Gold and silver bars come with a variety of design features and patterns in the 21st century, but sometimes it’s the simplistic look that investors and collectors prefer. This particular 1 Kilo Valcambi Suisse Silver Bar features a unique finish. The bar has the appearance of hand-poured manufacturing, with a matte finish to its surfaces and simple engravings highlighting its design characteristic
On the obverse face of the bar are the engravings of the Valcambi Suisse corporate logo, a tilted square. Above the logo is the full corporate name for the mint, while below it, the engravings of the bar’s weight, metal content, and purity are featured. At the very bottom of the bar is the assayer’s mark and individual serial number that allow you to easily authenticate your purchase with Valcambi Suisse.
The reverse side of these cast bars features no design sets or engravings of any kind. The finish is matte, with a rough surface and rounded edges. While many mints opt for silver bar designs that highlight intense security features and refined finishes, this bar is reminiscent of a simpler time when bars were treasured more for their metal content.
