Valcambi’s 50 g gold CombiBar™ is a fantastic and practical innovation from one of the world’s leading gold refiners. The 50-gram CombiBar™ is slightly larger than a credit card and is pre-scored rather like a chocolate bar. This gold bar can be easily broken down into 50 individual 1 gram bars for convenient trade and barter. Each individual gram bar has its own Valcambi logo on the obverse side, along with the weight, purity, and serial number of the bar. The reverse side of each bar is inscribed with the mint’s name.
It’s brilliant. Valcambi solved a significant pain point of owning larger gold bars, how to make them practical for barter situations. A CombiBar™ gives you the flexibility of owning smaller units of gold while retaining the lower premium over the spot price you’d pay for 50 individual gram bars of gold. This allows investors to spend, trade, or gift precise quantities of gold when needed (without worrying about keeping track of or storing 50 loose gold bars).
The CombiBar™ is minted in 0.999 fine gold. Each CombiBar™ is protected with plastic assay packaging to prevent wear and includes directions on how to segment the CombiBar™ correctly, without loss. As such, these bars are in high demand, with a market composed of collectors and investors of precious metals.
