Valcambi Suisse is one of the most renowned producers of precious metal bullion bars out of gold, silver, platinum and palladium. The company is based in Switzerland where its products are produced and assayed. Especially Valcambi's gold and silver bullion bars have attained a high level of popularity among investors worldwide. Valcambi Suisse produces both minted and cast platinum bullion bars but many investors primarily know Valcambi for its minted CombiBars. The weight and platinum purity of each bar is guaranteed. An included assay card serves as the mint's guarantee and the assayer's stamp - "CHI Essayeur Fondeur" appears on the platinum bars as well.

Minted Valcambi Suisse platinum bars are currently offered in the five sizes of 1 oz, 50 gram, 100 gram, 500 gram and 1 kg (see table above). The bars display Valcambi's logo on the top with the bar weight, 99.95% platinum purity, assayer's stamp and serial number underneath it. The Valcambi Suisse name is stamped onto the reverse of the bars amidst a line pattern. Unlike other producers, Valcambi doesn't mint platinum bars with artistic designs/images. The company's popular CombiBars are also available out of platinum. Valcambi Suisse Platinum CombiBars are single thin divisible platinum bars which means that the bars can be broken up into smaller bar segments. Whereas the CombiBars out of gold and silver are available in many different sizes, Platinum CombiBars are only offered in the single configuration of 50 x 1 gram.

Valcambi's cast platinum bars are limited to one single size, 4914.5 gram "Good Delivery" bars with their typical brick shape. These 99.95% pure cast bars are almost never sold online though. The Valcambi Suisse name appears on the front of these cast bars whereas it appears on the reverse of Valcambi's minted platinum bars. The stylized company logo appears underneath the name followed by the platinum purity, assayer's stamp, bar weight, serial number and year of production. The latter only appears on these large cast platinum bars. Minted bars do not show the year of production on them.

The larger minted Valcambi Suisse platinum bars (that are cheaper to produce) are generally available for lower premiums over the spot price of the metal.

Frontal Design

The front of minted Valcambi Suisse platinum bars shows the company's stylized logo on top (without the name). In the middle lining up with the bar's right edge appears the bar weight and platinum purity information (for example: 1 oz platinum 999,5). Underneath that info is where the assayer's stamp "Essayeur Fondeur" and a unique serial number is engraved.

The front of the 50 x 1 gram Valcambi Suisse Platinum CombiBars is made up of all the bar's individual segments. Each segment shows the Valcambi logo, weight of each segment, platinum purity and assayer's stamp. The bar's serial number is NOT repeated on each individual segment. It only appears once on the reverse of the CombiBar as well as on the packaging.

The "Good Delivery" cast platinum bar that Valcambi Suisse produces shows the company name, logo, platinum purity and assayer's stamp on the top part of the front of the bar. The bar weight, serial number and year of production appears on the lower part.

Reverse Design

The minted platinum bars only have the mint's name valcambi suisse stamped on the reverse side amidst a pattern of lines. All characters are 90 degrees tilted to the left so that the name reads from the bottom to the top. The first word "valcambi" is stamped in larger and bolder letters than "suisse" that follows underneath pushing up towards the top.

The reverse of the minted 50 x 1 gram Platinum CombiBars displays the mint's name, logo, platinum purity, assayer's stamp, full bar weight and serial number. All this info appears spread out over the full bar so some individual segments show fragments of this information whereas other bar segments are blank on their reverse.
