Realization of investment gold

The Metals Banks can also offer services to sector operators.
The main activities include the collection of used gold and silver. Once collected, Banco Metalli are the only ones authorized for the fusion and subsequent creation of investment gold and silver in the form of collector coins or ingots.
This commercial activity is also suitable for the examination and analysis of the purity and carat weight of the precious items purchased, a service not available elsewhere.
