Investors look to gold and silver bars as an excellent way to protect their hard-earned private wealth. When it comes to silver bars, there are a few weights that are particularly popular. After the 1 oz and 10 oz bar, the 1 Kilo silver bar is among the favorites of investors. Right now, the 1 Kilo Valcambi Cast Silver Bar is available from JM Bullion.
- Contains 1 Kilo (32.15 troy oz) of .999 pure silver.
- Each bar produced using casting process.
- Available in brand-new condition.
- Complete with an assay card.
- Ships in sealed plastic.
Modern mints produced gold and silver bars in one of two processes: minted ingots or cast. Each of these bars are produced using the latter process. In this production process, molten silver is poured into a die cast to form the physical features of the bar, and it is then either dropped into water to cool or exposed to open air to cool over a longer period.
Each of the 1 Kilo Valcambi Cast Silver Bars in this product listing ships complete with an assay card. On the card you’ll find the name and logo of the refinery, the type of bar, its weight, purity, and metal content, and the signature of a certified assayer. Additionally, there is a serial number on the assay card that matches the one stamped onto the bar.
On the obverse face of this cast silver bar is the corporate name and logo, which includes “Valcambi Suisse” and the well-known rotating square design. Below that are engravings of the bar’s weight, metal content, and purity. These bars have no engravings on the reverse face.
These 1 Kilo Valcambi Cast Silver Bars are a popular choice among investors because they can be obtained at lower premiums compared to minted ingots. This is a result of the lower fabrication cost of cast silver bars, offering the same purity and value as minted ingots, at a more affordable price.
Valcambi Suisse was formed in Balerna, Switzerland in 1961 as Valori & Cambi. Consolidation with Credit Suisse gave the company its modern name of Valcambi Suisse, and today the refinery is owned by a conglomerate from India and Singapore.
