Cast gold bars are more affordable to all investors than their minted ingot counterparts due to the lower premium over the gold price per ounce. While all bars start as cast bars, with minted ingots stamped out of larger cast bars during a complex production method, cast bars are produced through traditional methods.
Gold is heated to its melting point first and then poured into a cast that is shaped to hold a precise amount of gold to meet a weight and minimum content of gold. The bars are then either left to cool in those casts, or dumped into water to cool.
These 1 Kilo Gold Valcambi Cast Bars are among the most popular weights. While 1 oz and 10 oz bars are popular, on a per-ounce basis, 1 Kilo Gold Valcambi Cast Bars are more affordable for the size and weight. On top of that, cast bars in general are more affordable because the production method is less complex, allowing for a lower premium over the spot price of gold.
On the obverse of the 1 Kilo Gold Valcambi Cast Bar is the engraving of the refinery name and the Valcambi Suisse logo. Situated at the top of the bar, the remaining engravings run in descending order vertically and include the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar. You’ll also notice the assayer’s mark and an individual serial number. Each 1 Kilo Gold Valcambi Cast bar as a two-letter, five-number serial code.
Valcambi Suisse is a privately-owned refinery located in Balerna, Switzerland. Opened in 1961, the company was purchased in 1968 by Credit Suisse. Though the latter has sold its stake in Valcambi Suisse, the name “Suisse” remains in the brand as a nod to the company that brought Valcambi Suisse up to standards in the 1960s.
