Priorium – Marie (2020)

  • World’s first coin of the innovative gold alloy Priorium®
  • Consisting of the five rarest precious metals
  • More valuable than pure gold

Minting houses and precious metal companies have invested years of research and development into perfecting processes, minting techniques, and finishing options to enhance the allure of gold coins, making them even more attractive as both investment instruments and collector’s items. The fruit of this labor is embodied in the groundbreaking Priorium series (from the Latin word “prior,” meaning excellent). This cutting-edge creation boasts a gold fineness of 916.7, aligning it with classic investment gold coins such as the Krugerrand and American Eagle. What sets Priorium apart, however, is the inclusion of other precious and rare metals— iridium, palladium, rhodium, and platinum—comprising the remaining 83.3 parts.

This innovative composition not only reinforces the inherent value of the coin but also enhances its aesthetic appeal, making it a unique and highly sought-after addition to any collection. In celebration of its 125th anniversary, the Vreneli, the most iconic classic Swiss coin motif, has undergone a thoughtful reinterpretation, giving rise to the captivating new motif “Marie.”

The Priorium series, as the result of meticulous development, signifies a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation in the realm of numismatics. It serves as a testament to the ongoing pursuit of excellence within the industry, providing investors and collectors alike with an exceptional and timeless representation of precious metals artistry.
