Tavex is pleased to offer the 2020 PAMP Lunar 1 oz .999 fine silver bar. Manufactured by PAMP, a world-renowned Swiss precious metals fabricator accredited by the Swiss Central Bank and the LBMA, the one-ounce minted Lunar silver bar features a reverse-side rendering of a charming mouse, facing west – the cardinal direction associated with this animal. The mouse is the symbol of one of the twelve years that constitute the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.
The quality of this silver bar is peerless. Shiny surfaces coupled with frosty elegant motifs make the silver bar diffract different hues of silver, a perfectly memorable gift. By taking possession of this elegant silver bar you are not only gaining a valuable precious metal fabricated by Swiss engineering expertise, but also an alternative hard currency that has an implicit guarantee of being internationally accepted by bullion dealers, financial institutions and investors alike. As with every edition of the series, the 1 ounce Yeare of the Mouse silver bar is sealed within brilliant red CertiPAMP packaging, ensuring that it is both ready-made for gift-giving and an ideal purchase for bullion enthusiasts.

The Chinese lunar calendar is today used by many for Taoist cosmology. It is believed that, depending on the year of the zodiac when a person is born, a special relationship exists between the person’s personality and the animal that constitutes part of the Chinese zodiac. The animals in the zodiac are supposed to be of a symbolic nature, where each animal is a representation of a specific group of characteristics and traits that can be found in every human being. There are twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac, each of them being celebrated once every twelve years. The year of the Mouse was celebrated in 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008 and 2020.
Those born in the year of the mouse are considered to be good at acquiring and safeguarding riches. This ability stems from their naturally curious mind that always seeks out knowledge and, thanks to their quick-wittedness, they are able to take advantage of opportunities. People born under the year of the mouse tend to have strong intuition, are perfectionists and have excellent taste. They are most often ambitious and, in striving to attain their goals, they will use all their wits to succeed, including being charming, persuasive and charismatic. This can attract others and specifically the opposite sex, and although people born in the year of the mouse tend to enjoy a large social circle they most often have more acquaintances than true friends. But once you become their real friend, they will treat you as their family. People born under the year of the mouse are loyal and devoted to their loved ones, making them especially good parents.
It can therefore be seen that the PAMP Lunar Year of the Mouse silver bar is an ideal gift for whoever you love or respect, since giving a silver Lunar bar means that you are showing affection by immortalising the person’s year of birth and particular virtues in pure and precious silver artwork.
PAMP was founded in 1977 in Switzerland, and has since then grown to become the world’s most significant manufacturer of bullion bars, ranging in weights from 1 to 100 grams. PAMP’s main facility is located in the picturesque Swiss village of Castel San Pietro where it operates an advanced refinery and fabrication plant that applies the highest Swiss engineering skills and latest cutting-edge technologies in the refinement and production processes of its famed bullion bars. Hailed as a market leader in innovation and in the fabrication of retail precious metal bars, the company was the first precious metals manufacturer to grace the reverse side of its gold bars with different aesthetic motifs. One of them, the beautiful motif of Lady Fortuna, the Roman Goddess of Fortune, became a world hit and is today the hallmark of PAMP’s excellence as a fabricator. It is no wonder then that the acronym of the brand PAMP (Produits Artistiques Métaux Précieux) means artistic precious metal products. PAMP’s high purity and quality bullion bars are accredited by the Swiss National Bank and the LBMA (London Bullion Market Association), making them the preferred choice of leading financial institutions, central banks, investors and collectors worldwide.
PAMP a member of the London Bullion Market Association
The LBMA, or London Bullion Market Association, was established as an independent oversight body by Britain’s Central Bank in 1987. The roots of the LBMA can be traced back several centuries to the 1700s when London started to emerge as the world’s leading trading hub for precious metals. Referred to as the “London Gold Market”, it was self-regulated by the London’s foremost bullion traders and fabricators who oversaw the market by accrediting precious metal refiners to the London Good Delivery List. Only those refiners that met the quality and purity criteria set down by the “LGD” list were allowed to enter the London bullion market. Today, more than 135 companies, which include some of the largest precious metal refiners, storage providers, manufacturers and bullion traders, are members of the London Bullion Market Association. They all form part of the LBMA, the world’s most respected and trusted international authority that monitors the production and refining process of gold and silver bullion. LBMA’s primary role is to manage the Good Delivery List which is today the international standard for the quality and assaying of gold and silver bars. PAMP has been an LBMA member since 1987.
The obverse features the mouse as if viewed from behind, and the single inscription on the ancient coin bears the mark of the ancient Chinese Imperial Mint. At the top of the 1-ounce silver bar is PAMP’s official stamp and the text “SUISSE”. The centre of the bar reads “1 oz”, “SILVER”, and “999”, signifying 99.9% pure silver. At the bottom of the bar is the unique serial number and the assayer’s stamp, which guarantees the purity of the silver bar.
The reverse displays a rendering of a charming mouse, facing west – the cardinal direction associated with this animal. The element of metal is particular to the rat in 2020, represented by an ancient Chinese coin bearing characters that translate to: “The year of the rat is the harvest year.
The one-ounce Year of the Mouse silver bullion ingot comes in sealed transparent tamper-proof protective CertiPAMP packaging. The colour of the packaging is brilliant red. For larger orders, multiples of 25 are available in original refinery hard plastic boxes.
The corresponding weight, silver fineness, unique serial number and assayer’s signature that is visible on the reverse of the 1-ounce silver bar is likewise printed on the back of the packaging. Thus, the package also functions as a signed certificate of authenticity.
