Cast, hand-poured silver bars such as these are more affordable than minted ingots because the production process that results in the finished product is less cumbersome and quicker to complete. Cast bars are manufactured by melting silver and then pouring it into prefabricated, heat-resistant molds. The bars are left in those molds to cool and stamped with identifying markers and a mint logo at the appropriate time during the cooling process. As a result of the cooling process, cast silver bars often have unique striations that reflect the position of the silver within the mold as it cooled.
Obverse design elements of 100 oz Valcambi Cast Silver Bars include the mint logo at the top, with several other markings running down the vertical face of the silver bar. Along with the logo and mint name at the top, you will find the metal content, purity, weight, and date of issue for the bar.
Reverse fields on Valcambi Cast Silver Bars are left blank on purpose by the mint. You may find striations or other visual elements on this face reflective of the silvers position within the mold after being poured in.
Valcambi Suisse was founded in 1961 as Valori & Cambi. Its logo appears simple in nature, but actually has a complex origin that dates back hundreds of years and can be found in various cultures. The logo consists of a square within which four equal triangles mesh together. These triangles are representative of the 400 oz LBMA Good Delivery bars from Valcambi cut diagonally.
