Valcambi Suisse is one of the most important precious metals refineries on the planet. Situated in Balerna, Switzerland, it refines more gold than any other facility in the world and also refines silver, platinum, and palladium. Originally named Valori & Cambi, the company opened in 1961. It changed its name six years later. It is currently owned by Global Gold Refineries AG. It produces minted rounds, bars, coins, and other casting products, as well as providing assay, storage, and transportation services. In addition to its traditional precious metals offerings, the mint also produces green gold products, which are highly sought after by many collectors.
