Each 1/2 oz Scotiabank Gold Bar offered in this product listing comes to you in secondary market condition. The bars are individually packaged inside of blistercards. These cards have a capsule space to secure the 1/2 oz gold bar and an assay card. The assay authenticates the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar and comes with the signature of a certified assayer. We cannot guarantee the specific condition of any Secondary Market item as we did not receive it direct from the producer. The bars could showcase flaws, wear and tear, or other detractions from handling.
Scotiabank is one of Canada’s Big Five banks along with Toronto-Dominion Bank, Royal Bank of Canada, the Bank of Montreal, and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. All five of the banks are among the 100 largest in the world, with Scotiabank ranked third in Canada and 45th in the world. Scotiabank’s ranking within Canada is based on its deposits and market capitalization.
For the obverse design element of 1/2 oz Scotiabank Gold Bars, the mint features the image of the Scotiabank logo. The design element on this face is largely clean and clear, with the Scotiabank logo of a capital S at the center with a stylized globe at its central point. Below this, there is an inscription of the bank name.
In the reverse design of the 1/2 oz Scotiabank Gold Bars is the bank name with the markings of the weight, purity, and metal content. All of the design elements are arranged down the vertical face of the bar, with the Valcambi Suisse name at the top and the weight, metal content, and purity arranged below it in order. At the very bottom is the assayer’s stamp.
Valcambi Suisse produced these gold bars on behalf of Scotiabank. The bank is a wide-ranging financial institution that operates a precious metals division known as ScotiaMocatta. Valcambi Suisse was founded in Balerna, Switzerland, in 1961 as Valori & Cambi and was once owned by Credit Suisse.
