Credit Suisse is one of the most respected names in the gold market and can look back upon a long history as a financial institution. Its gold bars are produced by the leading refiner Valcambi Suisse out of 99.99% pure gold. All Credit Suisse gold bars have unique serial numbers that can be verified online. Credit Suisse provides further verification of authenticity by encasing most of their precious metal bars in protective plastic with an assay card. The information contained on the assay card is the same as on the front side of the bar.
Compared with other producers of gold bars, Credit Suisse gold bars are often available for lower premiums over the spot price of gold.
The front of Credit Suisse gold bars is stamped with the company name and contains information about the gold weight and purity. The assayer's stamp - CHI Essayeur Fondeur - and a unique serial number can be found underneath this information.
Some Credit Suisse gold bars have the same information on the back as on the front. The Liberty bars are an exception as they bear the likeness of the Statue of Liberty on their reverse side.
