Platinum has a silverfish-white appearance similar to that of silver. In fact, when the precious metal was first discovered by Spanish explorers in South America, it was given a name reflective of its similar appearance to silver. The Spanish referred to the metal they found indigenous tribes making artistic sculptures and jewelry with as “platino.” In English, this translates as “little silver.”
In the modern era, platinum is one of the most versatile metals in use by human civilizations. However, its rarity in the Earth’s crust makes it an incredibly valuable metal in terms of its applications in various industries and its use as a form of investment-grade bullion.
The obverse of these 5 Gram Platinum Valcambi Bars includes the stunning Valcambi logo and identifying markers. The Valcambi logo occupies much of the top-third of the bar’s design field, with the weight, metal content, and purity noted below it. At the bottom of the bar’s design field, you will find the assayer’s mark and the serial number. Valcambi assigns serial numbers to these bars using a two-number, six-letter coding system.
On the reverse face of Platinum Valcambi Bars is the full name of the mint as “Valcambi Suisse.” Though the bars are designed to be viewed vertically the tall way, the inscription of the mint name is located along the left as you view the bar like this. Holding the bar horizontally the long way, this name appears along the top. The field on the reverse also includes the Valcambi logo with square frames radiating in a repeated pattern throughout the rest of the field.
These 5 Gram Platinum Valcambi Bars are available to you as brand-new products. Valcambi Suisse packages each bar inside of a sealed blisterpack that includes an assay card. The assay authenticates the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, as well as the serial number.
