Investors often turn to gold bars as a safe-haven investment option when markets are unstable and fiat currencies struggle. Compared to gold bullion coins, gold bars are often viewed as a more available option for the average investor.
Gold bullion coin programs have a great deal of fanfare, and with limited mintage figures from sovereign mints, these coins can often sell out before the vast majority of investors can procure products. On top of that, gold bullion coins have slightly higher premiums over the spot price of gold because of their complex production methods.
50 Gram Gold Valcambi Bars and other products from minted ingot ranges have no specific mintage figures, making them more available to a wider range of investors. On top of that, though minted ingots take more time to product than cast bars, they don’t take as much time as bullion coins. This keeps the premiums lower.
On the obverse of each 50 Gram Gold Valcambi Bar is the engraving of the refinery logo at the top, followed by the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar. An individual serial number and assayer’s mark is included as well.
The reverse of the Valcambi Suisse gold bar includes only the refinery’s name. Each bar ships with an orange assay card courtesy of the refinery that includes the weight, purity, metal content, and serial number for verification purposes. Valcambi minted ingots feature two-letter, six-number serial codes.
Valcambi Suisse began life as a refinery in 1961 in Balerna, Switzerland under the name Valori & Cambi. The combined name came from the 1968 acquisition of the company by Credit Suisse, which has since sold its controlling interest in the operation.
