ARGOR-HERAEUS GOLD BARS
With its headquarters located in Mendrisio, Switzerland, Argor-Heraeus is one of the largest precious metals processors in the world. It’s specialized in refining silver, gold, platinum, and palladium, providing precious metals products to banks and several other industries, as well as providing services for trading on the industry market.
Argor was founded in 1951 in Chiasso, Switzerland. In 1973, it was acquired by UBS, and, in 1986, the company joined forces with Heraeus Group forming the new Argor-Heraeus S.A. In 1988 it moved its headquarters in Mendrisio and in 1999 the Heraeus acquires 100% of the company’s shares. In the same year, Commerzbank International entered this joint venture, and three years later, Austrian Mint also became one of the company’s shareholders.
Argor-Heraeus entered the gold bullion market with two gold bullion bar products: Heraues Gold Cast Bars and Heraues Gold Minted Bars. Argor-Heraeus is famous for their remarkable mixture of art, technology and attention to detail, making them an attractive investment option for passionate collectors.
