The history of Valcambi Gold bars
Investing in Gold bars, whether its Gold by the gram or a 1 kilogram bar, has been a key component of wealth preservation for hundreds of years. Valcambi, producers of Gold bars and creator of the innovative CombiBar, has been refining and manufacturing Gold since 1961, when it was established as Valori and Cambi in Balerna, Switzerland. The first Gold by the gram Valcambi CombiBar was issued in April 2011, an innovation that allows buyers to hold 50 grams of Gold that is divisible in 1 gram increments. Valcambi, originators of these unique 1 gram Gold bars and the world’s largest Gold refiner, was bought by Rajesh Exports of India, the world’s largest Gold jewelry makers in 2015.
Why invest in Gold bars?
Investing in Gold bars is a good way to diversify your portfolio. Investing in Gold by the gram or the ounce is a good way to offset other investments because the main goal of diversification is to find investments that are not closely correlated to each other. In other words, each investment should historically behave in different ways so if one is down, the other is up. For example, in the 1970s, Gold bars did well and the stock market performed poorly. Investors who use 1 gram Gold bars like the Valcambi CombiBar or other Gold bullion as a way to offset paper investments can reduce their overall risk.
The Gold in your Gold bars came from one of three sources.
When you buy Gold bars, where does the raw Gold in your bar most likely come from? Your 1 gram Gold bar came from one of three sources. Whether it is Gold by the gram or a Gold coin, the Gold either came from reserve Gold that a government or bank decided to sell off (1.5%), recycled Gold (37%) or mining (61.4%). When Investing in Gold bars, Gold supply is a major factor: There is only so much Gold in the world. In fact, according to Forbes and other estimates, all the Gold ever mined in the world (estimated at 171,000 tons of Gold above ground) would fit into about three Olympic-sized swimming pools, or a 20 meter x 20 meter x 20 meter cube.
When investing in Gold, understand India’s relationship with Gold bars and Gold jewelry.
Just before October, those investing in Gold bars often expect a surge in Gold demand from India (although imports to India have dropped in the past few years). What is this connection with Gold bars and India that happens around the same time every year? Gold, like that found in 1 gram Gold bars, has a special connection to Indian culture, and is gifted extensively during celebrations and weddings. Gold by the gram, or jewelry, is especially important on Dhanteras, a day for celebrating wealth and the first day of Diwali, the five-day festival of lights celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains.
