When it comes to cast bars and minted ingots, cast bars are often the preferred choice of investors. There are a number of reasons for this, but the two biggest are affordability and range of options.
250 Gram Valcambi Cast Gold Bars and other similar products are refined using traditional methods. Gold is melted and poured by hand or computerized equipment into a pre-set cast to produce bars of certain shapes and weights. The bars are then left to cool by air or dumped into water to accelerate the cooling of the bar.
Because of the lack of intricate designs, refined finishes, and the overall less-complex production method of cast bars, Valcambi Suisse and other refiners are able to offer 250 Gram Valcambi Cast Gold Bars at lower premiums over the spot price of gold. This makes them a more attractive product to most investors.
On the obverse of the 250 Gram Valcambi Cast Gold Bar you’ll find the markings of the rotating square, Valcambi’s logo, the full refinery name, and the bar’s weight, purity, and metal content. There is also an individual serial number on the bar, and all engravings are arranged horizontally from the left to the right of the bar.
Each 250 Gram Valcambi Cast Gold Bar product must feature its year of issue, purity, weight, and individual serial number engraved on the bar in order to meet the London and Comex Good Delivery standards.
Valcambi Suisse is located in Balerna, Switzerland, where it was founded in 1961. The company was originally known as Valori & Cambi, became Valcambi Suisse following its acquisition by Credit Suisse in 1968, and is now owned by a new congolomerate.
