Why Buy Valcambi
Valcambi is one of Switzerland's most prominent and renowned precious metals refineries, located in the south of the country. It first opened its doors in Ticino in 1961, and has been refining precious metals ever since. Switzerland does not mine any precious metals itself. Instead, many countries around the world export their bullion to Switzerland to be refined. Switzerland is known for the quality of the metals they refine, and their products are in demand worldwide.
From 1967 until 2003, Valcambi SA was wholly owned by Credit Suisse, Switzerland's largest investment bank. During this period private investing into precious metals became hugely popular, and many countries began to release their own range of retail precious metals products. Credit Suisse and UBS were the first two banks to release their own range of bullion products, which were available to their clients. Credit Suisse launched a range of gold, silver, platinum and palladium bars, which became very popular in the 1980s, and have remained popular since then.
All Credit Suisse bars have a Valcambi hallmark at the bottom of them, confirming that the bars are manufacured by Valcambi SA on behalf of the bank.
In 2003 Credit Suisse sold their share of Valcambi, however Valcambi continues to manufacture bars for the bank.
Valcambi also manufacture their own range of bullion bars, which are available in gold, silver, platinum and palladium.
