Gold Bullion Bars
Gold bullion bars are a good way to build an investsment in gold. The bullion bars are stamped with the refinement and weight of
gold contained and can be an efficient way to purchase gold when buying large quantities. Gold bars range in size by weight from
1 gram, 1 ounce, 10 ounces, 1 kilogram, 100 ounces and finally the gigantic 400 ounce gold bullion bars.
The latter are how governments and central banks store their gold. The best way for individuals to invest in gold bullion is probably
through 32.15 ounce (1 kilogram) bars. These are very popular in the retail gold bullion market worldwide, especially in Europe,
the Middle East, and Asia. North Americans tend to either purchase smaller gold bars (1 - 10 ounces) or gold coins.
The larger gold bullion bars are not so simple to handle and store so often their purchase is most practical only when the
intention is to store the gold bullion in a qualified precious metals repository or bank. You don’t have to take physical
delivery of the gold bullion and the larger bars can be bought or sold without the need of an assay. But, many precious metals
investing experts recommend that you take physical delivery of your gold and privately arrange for secure storage.
Overall, gold bullion bars and coins can should have a role to play in any diversified investment portfolio. They may not be as liquid as smaller
size coins but provide the security of gold without high overhead costs and premiums sometimes associated with gold coins.
