Heraeus Gold Bullion

Heraeus is a global Fortune 500 company that is recognized around the world for their high quality gold bars and state of the art precious metals refining process. The company has over 160 years of experience as a leading supplier of precious metals. Their bars are among the most popular investment products.

Heraeus fine gold bars are distributed through banks, savings banks and leading precious metal traders. Heraeus gold bars are also exempt from VAT in Europe.

Fine Gold Content

The Heraeus gold bars have a fineness of 999.9 /1000.

Production

In the production of gold bars, a distinction is made between casting and embossing. Traditionally, gold bars have been poured, since the weights of the bars were relatively high.

Nowadays smaller gold bars with a weight of 1 gram are also produced. For gold bars with a weight of 1g to about 100g, the production method is “minted” as it is more efficient for smaller weights.

The only exception is the Heraeus 100g Gold Bar, which is available in minted and cast versions.

Cast gold bars

The Casting of gold bars is done by two methods. In the first method, gold granules with a fineness of 99.99% are heated in a crucible at above 1064°C and poured into the ingot mold.

 

In the second method, the granules are placed directly in a bar form and heated in a special blast furnace so that the gold does not have to be recoated again. In both methods, the fine content, the fine weight and the manufacturer are stamped on the gold bar by a hydraulic press.

The new 500 and 1000 gram bars are rolled again after casting. This leads to a flat and uniform bar shape.

Minted gold bars

The mintage of gold bars is similar to coinage. First blanks are produced, which have the weight of the gold bar. The blanks are produced by rolling plates, sheets and strips and then formed to specification.

With a slight weight deviation upwards, the blank is manually adjusted to the exact fine weight. The last step is to mint the blank in a press so that it receives its final shape of a gold bar. The label is then added, just like a coin.

Appearance

Heraeus gold bars depict the "hand with roses" logo. The circular inscription that surrounds the logo reads "Heraeus Edelmetalle -Hanau-". Below the logo, is the weight of the bar and since 2011 the serial number is also imprinted. Above the portrait the inscription Heraeus Feingold 999.9 can be seen.

From 2001 to 2011 there is no serial number and the logo (circularly arranged lettering) bears the addition "GmbH". However, the dimensions are identical to the bars of the new version.

In 2011, the design was changed on all gold bars. Individual serial numbers with a corresponding certificate were also added.

History and Business

In 1851 the company was founded in Hanau, when the pharmacist son Wilhelm Carl Heraeus took over the business from his father. He developed the world's first process for melting platinum, using an oxyhydrogen flame technique.

In 1856 he founded the "First German Platinum Melt" in Hanau (near Frankfurt am Main). In the following generations, the business segments expanded to include new technology segments.

All gold bars produced by Heraeus from May 2011 bear an individual serial number and are given a certificate, which also contains the corresponding serial number of the bar.

The new blister packs come in a durable light grey package. The packaging makes it easy to store and protects the bars from damage.
