Pamp Mecca Half Ounce Silver

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to find out a bit more about this so I'm hoping someone might know or be able to point me in the right direction. 

I can find an example of a 1oz bar but no info on that either. 

It must be early 80s as I know who bought it but is it strange to have a sterling frame and keychain? Would it be used as a 'carry-item' i.e. something to trade if you ran out of cash? I know where Mecca is but would this bar have been released in a specific country?

Thanks for looking and if I've posted this in the wrong section let me know!

These bars were minted in 1984/85, had a couple varieties, with inscription, without and some minor differences, propably just caused by minting. They wasn't released for a specific country. Not sure, if this is part of PAMP's religious series. 2015, or 2016, they released a new Mecca bar. If i remember right, only in 1 OZ. They wasn't released with keychain and frame, must be custom made.

@dikefalos Perfect, thanks for that! 84 is bang on date wise as to when it was likely purchased and from some other bits I've found today it will have been in Saudi Arabia! 

Spot was about $4 then so it would have bought some food and water. Much the same as a half ounce these days. Proof yet again that owning PM is important 😁
