Each of the 1 Gram Argor Heraeus Lunar Rat Gold Bars in this product listing is available to you in brand-new condition from the mint. Gold bars in this series are all individually packaged inside of sealed plastic assay cards.
The included assay card that comes with each individual gold bar features identifying information and the signature of the Certified Assayer who determined and verified the weight, purity, and metal content of the bars. On the reverse of the card is the matching serial number as found on the bar, while the obverse has a small sketch of a rat in the lower corner.
On the obverse side of the 1 Gram Argor Heraeus Lunar Rat Gold Bars is the depiction of a small rat. The intricate nature of the design shows off the rat’s fur in stylized lines with the general view of the rodent offering an overhead glimpse. At the bottom is an engraving of “2020” with the Chinese symbol for a rat in between the two “20s.”
The Year of the Rat is the first year in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese lunar calendar. The rat arrived first to the meeting with the Jade Emperor, but used trickery to make its way to the front of the line by hitching a ride with the ox and jumping off just before reaching the meeting.
For the reverse of the Argor Heraeus Lunar Rat Gold Bars, you will find the symbol of the mint at the top followed by an inscription of “Switzerland” below. Other inscriptions on this side of the bar include the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, along with a unique serial number and the seal of the Certified Assayer.
