The 5 ounce PAMP Suisse Fortuna Gold Bar honors Fortuna, the ancient Roman Goddess of Fortune. Because she embodied luck — both good and bad – and chance, 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 elevation to a higher status. 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.
