The gryphon, symbol of Bullion Management Group Inc. (BMG) and its related companies, is a mythical creature with the head, talons and wings of an eagle, and the body of a lion.
Legends about this fantastic beast date back to 3300 BC, when a gryphon was chosen as companion to the Egyptian Pharaoh.
Legend has it that gryphons, driven by instinct to seek out treasure, roamed the Caucasus Mountains in search of gold and precious stones. They would dig up these riches with their powerful talons and build their nests of gold. They laid agates rather than eggs, making the nests a target for hunters.
The gryphons became ever vigilant, protecting their nests and keeping thieves away, thus developing a reputation for being the guardians of gold. Known for centuries as a symbol of strength and vigilance, today the gryphon embodies the spirit of BMG and has been the company logo since 2004. In 2008 with the expansion of the brand, the initials BMG were added to the logo as all bullion products feature the intials “BMG” as part of their name.
The BMG logo presents an instantly recognizable identity to current and prospective investors around the globe; one that conveys the strength, stability, vigilance and integrity that characterizes the BMG bullion products and services.
