Augmont Gold For All, an India-based gold platform, which provides a fully integrated gold ecosystem including Digi Gold, gold SIP, finance against gold, and purchase of gold and silver jewellery on spot and even on EMI basis. The Bullion Federation has recognised Augmont Gold For All as the best gold dealer and seller at numerous international conferences.
The federation recently announced that they are launching a new 24-karat limited-edition coin minted by the prestigious IGM – a part of SPMCIL – to commemorate 75 years of India's independence.
The SPMCIL comprises divisions with a long and illustrious history of managing the nation's security printing and minting. It all started with the minting of coins at the Calcutta Mint in the 18th century.
“This new coin launch demonstrates Augmont Gold For All's vision to preserve Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel's (Iron Man) legacy,” the company stated in a press release shared with PrintWeek.
The limited-edition coin is dedicated to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the Iron Man of India in honour of his commitment and drive, and the iron mind to take up challenges. The obverse side of the coin is engraved with the "Statue of Unity" and the reverse side contains the logo of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
The 24K gold coin comes with 999 purity and weighs 7.5 grams in tamper-proof blister packaging. The coin is accompanied by a scroll on the Preamble of the Constitution of India and a book depicting 75 glorious years of India.
“The book is a thoughtfully curated compendium that celebrates 75 defining moments and iconic metaphors of India post its independence. The design of the book is a brown beige textured style with a splash of Indian colour to symbolise colourful India. The natural theme represents national icons like the tiger, lotus, and banyan tree. All these elements come in a premium box with magnetic closure titled Moments and Metaphors. The look and feel of this collectible masterpiece are inspired by Desh ki Mitti, monuments, old scrolls and texts, and omnipresent khadi,” the release stated.
Ketan Kothari, director, Augmont Gold, said, "Augmont Gold For All has the vision to glitter a billion lives through the power of gold. We want to make gold a life enabler for all our stakeholders. We are proud to launch a coin celebrating India's 75 years of glory post-independence, minted with precision by the IGM. The coin has an elegant, minimal, premium, yet truly Indian design and hence a perfect souvenir for our loved ones. Augmont Gold For All would continue to stand for trust, value for money and customer service."
