History of Credit Suisse Gold Bars
Credit Suisse gold bars are manufactured by the Swiss refinery Valcambi SA on behalf of the bank. Credit Suisse, which is Switzerland's largest private bank, began to issue retail sized bullion bars in the 1980s in response to an increasing trend in investing in physical precious metals. This was most notable with the gold Krugerrand coin, issued by the Rand Refinery. By 1979, more than 3,000,000 Krugerrands were sold by the refinery annually. Credit Suisse was one of the first banks to follow this trend and start to issue their own bullion products for their clients.
Credit Suisse took partial ownership of Valcambi SA in 1967, and this ownership increased in 1980. In 2003, the bank sold its majority share of Valcambi SA to European Gold Refineries, and Indian based bullion and commodities company.
Credit Suisse Gold Bars
Credit Suisse gold bars are available in a range of sizes, from 1 gram up to 1 kilogram. However, the most popular sizes by far are the ounce denominated bars, which were designed to cater to the American and world markets instead of the European Markets. Both the 1 Ounce and the 10 Ounce Credit Suisse bars are extremely popular investment choices. The 1 Ounce Credit Suisse gold bar is sold sealed in a plastic certicard to prevent damage, while the 10 Ounce bar comes with a separate assay certificate. Both bars feature the Credit Suisse Logo at the top, with the bar's weight, fineness and serial number located beneath. All Credit Suisse gold bars are 9999 fine.
The Credit Suisse Liberty Series
In response to PAMP beautifully designed bullion bar series, Credit Suisse has also launched the 'Liberty' series. These gold bars feature the same design on the front of each bar as the original Credit Suisse bars, however the reverse of the bar features an image of the Statue of Liberty. Liberty gold bars are available in smaller sizes, including 1 gram, 2 gram, 5 gram, 10 gram and 20 gram sized bars. Platinum liberty bars are also available.
