International Belgium based company, Umicore specializes in recycling precious metals and refining them into investment worthy bars. Umicore Gold Bars are much in demand for their .9999 gold fineness and various different sizes, making it easy for investors and collectors to add them to a new or established portfolio.
The obverse side of each Umicore Gold Bar features the company name in the middle and a logo in the top right corner. There is a unique serial number above the work Umicore with the weight and engraving FEINGOLD 999.9 below the company name. You won’t find anything on the reverse side of an Umicore Gold Bar because it is completely blank.
Every single Umicore Gold Bar comes complete with an assay card which also displays the finesse and weight, along with the individual serial number and chief assayer’s signature.
Umicore is the world market leader in recycling waste containing precious and non-ferrous metals. The company partly focuses on recovering precious metals, such as gold, and putting them back into the public space for a better life. By carrying out eco-efficient recycling and refining works, Umicore is able to sell gold bars and other precious metal products through certain trading partners, banks and industrial consumers.
Less than 200,000 tons of gold have been produced since gold extraction and mining began thousands of years ago, making recycling essential. However, recycling only accounts for around 30% of the gold produced every year because there is a limit on recycling possibilities as it is mainly present in things like jewelry and bullion bars. Umicore recovers gold from scrap jewelry, unwanted jewelry, electronics and other sources.
While Umicore’s historical roots go back more than 200 years, it began producing investment-grade gold bars in the late 1980s. Based in Brussels, Belgium, the company uses state-of-the-art technology to create fine gold, as well as silver and other precious metals. Its facility is the largest of its kind in the world and Umicore’s refining has been listed as Conflict Free Smelter by the Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC).
Not only is Umicore a respected producer of gold bars but it was also one of the first London Good Delivery gold refiners to be accredited by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA). This tells you that all Umicore gold refining activities comply with the LBMA Responsible Gold Guidance, meaning the company’s gold has been extracted in a way that doesn’t fuel conflict or the abuse of human rights.
Umicore Gold Bars are a popular choice for new and seasoned investors searching for certified 99.99% 24 karat pure gold products. These bars also make wonderful gifts for your family or friends because they have been made by a reputable bullion manufacturer that is approved by the London Bullion Market Association, the competent authority for the world’s bullion market.
If you want to diversify your investment assets or retirement portfolio, you should seriously consider purchasing Umicore Gold Bars. As all Umicore Gold Bars exceed the minimum pureness level for eligibility in a gold or precious metals Individual Retirement Account (IRA), they can significantly reduce your portfolio’s volatility and help you survive a potential crisis in the future.
