Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune, prosperity, and love, and is indeed the embodiment of the female essence and of beauty in general. She is deity featured on this Lakshmi 5 gram gold bar from the PAMP Suisse "Faith" series. These 24-karat (.9999 fine) gold bars use artistic representations from a variety of the world's major religions to create an attractive new series of bullion items from one of the world's most trusted refineries. Each of these bars contains a total of 5 grams of pure gold content, and are safely encapsulated in their individual assay card.
The goddess Lakshmi dominates the front of the bar. She is shown sitting within a flower, which she holds smaller versions of in her third and fourth arms. Her other two arms are offering up coins and riches that fall forward from a vase in abundance. Rays of brilliant light emanate from her head, indicating that she is divine. She is also wearing a traditional Hindu headdress and fine jewelry. The bar is sealed in its assay card, which certifies the bar's purity, authenticity, as well as its unique serial number.
On the back side, the PAMP Suisse company logo is found at the top of the design. Below, the weight and purity are indicated by "5 g FINE GOLD 999.9." The familiar Essayeur Fondeur mark is stamped below, which is the hallmark of Switzerland's most reputable precious metal refiners. The bar's serial number, which matches the assay card, is placed just above the bottom rim.
The Faith series of gold and silver bars is a fresh opportunity for PAMP Suisse to showcase its capacity for creating beautiful and meaningful artwork, for which the major universalizing world religions is an excellent subject. (There are over 900 million adherents to Hinduism around the world.) With their extra-pure .9999 fine gold composition, these 5-gram bars are a great way to stack bullion while also celebrating world culture.
