Cast gold bars are an excellent option for investors of any level or wealth. There are two primary factors behind the affordability of cast gold bars such as the 500 Gram Valcambi Cast Gold Bar: complexity and design.
The design of 500 Gram Valcambi Cast Gold Bars is simple, with only text engravings featured on the obverse face. The lack of a refined design helps keep the price lower than the average premium over the spot price of gold.
Additionally, cast gold bars are produced through a simpler technique that requires fewer steps in the production process. Cast bars are produced by melting gold in a vat, and then pouring it by hand or mechanical operation into a cast to cool and form its shape.
On the obverse of the 500 Gram Valcambi Cast Gold Bar are the only engravings you’ll note on these products. These engravings include the Valcambi logo, refinery name, weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, as well as its individual serial number and year of issue.
As a London and Comex Good Delivery refinery, cast bars for investment must include the year of issue and individual serial number engraved on the surface. Serial numbers from Valcambi Suisse on its 500 Gram Valcambi Cast Gold Bars consist of two letters and five numbers.
Valcambi Suisse originated as Valori & Cambi in 1961 in Balerna, Switzerland. After struggling during its early years, the refinery was purchased by Credit Suisse. The acquisition resulted in the combination of Valori & Cambi to Valcambi, and the addition to Suisse to the name. Though Credit Suisse no longer has an ownership stake, Valcambi Suisse retains its globally recognized brand name.
