Buying Gold bars is a common way to invest in gold bullion. Offered in weights varying from 1 gram to 1 kilo, pure Gold bars (.9999 fine) are minted by sovereign mints around the world. Investors are attracted to Gold bars due to the fact that they carry a lower premium (amount you pay over the spot price) than Gold coins. This allows investors to accumulate more ounces in Gold at a lower premium amount. Be advised though that when liquidating (selling) your bars, you will receive less from a dealer, reflecting the lower premium originally paid.
Gold bars are valued based on the actual Gold content within the bar. Then a small premium for the fabrication and distribution costs is added to the cost of the bar. We carry Gold bars from all of the world mints and reputable refiners including the Royal Canadian Mint, Perth Mint, PAMP Suisse, Credit Suisse, Valcambi, Elemetal and Sunshine Mint.
