Platinum is one of the rarest precious metals in the Earth’s crust. Platinum deposits have been found in deposits alone and as part of nickel and copper ore deposits around the world. Platinum has a visual appearance similar to that of silver with coloration that is often described as silvery-white. In fact, platinum’s name is derived from the Spanish word “platino,” or little silver. Today, 50 Gram Platinum Valcambi Bars are available to you online at Silver.com.

Unlike silver and gold, the amount of platinum produced for investors each year is much lower. Its scarcity within the Earth’s crust and broad use as a commodity result in lower volumes of platinum precious metals issued annually. Most of the world’s platinum comes from deposits in South Africa, with those deposits accounting for up to 80% of the world’s production of platinum.
All of the 50 Gram Platinum Valcambi Bars in this product listing are individually packaged inside of sealed blisterpacks. The card securely houses your platinum bar and includes an assay card around the bar. The obverse of the card includes only the name of the mint. The reverse side of the brown assay card comes with the weight, purity, metal content, and serial number that match your individual bar. There is also the signature of a certified assayer on this side of the card. Each of the bars is available in brand-new condition.
The obverse of the 50 Gram Platinum Valcambi Bars features the images of the Valcambi logo in the central portion of the upper design field, as well as a number of other inscriptions. The logo is accompanied by markings down the right side of the bar that denote the weight, metal content, and purity. The assayer’s mark and unique serial number are also featured on this side. Each bar has a two-letter, six-number serial code that is reflected on the assay card as well.
On the reverse side of 50 Gram Platinum Bars from Valcambi Suisse is the mint name. The full mint name of “Valcambi Suisse” is inscribed along the left side of the bar in a vertical position with the mint logo rotating into the distant background in the lower-right field.
