Swiss Bank Corporation, also known under its French name, la Swiss Bank Corporation, also known under its French name, la Société de Banque Suisse (SBS), is a bank founded in 1872. It grew by opening branches, doing mergers and buying back several banks throughout its history. Notably, it was one of the first banks to open a branch in New York in 1939.
The Société de banque Suisse (SBS) merged with the Union de banques suisses in 1998 to create one of the foremost financial institutions in the world: UBS.
Most Swiss Bank Corporation gold bars (as this one), from 1934 to 1998 (when the bank merged with UBS), were minted by Métaux Précieux SA, now known as Metalor Refining Group, headquartered in Neuchâtel, near Zurich. The Metalor Group focuses its business on refining precious metals, doing so specifically with gold in Hong Kong, China, Singapore and the United States, just south of Boston at North Attleboro, MA. After significant expansions were undertaken in 2011, the facilities account for a total annual worldwide capacity of 650 metric tons of gold, 150 metric tons of which are processed at the Massachusetts plant. Metalor also refines silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium.
