Purchasing gold bars is an easy and safe way to invest in physical gold. In recent years, gold bars have attracted a lot of interest from both public investors and private collectors. Considering gold bars come in various forms and sizes, finding one that meets your budget isn’t a problem especially when looking at gram and kilo sized bullion.
One of the biggest benefits to owning gold bars is that they are easy to trade. Although special or limited edition gold coins or bars are sometimes hard to find, traditional gram and kilo sizes are readily available for purchase and sale. Another common benefit to investing in bullion bars is that it’s usually cheaper to buy gold bars as opposed to gold coins because the premiums are lower. This means that you’ll essentially pay a smaller markup over the current spot price of gold than you would for a coin.
Before the dawn of the Internet, public investors and private collectors had to contact retail or wholesale dealers to purchase gold bars. Today, it’s easier than ever to browse a provider’s collection, buy gold bars directly from the source, and store them in a special vault that’s highly secure. It’s important that investors and collectors find a reputable source with whom to conduct business. Silver.com offers an exquisite array of the most sought-after gold bars on the market. Each gold bar from Silver.com is produced by world-renowned companies like PAMP (Produit Artistiques Metaux Precieux) Suisse, Valcambi, Credit Suisse and Geiger Edelmetalle among others.
Just as there are many mints who produce gold bars, there are a number of different types and sizes of gram and kilo gold bars. They range from brand-new bars which come in an assay card, to cast and poured bars which come with a certificate of authenticity. Though the options are pretty much unlimited, the most common sizes and brands are listed below.
The 1 Gram PAMP Suisse Gold Bar is the smallest of its kind on Silver.com. Although it’s extremely small — only slightly larger than a cell phone’s sim card — it makes for a great first investment. The front of the bar features PAMP’s signature mint mark while the back of it has the .9999 purity, the 1 gram weight, and a unique serial number that helps protect investors and collectors against counterfeits. Because it’s so small, it’s held in a protective plastic case with an assay card attached to it. An assay card is just another way of protecting the bar from damage and proving its authenticity.
Like the 1 Gram PAMP Suisse Gold Bar, the 2.5 gram bar is minted with a .9999 purity and includes unique serial numbers. The artwork on the front of the gold bar draws its inspiration from classic Roman mythology. It depicts Fortuna, the goddess responsible for a person’s fate and prosperity. Although she’s known as Lady Luck, investors and collectors will be the ones feeling lucky after they’ve added this exquisite gold bar to their collection.
The 5 Gram PAMP Suisse Gold Bar is no different than it’s smaller versions, but because of its bigger size, investors and collectors are able to see the PAMP Suisse logo clearly on the back of the bar. Below the logo are all the important numbers including the gold bar’s weight and purity. In this case, that’s 5 grams and .9999 purity. The “Essayeur Fonduer” insignia is inscribed at the bottom of the bar along with its unique serial number for verification purposes.
Like the 1 gram, 2.5 gram, and 5 gram versions, the 10 Gram PAMP Suisse Gold Bar has a .9999 purity and includes all the same detailed features. In fact, it’s the biggest gold bar of its kind, displaying every detail perfectly to the human eye.
This 10 Gram Sunshine Gold Bar is perfect for investors and collectors who want to diversify their portfolio of precious metals. Each Sunshine Gold Bar is struck from 99.99 percent 24-karat gold. In addition to an assay certificate to ensure its authenticity, the gold bar comes protected in a tamper evident package. The Sunshine Minting Inc., located in Idaho, supplies this gold bar. Its mint mark is included on the front of the gold bar.
This is a collection of 25 1-Gram PAMP Suisse Gold Bars. The 25 gold bars come in an organized package that lets investors and collectors look at them individually all at once. These bars are ideal for the investor who seeks highly divisible gold pieces as each 1 gram bar can be broken off individually.
The 50 gram Valcambi gold CombiBars are composed of .9999 gold. These gold bars are broken down into 50 1-gram pieces so that you can disperse this investment in individual pieces as needed. Like the other gold bars on Silver.com, the 50 gram Valcambi gold CombiBars comes with an assay card to ensure its high quality with each 1 gram piece marked with its purity, weight and mint-mark.
Unlike the previous two packages, the 100 Gram PAMP Suisse Cast Gold Bar can’t be broken down into individual pieces. Each bar is hand poured into a classic loaf shape, containing 3.215 ounces of .9999 pure gold. The front of each bar includes the Suisse mint stamp, the weight of the bar, its purity, and its unique serial number.
Pricing for these gram and kilo sized precious gold bars varies depending on the weight of the bar(s), as well as the brand you purchase.
