Istanbul Gold Refinery recently incorporated three key anti-counterfeiting measures into the design of its gold bar assay cards. There are two markers on the reverse of the assay card which are visible only under a UV light. Additionally, there is a hologram at the bottom of the card. You’ll also find a certified assayer’s signature on the reverse of the assay card.
On the reverse of all 5 Gram Istanbul Gold Refinery Gold Bars, you’ll find the image of the refinery’s initials. This repeating pattern includes the letters “IGR” set on a 45-degree angle across the entire reverse face of the bar.
The obverse of the 5 Gram Istanbul Gold Refinery bar features identifying markers engraved vertically on the bar. At the top is the refinery’s initials of “IGR.” In the middle of the design field are markers of the weight, metal content, and purity of the gold bar. The bottom of the design field includes the IGR logo, with the initials for the company surrounded by “Istanbul Gold Refinery Melter & Assayer.” A unique serial number is at the very bottom.
Istanbul Gold Refinery was founded in 1996. The refinery was the first in Turkey to refine gold to .9999 purity levels and is supported by Turkey’s government, the Turkish Government Treasury, and the Istanbul Gold Exchange. The refinery is a major provider of investment-grade gold in Turkey and across the Middle East.
