Credit Suisse Gold bars are one of the most popular brands of gold bars available gold investors worldwide. In the 1970's, Credit Suisse became aware of the need for individual or retail investment gold and precious metals products. At this time, they introduced their own range of gold bars, which were available in smaller sizes. These included 1 Ounce and 1 Kilogram gold bars. Initially Credit Suisse gold bars were only available to clients of Credit Suisse, however, the bank quickly recognized the demand and the market for these smaller sized gold bars, and Credit Suisse launched a line of gold bars available to any individuals looking to buy gold bars.
Today, Credit Suisse sell a range of gold bullion bars, with sizes from 1 gram to 1 kilogram available to gold investors. Credit Suisse has also launched a line of silver, platinum and palladium bars, which are equally popular with investors.
All Credit Suisse precious metals bars are manufactured for the bank by Valcambi SA, one of Switzerland's most prominent precious metals refineries. The bars feature the Credit Suisse logo at the top, and at the bottom is the Valcambi hallmark.
