The Aurum® protects a precise amount of gold between layers of durable polyester. In the form of an Aurum®, gold is more convenient, affordable, versatile, and trustworthy than ever before.

Using a proprietary process, very thin and precise quantities of gold are accumulated between layers of polyester film. On a standard 1/20 gram Aurum®, the gold is 267 nm thick, approximately half of one percent the width of a human hair.

The precise quantity of gold is verified through rigorous testing by Valaurum, our manufacturer, and independent laboratories.

The gold in an Aurum® is in a thin sheet, so it is also easier to authenticate than gold hidden inside a coin or bar.

The gold is also easy to recover, using standard assay methods. The Aurum® is printed with high resolution, full-color text and graphics. The result is a new, beautiful way to use gold for artistic, commemorative and branding purposes. We are developing Aurum® made with other metals, including platinum, silver and copper. This unique process has U.S. and international patents pending in Europe, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Iceland, India, Australia, Canada, and elsewhere.
