φ our inspiration

Phi is the Greek letter which represents the "golden ratio", an irrational number (1.618…) with many unusual mathematical properties. During the Renaissance, artists referred to the golden ratio as the "Divine Proportion" and made use of it as they strove for beauty and balance in the design of art. The "golden ratio" is our inspiration for the concept idea and design of our coins.

Passion in creation

We are passionate about our business. We are dedicated to the creation of new standards, pioneering in the realms of design and technology. We are committed to producing precious metal coins that will last for generations. We strive to excel in using the best techniques and look to innovation in order to deliver the ultimate reference coins and round ingots. We believe in combining the best of the past with the best of the future in order to deliver the ultimate product.

Aesthetic store of value

At Swiss Bullion Corp, we believe that quality and security should not substitute the allure and artistry of fine craftsmanship: to design our Swiss Bullion round ingot we have selected Roger Pfund, the internationally renowned Swiss graphic artist well known for his design of the banknotes of numerous countries. He is also responsible for the logo of our company and its corporate identity.

Swiss Made

Switzerland is recognized as one of the world’s most important centers for the exchange and transformation of precious metals. It is also home to the watch making "manufacture", a truly Swiss tradition, whereby local watchmakers call upon the expertise of the best possible artisans in each area of specialisation, in order to assemble the finest timepieces. Swiss Bullion Corp follows this same tradition, by bringing together the skill sets of a trustworthy refiner, the research and development expertise of an exceptional team of security engineers and the artistic qualities of a specialised and talented graphic artist, to produce attractive and secure bullion coins and ingots of the highest quality. This unique combination allies time-honoured practices and traditions, with technological innovation and a modern approach to art.

The word "bullion" reportedly originates from Claude de Bullion (13th October 1569 – 22nd December 1640), a French aristocrat and politician who served as Minister of Finance under Louis XIII from 1632 to 1640. An alternative theory suggests that it comes from the old French word "bouillon", which meant "boiling" and was the term for a mint or melting house.

In our search for ultimate security and in our fight against forgery, we have devoted a considerable amount of time to extensive research and have developed a unique digital authentication and certification architecture for precious metal coins, with special emphasis on gold. This architecture consists of a combination of technologies that makes each of our coins unique, easily identifiable and irreproducible. On our coins, we engrave an aztec code containing its serial number and a "url" link to its digital authentication certificate.

Finest minting quality

In order to guarantee the finest minting quality, Swiss Bullion Corp has selected the best Swiss professionals in precious metals metallurgy and in minting to produce its 1 ounce and 1 kilo bullion coins and ingots.

Exclusive hallmark

In Switzerland, precious metal articles must bear the mark that qualifies their fineness and must equally bear a responsibility mark, in accordance with the Swiss Precious Metal Control Act. Swiss Bullion Corp is duly registered and holds its own hallmark: φ, our own representation of "Phi", the Greek letter which stands for the golden ratio.

Investment gold

In February 2013, the Swiss Federal Tax Administration, a division of the Federal Department of Finance, granted Swiss Bullion Corp the right to produce one ounce and one kilo Swiss bullion round ingots (999,9/1000 fineness). This qualifies our round ingots as "investment gold", as per regular gold bars and, as such, they are VAT exempt.
