Valcambi Mint

Valcambi Mint

Headquartered in Balerna, Switzerland, Valcambi is one of the world’s best-known Precious Metal mints. They manage their refining operations in one of the world’s largest facilities, covering more than 8.1 acres, with the ability to process roughly 2,000 metric tons annually.

Passionate about contemporary technology, stringent security and quality control, Valcambi embraces a range of refining techniques. They work with a variety of Precious Metals, including Gold, Silver and metals from the Platinum group.

The range of services Valcambi offers spans refining, assaying and manufacturing. They even develop semi-finished products for the watch industry and manufacture medals, blanks and complex alloys.

In 1961, Valcambi began as a metal refinery called Valori & Cambi. Over time, the names were combined as the refinery passed through the hands of various stewards. At one crucial point, Credit Suisse bought Valcambi and the mint became London and Comex Good Delivery. The early 2000s saw the Newmont Mining Corporation, one of the world’s largest Gold producers, become a strategic partner.

Timeless Designs

Valcambi is one of the most well-respected mints in the world. They not only produce exceptional Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium bars under their own brand, but they also mint beautiful Gold coins and even jewelry items. One of their most revolutionary product lines is the CombiBar™, which provides an option for investors to purchase larger amounts of Precious Metal that is able to be broken apart with the idea that liquidating fractional pieces is often easier and more manageable.

Unique Production

Valcambi produces CombiBars™, which are detachable bullion bars designed to meet the current investment trend toward purchasing many small bars instead of large ones. This drive toward flexibility gave Valcambi the idea to produce 1 gram and 10 gram bars, in sheets up to 100 grams total weight, with predetermined breaking points so it is easy to break apart without losing any of the Precious Metal.

Another exceptional Valcambi-produced item is a 2015 1 oz Gold Cook Islands Armillary coin. At first glance, this item looks like any of flat Gold coin, but upon removal from the assay package, the coin can be twisted into a beautiful shape resembling an armillary sphere. This coin also incorporates CombiBar™ technology, meaning each ring can be separated to create an even more unique experience.
