Argor-Heraeus has its registered office in Switzerland, and was founded in 1951 as Argor S.A. in Chiasso in the canton of Tessin. The merger with Heraeus, based in Frankfurt am Main, and Commerzbank took place in 1986 – the name Argor-Heraeus was born. In 2017 Argor S.A. was totally acquired by Heraeus.
The gold bars from Argor-Heraeus are available in different sizes, from 1 gram to 1000 grams. From 50 grams the gold bars are provided with a serial number. From 250 grams the bars are cast and stamped. As well as gold bars, Argor-Heraeus also manufactures platinum, palladium and silver bars.
The gold bars are delivered with a certificate and in blister packs – a perfect investment product which enjoys worldwide familiarity and recognition. The gold bars from Argor-Heraeus became known worldwide through the patenting of the KINEBAR™ seal on the reverse of the bars, which is impossible to counterfeit. However, this seal is very delicate, so the bars should not be removed from their packaging.
Older bars do not display the KINEBAR™ seal.
