First 1 Ounce Minted Solid Gold Bar With Partner CNT

The Austrian Mint and Coins N Things Inc. (CNT) are proud to launch in collaboration the first 1 oz Minted solid Gold Bar with CNT as the exclusive distributor in North America. As Austria is famous for music, the universal language, it is no surprise that both the Austrian Mint’s famous Vienna Philharmonic gold bullion coin and the 1 oz Minted Gold Bar are dedicated to music. The front of every Minted Gold Bar bears the Austrian Mint’s distinctive logo, guaranteeing that the bar is of the highest possible standard, while the back bears the first line of Eine kleine Nachtmusik, one of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's most famous works. Meaning "a little night music”, this delivers the message that those who invest in the bar can sleep easy in the knowledge that their assets are in good hands. Each bar is individually sealed in a tamper-proof presentation card featuring a unique serial number and the signature of the Austrian Mint’s Chief Assayer.
