Introduction

Each bar is supplied in a plastic package, which contain certificate with a serial number and KINEGRAM technology on the back. KINEGRAM technology not only significantly decorates the ingot, but also confirms its authenticity. Argor Heraeus is one of the most famous and largest Swiss investment precious metal producers. 

Argor-Heraeus Kinebar is a gold ingot, the surface of which is covered by KINEGRAM technology - the gold standard for protecting government-issued documents and banknotes worldwide (it is a combination of a large number of regularly spaced strokes (micro-scratches) applied to the surface of gold) with an optically variable image.  It looks similar to a protective hologram, but KINEGRAM features are fundamentally different from holograms. They are highly secure, not commercially available and exclusively provided to governments. They constitute an extremely high barrier against counterfeiting, and can be authenticated via multiple methods based on human and machine inspection. Conversely, holograms are typically used for commercial and decorative applications. The technologies used to produce them are commercially available and commonly used by counterfeiters.

The KINEGRAM technology is non-holographic. It uses vector-based, specifically engineered nanostructures.

The making of a hologram preclude the creation of precise optical structures, resulting in the exhibition of the typical unspecific reflection of rainbow colors. In a KINEGRAM, the optical effects are highly precise and technically unlimited. The making of a KINEGRAM is so precise that its light reflections can be directed with perfect precision, resulting in the possibility to plan the visual appearance of a KINEGRAM to perfection.

Fact: gold price in EUR has risen 96.54% in the last 8 years. The lowest price was 1011,47 EUR/oz and the highest 2286,90 EUR/oz. Current world market price is 2173,96 EUR/oz

Minted  bars  refer  to  the  manufacturing  process  that  is  applied  to  create  them.  The  process begins  by  heating  gold  material  in  a furnace  until it  turns  to  a  molten  slurry.  During  the heating process, all unwanted impurities in the slurry are removed until only molten gold of high purity is left, most often at around 99.99%. The molten gold is then poured into moulds, usually in the shape of large bars, where it cools and solidifies. The solid gold is then inserted into  a  mill  that  rolls  the  gold  into  panels  with  a uniform  dimension.  Afterwards, the  gold panels are inserted into a blanking press that punches blanks out of the gold panels. The next step  involves  the  weighing  of  each gold  blank  to  ensure  that  it  is  neither  underweight  nor overweight and those that pass this test are then polished for them to obtain a shiny surface. The  last stage  involves the  minting  process where the  gold  blank  is  inserted into a  minting press  that  presses  its  die with  huge  force  to transfer  the  design  from  the  die  onto  the  gold blank. The result is a  minted bar. The newly  minted gold bar is then inspected before being sealed in a transparent tamper-proof protective package.
