The 10 ounce PAMP Suisse Fortuna Gold Bar features Fortuna, the ancient Roman Goddess of Fortune. Because she embodied luck — both good and bad — she was worshiped as the goddess of gambling. Perceived as the provider of prosperity, she was a favorite with slaves, who made offerings to her in hopes she would reward them with a better station in life. Fortuna’s likeness is in left profile and wearing a blindfold. Because luck is blind, Fortuna doesn’t need to see or judge those who will benefit from the good fortune she bestows, which makes the choice of her beneficiaries completely arbitrary.
The flawless beauty of the Goddess Fortuna engraved on the 10 ounce PAMP Suisse Fortuna Gold Bar increases its investment demand, as the Fortuna Bar is highly collectible. Remember: she is the goddess of luck! The composition of .9999 fine gold is the equivalent of 24 karat gold purity, the highest purity normally seen in the bullion market.
- 10 ounces of 999.9 pure gold
