One of the benefits of investing in gold is the ability to select from a wide range of weights and styles. Gold bars are struck in weights as small as 1 Gram to as large as 1 Kilo Gram, or 32.15 Troy oz. Provident Metals now offers 500 Gram Gold Cast Bars in brand-new condition for purchase online.
Your purchase of 500 Gram Gold Cast Bars entitles you to a product in brand-new condition. Each of these bars will ship to you individually with its own protective plastic sleeve. The bars in this listing also come with an assay card from Valcambi Suisse. The assay card reflects the same weight, metal content, purity, and serial number you will find on the bar itself.
On the obverse side of 500 Gram Gold Cast Bars is a depiction of the Valcambi Suisse logo, a rotating square with a pointed throwing star in the center. The name Valcambi Suisse is inscribed above this. Down the right-hand side of the bar, the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar are inscribed as 500 g, gold, 999,9. You will also find the assayers mark on this side and a unique serial number. Cast gold bars from Valcambi Suisse have serial numbers with a two-letter, five-number coding system.
Because these are cast gold bars, you will not find any inscriptions on the reverse field. When cast bars are produced, the reverse field of the bar is not exposed and does not allow the refiners to stamp engravings into this face of the bar.
Cast gold bars represent the oldest form of gold bar in the world. Before a world of machine presses and computer-controlled design systems, gold bars were refined by melting the gold, pouring it into molds, and stamping by hand any designs that are planned to feature on the products. During the cooling process, the reverse field of the bar is facing down in the mold and prevents refiners from accessing this surface to engrave designs.
These 500 Gram Gold Cast Bars all come from Valcambi Suisse. Founded in Balerna, Switzerland, in 1961, the refinery was originally known as Valoria & Cambi and gained its modern name through ownership by Credit Suisse for several decades.
