Gold bar 250 g (Münze Österreich)
The 250g Münze Österreich gold bar is one of the best-selling items in the Auro Domus offer.
Like the 500g and 1000g bars, it is considered a large bar, which allows for a lower average price per gram. Compared to the 1000g bar it is sold back into the market much easier, and the owner can cash in more quickly.
Each gold bar has its own serial number. 250 gram bars are delivered to customers without packaging and so Auro Domus has produced exclusive packaging for large bars that facilitates their storage. As Münze Österreich does not issue a certificate for large bars (250 g, 500 g, 1000 g), 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.
