Gold bar production in the world dates back beyond the start of the Roman Empire. There are literary pieces that refer to the first production of gold in rough, shapeless forms that were noted in the pre-Roman era of human civilization. It is believed these bars were produced in processes similar to today’s cast gold.
Ancient gold bars, although not referred to as bars at the time, were refined by melting the gold and pouring it into preformed molds. These molds, unlike those of today, were most likely made out of clay. Today, gold bars are available as minted ingots and cast gold bars, providing something for every investor.
In this product listing JM Bullion offers 100 Gram Gold Bars in various conditions from differing mints of origin. We cannot guarantee the condition of the bar you’ll receive or the mint it will have originated from. The specific gold bar you receive will depend upon availability in our warehouse when your order is fulfilled for shipment.
As such, the obverse and reverse design of the gold bars will vary. In many cases, modern cast gold bars have design features only on one side of the product. Minted ingots tend to have dual-sided designs, though one side is often dominated by engravings of the weight, purity, metal content, and serial number.
Examples of gold bars in our inventory that could possibly ship include those from PAMP Suisse and Valcambi Suisse. PAMP is arguably the most recognizable producer of gold bars in the world today. It’s Fortuna lineup is immensely popular, featuring the intricate design of the Roman Goddess of Fortune.
Valcambi Suisse is actually older than PAMP, and has humble origins as a refinery started by precious metal enthusiasts as Valori & Cambi. Today it stands among the giants of the precious metals industry.
