Verification

THE PRECISE QUANTITY OF GOLD IS VERIFIED THROUGH RIGOROUS TESTING BY VALAURUM AND INDEPENDENT LABORATORIES.

Verification

Every Aurum® issue is painstakingly verified using proprietary and industry-standard techniques.

Aurum are manufactured with a proprietary, vacuum deposition process that allows small and precise quantities of gold to be accumulated. During this process, the density of the deposition is constantly monitored using optical sensors that measure how much light can pass through the metal.

Then, representative samples are checked by fire assay. In the assay, the Aurum’s polymer film is burned away, leaving purified gold behind. The resulting pellet is weighed using sensitive scales, confirming the precise quantity of gold in every sampled Aurum. These assay results are checked regularly against independent scientific laboratories. Our preferred assayers are Ledoux & Company, registered weighmasters for any materials that go into the Comex Exchange, and Alex Stewart International.

Finally, issues of Aurum are checked by X-ray fluorescence. With the XRF machine, high energy x-rays are passed through the entire Aurum, allowing us to check density and purity in an ISO-certified process.

Together, these processes guarantee the precise quantity of gold in every Aurum.
