Each 50 Gram Istanbul Gold Refinery Gold Bar is packaged by IGR inside of tamper-evident assay card packaging. The protective packaging ensures the condition of your bar upon delivery and also provides anti-counterfeiting measures in its design. The assay card includes the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, along with the same serial number found on the bar itself.
Istanbul Gold Refinery has recently introduced new security measures for its assay card packaging designed to combat counterfeiting attempts. The tamper-evident nature of the packaging enables buyers to know immediately upon viewing the package if attempts to tamper with the bar have been made.
Moreover, the design of the assay cards includes three features of note. There are two invisible security marks which only appear when exposed to a UV light source. Secondly, there is a hologram at the bottom of the assay card with the IGR logo. Finally, there is the signature of a certified assayer on the assay card itself.
On the obverse side of the 50 Gram Istanbul Gold Refinery Bars, you’ll find a selection of important markings. Included on this side are markings which include the initials of Istanbul Gold Refinery (IGR); the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar; the IGR company logo; and also the unique, individual serial number assigned to the bar.
The reverse face of 50 Gram Istanbul Gold Refinery Gold Bars features the initials of the refinery. In this case, the “IGR” initials appear in a repeating pattern across the surface of the reverse face at a 45-degree angle.
Istanbul Gold Refinery was formed in 1996 in the city of Istanbul, Turkey. The refinery recently earned LBMA accreditation in 2011 and COMEX Good Delivery Refinery status in 2014.
