Our mission

VeraCash® was created by an entrepreneur who sees gold as a precautionary savings tool, as a modern, viable alternative to classic currencies and as an instrument of freedom and protection against a loss of buying power. Jean-François Faure, the founder of VeraCash®, wants to make precious metals as accessible as possible and to develop a durable gold-backed currency based on strong values. The VeraCash® payment card was the first step in this gold payment revolution. Shortly after the company was created in 2015, a function was launched to enable the sending of grammes of gold, so providing a peer-to-peer means of exchange separate from the banking world, with the goal of facilitating payments between private individuals. In 2017, VeraCash® included professionals in its ecosystem with the aim of offering a network of services and merchants via short, ethical channels.

The name ‘VeraCash’ is a combination of the Latin ‘vera’—which means ‘true’—and ‘cash’. ‘Vera’ is a symbol shared by several of our brands, including ‘VeraValor’ (gold coins minted by our group). ‘Vera’ is a clear affirmation of our ethical commitment to a sustainable economy, short consumer channels and environmental protection. In short, VeraCash® is ‘true money’.
