Valcambi Suisse is a renowned private mint that is based in Switzerland. It stands out among the producers of silver bullion bars for the innovativeness of its products that is exemplified by the popular CombiBars. Precious metal investors that choose to buy silver bars with the Valcambi logo will find both cast and minted silver bars available in a variety of sizes. All Valcambi silver bullion bars are 99.9% pure and the fineness and weight of each bar is guaranteed by the mint. The front side of the bars displays the company's stylized logo followed by the bar weight, silver purity, assayer's stamp and serial number and the reverse just shows the Valcambi Suisse name amidst a line pattern.

Minted bars are available in five different sizes ranging from 1 oz up to 1 kg. In addition to the minted silver bars, Valcambi Suisse also offers cast silver bars in the sizes of 1 kg, 5 kg and 1,000 oz. The Good Delivery 1,000 oz silver bars are rarely sold online though. The most popular Valcambi silver bars are probably the CombiBars that can be divided up into smaller bar segments. Silver CombiBars are offered in the two configurations of 100 x 1 gram and 10 x 10 gram. American consumers that are investing in silver for their retirements can of course include all kinds of Valcambi Silver in their Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA's).

Why buy Valcambi Suisse Silver Bars?

Valcambi Suisse is one of the most renowned refiners of precious metals. The company produces bullion bars out of gold, silver, platinum and palladium at its home base in Switzerland. 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 silver bullion bars but many investors primarily know Valcambi for its minted CombiBars. The weight and purity of each Valcambi Suisse silver bar is guaranteed. An included assay card serves as the mint's guarantee and the assayer's stamp - "CHI Essayeur Fondeur" appears on the silver bars as well.

Minted Valcambi Suisse silver bars are currently offered in five different sizes ranging from 1 oz bars up to 1 kg bars (see table above). The bars display Valcambi's logo on the top with the bar weight, 99.9% silver 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 silver bars with artistic designs/images. The company's most popular minted silver bars are probably its Silver CombiBars. Valcambi Suisse Silver CombiBars are single thin divisible silver bars which means that the bars can be broken up into smaller bar segments. Valcambi Silver CombiBars are offered in the sizes of 100 x 1 gram and 10 x 10 gram.

Valcambi's cast silver bars on the other hand are much more rarely found in the inventory of online dealers. The cast bars are also 99.9% pure and offered in the sizes of 1 kg, 5 kg and 1,000 oz. The Good Delivery 1,000 oz silver bars are generally not offered by online precious metal dealers though. The Valcambi Suisse name appears on the front of each cast Valcambi silver bar (whereas it appears on the reverse of Valcambi's minted silver bars) along with all the other information also found on the minted bars. The 5 kg and 1,000 oz cast silver bars show the production year on the front side as well. The standardized Good Delivery 1,000 oz Valcambi bars don't have their weight listed on the bar.

The larger Valcambi silver 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 silver bullion 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 silver purity information (for example: 1 oz fine silver 999,0). Underneath that info is where the assayer's stamp "Essayeur Fondeur" and a unique serial number is engraved.

The front of Valcambi's Silver CombiBars is made up of all the bar's individual segments. Each segment shows the Valcambi Suisse name, weight of each segment, silver purity and assayer's stamp.

The cast silver bars that Valcambi Suisse produces show the company name, logo, bar weight (except 1,000 oz bar), silver purity, assayer's stamp and serial number on the front of the bar. The 5 kg bars and the 1,000 oz Good Delivery bars also have the year of production stamped on the front.

Reverse Design

The minted silver bars have the mint's name valcambi suisse stamped on the reverse side amidst a line pattern. 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 Silver CombiBars displays the mint's logo and silver purity on each individual detachable segment.
