Introduction

Tavex is pleased to offer the 2024 PAMP Lunar Year of the Dragon 5 gram 9.999 fine gold bullion bar. Manufactured by PAMP, a world renowned Swiss precious metals refinery accredited by the Swiss Central Bank and the LBMA. This new series of minted bullion bars not only celebrate each Lunar New Year, beginning with the 2024 Year of the Dragon, but also tell legendary stories related to each of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac - starting with the Legend of the Azure Dragon.

As guardian of the east, the Azure Dragon is a harbinger of the coming spring season, and is said to control rain, essential for bountiful harvests.

The obverse design depicts each of the twelve animals of the lunar cycle as a large star encircling the new moon. Throughout the day, a two-hour window of potency is allotted to each animal, and the dragon, which places fifth clockwise, is at its most powerful between the hours of 7 and 9 a.m. Its zenith is marked with Chinese characters that translate as 8 a.m.

A brilliant red CertiPAMP™ assay card and accompanying envelope presents each annual ingot as the ideal New Year gift! The quality of this gold bar is peerless. Shiny surfaces coupled with frosty elegant motifs make the gold bar diffract different hues of gold, a perfectly memorable gift.

By purchasing this elegant gold bar you are not only getting a valuable precious metal product produced using Swiss engineering expertise, but also an alternative hard currency that has an implicit guarantee of being internationally accepted by bullion dealers, financial institutions and investors alike.

Mint 

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.

PAMP - artistic precious metals products

PAMP was founded in 1977 in Switzerland, and has since then grown to become the world’s most significant manufacturer of bullion bars, ranging in weights from 1 to 100 grams. PAMP’s main facility is located in the picturesque Swiss village of Castel San Pietro where it operates an advanced refinery and fabrication plant that applies the highest Swiss engineering skills and latest cutting-edge technologies in the refinement and production processes of its famed bullion bars. Hailed as a market leader in innovation and in the fabrication of retail precious metal bars, the company was the first precious metals manufacturer to grace the reverse side of its gold bars with different aesthetic motifs. One of them, the beautiful motif of Lady Fortuna, the Roman Goddess of Fortune, became a world hit and is today the hallmark of PAMP’s excellence as a fabricator. It is no wonder then that the acronym of the brand PAMP (Produits Artistiques Métaux Précieux) means artistic precious metal products. PAMP’s high purity and quality bullion bars are accredited by the Swiss National Bank and the LBMA (London Bullion Market Association), making them the preferred choice of leading financial institutions, central banks, investors and collectors worldwide.

PAMP a member of the London Bullion Market Association

The LBMA, or London Bullion Market Association, was established as an independent oversight body by Britain’s Central Bank in 1987. The roots of the LBMA can be traced back several centuries to the 1700s when London started to emerge as the world’s leading trading hub for precious metals. Referred to as the “London Gold Market”, it was self-regulated by the London’s foremost bullion traders and fabricators who oversaw the market by accrediting precious metal refiners to the London Good Delivery List. Only those refiners that met the quality and purity criteria set down by the “LGD” list were allowed to enter the London bullion market. Today, more than 135 companies, which include some of the largest precious metal refiners, storage providers, manufacturers and bullion traders, are members of the London Bullion Market Association. They all form part of the LBMA, the world’s most respected and trusted international authority that monitors the production and refining process of gold and silver bullion. LBMA’s primary role is to manage the Good Delivery List which is today the international standard for the quality and assaying of gold and silver bars. PAMP has been an LBMA member since 1
