The Valcambi Suisse Mint has a remarkable history of refining and minting precious metals. It was founded in 1961 as the company ‘Valori & Cambi’ in the southeastern city of Switzerland, Balerna, which is very close to the Italian border. Later, in 1968, it became a part of the Credit Suisse company, and then, in 2001, it was bought by the European Gold Refineries. During the next years, Valcambi adopted several strategic changes, from changing its business model and the new partnership with Newmont and several banks up to embracing the new logo, reorganization, and product innovations.
Since 2015, Valcambi is owned by Singapore’s Global Gold Refineries Ltd. For over 50 years, Valcambi has supplied central banks, governments, and international organizations with gold bars and blank coins. It produces one of the purest and uniquely designed bars currently available for purchase on the gold bar market. Aside from manufacturing precious metal bullion from gold, silver, platinum, and palladium, Valcambi also produces gold-grain watch cases and collectible ingots. This reputable mint is recognized by international institutions in the precious metal industry, like Zurich’s gold officials and LBMA.
