA and the LPPM.
