1 oz. Argor-Heraeus Platinum Bar


Platinum is an increasingly popular precious metal for investors to buy. Though many mints and refineries introduced platinum products in the 1990s, the early 2000s saw many of those items discontinued as the demand for platinum plummeted and prices flattened. Following the Great Recession refineries and mints reintroduced platinum bars and coins to capitalize on renewed interest and rising prices.These 1 oz Argor Heraeus Platinum Bars are available to you within a tamper-evident protective package. The typical Argor Heraeus tamper-evident packaging comes with a green label that includes the name of the refinery, the metal content of the bar within, and the phrase Swiss Made. The reverse side of each assay card includes the matching weight and purity of the bar, along with the signature of a certified assayer.

Argor Heraeus was founded in 1951 in Chiasso, Switzerland as Argor SA. The company was acquired by UBS in 1973 and a merger between UBS and German Heraeus resulted in the modern Argor Heraeus founding. Today, the company operates out of a new headquarters in Mendrisio, Switzerland.

The 1 oz Argor Heraeus Platinum Bar is a perfect example of standard platinum bullion refining. The bars have no special design elements but are refined to the highest standards of precious metal production.
