The history behind our name
Aulion is a name we formed by combining the symbol of gold (Au) with the symbol of wealth, which in
Africa is often seen as a ‘lion’ since it is the King of the animal kingdom. Our logo, which is represented in gold and
includes the lion symbol, aims to combine the concept in one logo element.

Our services include assaying, refining, selling the finished product in the right markets, responsible sourcing of these precious metals from ethical suppliers and the logistics involved in the safe and legal transport of the precious metals from the country of origin to place of sale.
