.9999 Fine Gold
If you counted four nines when you read the fineness of this gold bar, then you read correctly! This bar was produced by the Perth Mint in Australia, which has been in operation since 1899 and is known throughout the world for producing extremely fine gold, silver, and platinum. The history and reputation of the Perth Mint are large factors to consider when you have the opportunity to purchase bullion from them.
Bar Art and Images
The front of this beautiful Perth Mint gold bar features their classic depiction of a swan, both on the bar itself and the packaging. The front of the packaging reads THE PERTH MINT AUSTRALIA at the top, and THE PERTH MINT TAMPER-EVIDENT CASE on the bottom. The front of the bar has the words THE PERTH MINT AUSTRALIA, 99.99%, PURE GOLD, and 1 OUNCE. Of all the easily recognized gold bars from well-known mints, gold bars from the Perth Mint are some of the best looking.
The back of the packaging is where the assay certificate is located, in the upper left corner. The back of the bar has a great kangaroo pattern with a superb finish.
Perth Mint Gold Bars
These bars are classic choice of stackers and they are easily recognized by anyone who is familiar with bullion. Gold from the Perth Mint is unquestionable when it comes to quality, unlike some private mints that have not been operating long enough to develop a strong reputation. One interesting thing that you might like to know about the Perth Mint is that they actually produced the finest gold the world has ever seen in 1957, which was .999999 fine. However, if someone were to question the quality of this bar, that’s where the assay certificate comes in handy.
Sealed With the Assay Certificate
Just in case the legendary reputation of the Perth Mint isn’t enough, you can always trust the assay certificate that is included in the packaging of the bar. These bars will arrive sealed, and they are meant to stay that way. That’s why the certification is right on the back of the packaging. Since the assay certificate is part of the packaging, you don’t have to worry about it getting separated from the bar either. If you take a look, you will see the gold content, fineness, minimum gross weight, a unique serial number, and the signature of the Chief Assayer of the Perth Mint.
On top of the advantages offered by this bar coming from Australia’s Perth Mint, bullion bars are very easy to store or trade. They don’t take up much space and can easily be kept in a safe in your home or a safety deposit box. Order a gold bar from the Perth Mint for yourself; you’ll be glad you did!
