Gold bar 20 g (Münze Österreich)
A 20g gold bar is a common choice when diversifying a portfolio by investing in gold. Similar to the 10g bar, clients buy them along with larger bars (50, 100 or 250 grams). This way they are more flexible when selling because they can cash in only a part of their portfolio. In this manner, cash out is easy and offers flexibility when selling part of a collection. Each gold bar has its own serial number. Each gold bar has its own serial number. Münze Österreich delivers small and medium sized bars in their original, airtight, plastic packaging, a blister, that also works as a certificate. Additionally, Auro Domus issues their own certificate that guarantees authenticity and quality of the bars.
Austrian mint Münze Österreich is owned by the Central Austrian bank. It is one of the oldest mints in the world. Historically, it was first mentioned in 1371, but the actual history is about two centuries longer. There is an interesting story about its beginnings. On his way back from the Crusades, Richard the Lionheart was apprehended in Austria (due to a prior offence towards Duke Leopold V). Richard paid 15 tons of silver in ransom. Leopold decided to use that silver to make coins, thus starting the first mint business in Vienna. Along with coins, Münze Österreich produces Austrian euro coins, as well as commemorative medals. Auro Domus is their official partner in Croatia.
