Now You Can Buy a Real Gold Bar the Size of a Credit Card – from Goldsilver2u.comPosted: April 18, 2013
Every now and then, banks around the world launch yet another latest, cool, and ridiculous credit card design, size, technology, art, and so on.
Today, one of the crazier things emerges in the market, that is, a gold credit card, literally made of 50gm of 999.9 pure gold.
This isn’t exactly a credit card per se, but it’s the size of a credit card that one can easily slip in his/her wallet to be pulled out to purchase goods, just like a normal credit card. This credit card is called the Valcambi Gold CombiBar.
Pictured beside is the 50-gram version of the so-called “CombiBar,” which as you can see, looks just like a solid gold credit card. The amazing product is offered by a leading Swiss gold refiner, Valcambi that has been selling over 1000 tons of gold annually. That accounts for about 25% of total global gold demand!
You might be more familiar with the famous Credit Suisse brand gold bar, issued by the mega Swiss bank Credit Suisse. In fact, the Credit Suisse gold bar has been produced by the same manufacturer of Combibar, Valcambi.
Setting The New Standard For Physical Gold
Some call it the new gold standard in gold, the Valcambi Gold CombiBars™ is specially designed to be broken off easily, by hand, into one-gram pieces.
The 5 by 10 grid design are engineered in such a way so that each square can be broken into exactly one gram of gold without any loss of material. It’s international hallmark, weight, element, purity, the Valcambi name and logo are all stamped onto each of the smaller pieces for easy identification when used as an individual piece.
Each breakable Gold CombiBars™ comes with a unique serial code, including 2 letters and 6 numbers stamped on the bar, plus a serial numbered certificate.
More To Do With Gold
It has been a challenge for gold owners to divide gold into smaller pieces for easier trading until the credit card sized 50g gold CombiBars™ comes into the picture. At $1,600 an ounce, gold is worth a lot. It would be hard to spend a one-ounce gold coin on everyday situation should the need of using it as a method of payment arises.
Similar to the 1 gram Chinese New Year Ya-Sui gold coin “Golden Flow of Success” that was introduced by the Tomei Gold and Jewellery chain stores earlier this year, the CombiBars™ is particularly popular among grandparents who want to give their grandchildren a strip of gold rather than a coin.
Nevertheless, be it for endowment or gifts or savings or investment or trading this innovative divisible gold CombiBars™ is sure to provide everyone, not just investors, with an accessible and flexible option for managing their physical gold holdings.
Each 50 g Valcambi Gold CombiBars™ is security sealed into an PETG (glycol modified polyethylene terephthalate) wrapping which contains a serial numbered assay certificate. The highly durable PETG packaging is also crack/ scratch resistance- ideal for protecting the valuable gold bars or as gifts.
The advantage of buying large quantities of regular small 1g bars versus one large bar are the lower premium pricing, flexibility and storage as they can easily be piled up in a safe or deposit box.
This particular product sells for a about RM 9,000 at GoldSilver2u.com although the price can and will change as the price of gold fluctuates.
