    I like collecting vintage gold bars even more than the silver variety, so I am starting a tread on this subject.
    Lets have a peek at any unusual ones you own.
    One of my favourites is the 1oz Harrington

    A stacker snapped it up some time ago.

    Information is pretty scant on Oriana bars.
    Did they actually mint a 50gram bar?

    Yes, they made the range in the link rbaggio posted. Started in late 2005 and ceased production in early 2007, about the same time as they started packaging Perth Mint branded bars in the Certicard.

    From what I gather, the Oriana was made mainly for export to the European market. I suspect it was a commissioned product but can't get any info out of the Perth Mint on it so I can't say for sure.

    Premiums on those bars has shot through the roof.
    One ebay site has about a $40 premium on a 1gram bar. Ouch!

    Never see them in Melbourne - I'd say they're gaining quasi-numismatic status.
