Buy 10g Gold Cowries .9999 - 30 g (3 x 10 g) Bag

High quality South African gold with an amazing historical background!

Just a simple snail shell? The Money Cowry is much more than that. Dating back to 1200 BC, money cowries were widely used as currency around the world, on almost every continent. Now, the attractive advantages of this ancient currency, a humble snail shell, have been replicated in pure .9999 gold.

The Money Cowry, or Cypraea Moneta, was reportedly used as a liquid asset as recently as the middle of the 20th century.  Now in available in .9999 fine gold, the 10 gram gold cowry improves upon its fragile ancestor’s advantages. Pure gold in small denominations is especially desirable due to its convenience, durability, incredible value and very small size.

This product offered by Kitco is three (3) of the 10 g gold money cowries, in an attractive African pouch made of soft sheepskin. Each of the three gold cowries weighs 0.3215 oz (10 g). Each bag of three gold cowries contains 0.9645 oz (30 grams) of pure .9999 fine gold.

Shaped like a real money cowry shell, each pure gold 10 gram cowrie is stamped with both weight (10 g) and purity (.9999). Whether for an investment in gold, or just for a convenient and portable way to hold small amounts of pure gold, these gold money cowries are for you. Add Gold Cowries to your cart today!

Money cowries are also available at Kitco in pure .999 silver.  Visit our silver product pages to see the 10 g Silver Money Cowries .999 - Kilo Bag and to learn more about this exciting silver bullion product.

About Metal Concentrators

Metal Concentrators is a pioneer in the field of refining, manufacturing and supplying precious metals in South Africa. The company has earned a reputation for being an industry trendsetter giving technical support to South African Jewellery manufacturers. Established in 1989, Metal Concentrators has refineries in Johannesburg and Cape Town and a satellite branch in Durban. It also has a team of representatives who serve the South African precious metals industry.

Metal Concentrators was the first company to receive permission from the South African Diamond and Jewellery Regulator and the South African Reserve Bank to produce and sell minted gold, silver and platinum bars. The Company’s operation is fully compliant with the provisions of the Mining Charter and was the first South African company to receive dual certification (Chain of Custody and Code of Practice Certificates attached) from the Responsible Jewellery Council in London. This certification acknowledges high levels of integrity in gold trading. Metal Concentrators was also the first company in South Africa to formulate and produce nickel-free alloys in compliance with the EU Nickel Release Standard.

Metal Concentrators has made a substantial contribution to the growth of the South African jewellery industry by supporting the goals of the Jewellery Manufacturers Association. The Platinum Design Competition, known as ‘’PlatAfrica’, was initiated by the Company together with Anglo Platinum to further that goal.

Today Metal Concentrators is focusing on another goal: The Evolution of African Wealth. To create nation building precious metal products accessible to all South Africans. To expand South Africa’s precious metal footprint in the rest of the world through the world class manufacturing of bullion and heritage products which represent South Africa with dignity and respect. As the only South African refinery to buy back its own products in South Africa, the risk to the end consumer is radically diminished. The new investor who wants to start investing in precious metals can trade fearlessly with a company who understands the need to expand and store wealth by buying back at any time their own precious metal products at market related rates.
