The vast majority of silver bars are produced using either a mint or cast production process. A cast bar is produced by pouring molten metals into a cast, which is then dumped into water to cool quickly or left exposed to the open air to cool over time. Cast bars are more affordable for investors, because they have lower production costs.
Modern refining techniques allow mints and refineries to produce brand-new bars that feature an antique appearance. The antique finish on these 1 Kilo Silver Valcambi Cast Bar adds depth and character to the overall design by providing warm, subtle accents to the finish.
On the obverse face of these 1 Kilo Silver Valcambi Cast Bars are the only engravings featured on the product. At the top of the bar, the corporate name “Valcambi Suisse” is followed by the corporate logo of a rotating square. Below those engravings, the bar’s weight, metal content, and purity are listed. An assayer’s mark and individual serial number are found at the bottom.
The reverse face has no engravings. Each of these cast bars ships to you complete with an assay card to verify the authenticity of the product. The assay card features the signature of the individual assayer who verified the bar’s weight and purity, and the serial number of the bar for comparison purposes.
Valcambi Suisse was founded in Balerna, Switzerland in 1961 as Valori & Cambi. A merger in 1968 with Credit Suisse resulted in the refinery being renamed Valcambi Suisse.
