Gold bullion rounds represent a small segment of the broader gold industry. The dominant options are gold bullion bars and gold bullion coins. Gold rounds are produced by private mints with dimensions and visuals similar to that of gold bullion coins. In fact, just like with silver rounds, the primary difference between gold coins and gold rounds is the legal tender status of each piece.
While gold coins are round and available in common weights of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz, these items all have a legal tender status. In many cases, the face value is noted on the coins. Gold rounds are round in shape and come in the same sizes, but have no face values and no legal tender status.
On the obverse side of 1/2 oz Scotiabank Gold Rounds is the Scotiabank logo at the center. The company logo was designed to reflect the global reach of Scotiabank. The logo consists of a stylized, swooping capital “S” with a globe at the center. The globe reflects the fact that Scotiabank has branch locations in Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, and parts of Asia. The inscriptions on this side are limited to the bank name and purity of the round.
The reverse face of Scotiabank Gold Rounds comes with the same Scotiabank logo in the center of the design element. This side also has markings of the gold purity, denoted in two different ways, along the rim of the design field. Other inscriptions identify the mint that produced these gold rounds.
Scotiabank is often referred to as the most international bank within Canada. Its status as one of Canada’s Big Five banks makes it a major player in the banking industry. In addition to being ranked among the Big Five, it is individually the third-largest bank in Canada.
These 1/2 oz Scotiabank Gold Rounds are available to you in protective packaging.
