    So I emailed Suisse Gold Customer Service, who informed me that it was a bar produced by Valacambi for Credit Suisse in 1984 "Year of the Rat"

    Another favorite is this 5oz Engelhard that was shrink wrapped on a piece of cardboard and slides in a cool maroon holder. The bar is pristine.
    Has anyone seen another 5oz like this? 20200802_225019.jpg

    I've only ever seen 2.5oz size in gold bars coming from Australia. I wonder if there is a story behind that.

    Is this a rare/collectible/vintage gold bar of any special value more than the pure gold value?
    (I am guessing that these were the old gold bars around the Oriana times, pre-Certicard)

    I know that there will definitely be some people interested in this vintage ingot. Perth mint 1oz gold cast ingot from the 1988 World Expo. I've seen a few of the 1/2 oz floating around but first time seeing the 1oz. I don't have the funds to purchase it, so might as well share the love and hopefully someone on this forum can pick it up. It's a beauty!
