Scottsdale Mint is one of the many private American mints operating in the United States. Like its competitors, the Scottsdale Mint produces a wide variety of bullion and collectible precious metals. Don’t mistake Scottsdale Mint as “just another mint” though. Its catalog of products not only includes legal tender silver bullion coins and collectible proof coins, but also a range of stunning gold bars for sale. Below, you will find more information on some of the many Scottsdale Mint gold bars available through JM Bullion.
The most popular option among gold bars listed online is the 1 oz weight. Scottsdale Mint offers investors its own branded 1 Troy oz gold bar with the company logo on one side and the combined logos of Scottsdale Mint and its production partner, Argor-Heraeus on the other side. These bars offer the latest in security features for gold bullion investors.
Each of the individual Scottsdale 1 oz Gold Bars is packaged inside of a tamper-evident Assay Card package. The mint uses encrypted barcodes and holographic design elements on the assay card to boost the security of the gold bars. There is an added layer of security courtesy of synthetic DNA. The custom holographic design elements and synthetic DNA are designed to alert you with simple visual cues if your bar’s packaging has been opened or otherwise tampered with.
The Scottsdale 1 oz Gold Bar features .9999 pure gold and distinctive designs for the obverse and reverse:
In 2017, the Scottsdale Mint joined the craze by releasing a series of Chinese Lunar Calendar gold bars. Each 1 oz gold bar contains .9999 pure gold and features a distinctive obverse design meant to depict the specific animal featured on the Zodiac for that particular calendar year. Scottsdale Mint issues the bars with a limited mintage of only 10,000 bars per design, a unique approach for a series of gold bullion bars.
Individual bars in this series are sold inside of Certi-Lock assay cards with all of the same security features included in the assay card packaging of its standard Scottsdale Mint 1 oz Gold Bars. The production of the Scottsdale Lunar Gold Bars was, again, a partnership between Argor-Heraeus and the Scottsdale Mint. The reverse side of each bar includes the same combined logo of Scottsdale and Argor-Heraeus, with identifying markers inscribed on this side that include the weight, purity, metal content, and an assayer’s mark.
The obverse side of the bars varies with each release year and combines the physical features of the animal from that year’s Zodiac with Chinese linguistic characters. Examples of designs released to date include:
Scottsdale Mint is located in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale, Arizona. The mint produces investment-grade bars, legal tender currency for various nations, and collectible pieces.

The mint is an ISO 9001:2015 Certified company and follows ASTM International Standards for purity.
