FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Gainesville Coins Featured in NBC News Story
Lutz, Florida – January 28, 2013 – Gainesville Coins and its newest silver product, The CombiBar was featured on Tampa Bay’s NBC morning show News Channel 8 Today on WFLA on Monday, Jan. 28, 2013. The Lutz-based company is one of few U.S. precious metal dealers selling the detachable bars.
The size of a credit card, CombiBars are easily broken into small individual sections. They are made in 100×1 and 10×10 gram sizes. The pieces are easily detached without losing any metal or leaving sharp edges. Each 100-gram bar contains 3.215 oz of .999 pure silver.
Silver CombiBars are considered by many as the latest financial comfort food in times of crisis. Pre-scored like a chocolate bar, the 100-gram silver bullion bars could be used to trade or purchase goods and services. Interest in the CombiBar as an alternative form of payment has been rising, amid increasing fears of an economic meltdown.
The idea for detachable bullion came about in 2010. The global banking and European currency crises caused investors to consider putting their money in larger amounts of smaller bars, rather than a few large ones. This would increase liquidity and make precious metal collections more suitable for everyday trading.
CombiBars are produced by the Swiss refinery Valcambi, one of the largest gold refiners in the world. Valcambi has manufactured the gold bars for Credit Suisse for nearly 40 years.

The bars can be easily separated along the score lines, and have no sharp edges. Each minibar has the purity and weight stamped on it, along with the Valcambi logo and assayer’s stamp. These bars are perfect for situations where cash is not readily available, such as after natural disasters, or for barter in remote areas. They can also be divided into blocks and used as gifts.
