The Credit Suisse Gold Bar is one of the most admired gold bars in the world. Made by the world-famous Credit Suisse Group, this bar has Switzerland’s reputation for high-quality bullion and coinage. The Credit Suisse group dates back to 1856 and is a Swiss financial holdings company. Additionally, this company is a large producer of precious metals and is a powerful international banking institution. Each gold bar is backed by the Bank of Switzerland and has a unique serial number. In 1979 the Credit Suisse Gold Bar was first made available. They have never stopped producing these bars since then. Not only do they have a rich history, but they are also one of the most secure, affordable ways to own physical gold. Furthermore, in Switzerland, the Valcambi refinery produces these bars and has been the sole manufacturing partner for authentic Credit Suisse Gold Bars.
These gold bars are instantly recognizable and feature a distinct design. Not only are they beautiful gold bars, but they also aren’t too flashy. These bars are thin rectangles with smoothed edges. The front of each bar displays the gold fineness, gold content, and unique serial number. The 1 gram gold bar reads “1g, FINE GOLD, 999.9”. Furthermore, the Credit Suisse Gold Bar features a simple logo design. The logo consists of only the words “CREDIT SUISSE” inside a rectangular box. Underneath this box is a smaller box with the French words “ESSAYEUR FONDEUR”. This translates to “Melting Tester”. The reason the words are in French is that for a long time the commerce in this region of Europe was historically done in French. On the back of the Credit Suisse Gold Bar features diagonally repeating copies of the logo that is also on the front of the bar.
