Gold By Weight

Gold By Weight

The larger the Gold bars, typically the better deal you receive with a lower premium over spot price paid.

Gold bars are refined Gold of any shape made by a recognized Gold producer, which has product that meets manufacturing, labeling and record keeping standards. Gold Bullion bars are produced in two ways – larger Gold bars are made by pouring molten Gold into molds that are called ingots. Smaller bars, like a 10 gram Gold bar, are minted or stamped from rolled Gold sheets. Gold bars, including the 1 oz Gold bar, are measured in grams or troy ounces, which is slightly heavier than the standard avoirdupois ounce.

Gold bars, including the 1 oz Gold bar and other Gold bars in different weights, are sold at what is known as the premium price. The premium price includes any dealer markup, costs of fabrication and distribution, and any numismatic or collector value added to the base price, known as the Gold spot price. Another factor: Typically larger Gold bullion bars, like a 10 oz Gold bar, have a lower premium per troy ounce than smaller Gold bars, like 1/2 oz Gold bars. The lighter Gold bars, like the 10 gram Gold bar, have a higher premium price per ounce but are easier to buy more regularly if you are on a tight budget. So when selecting Gold bars, decide what strategy works best for you: buying smaller Gold bars every month or buying larger Gold bars at longer intervals.

Once Gold bars are purchased, you have a few more decisions to make. Gold bullion bars are easy to stack, for just another reason to buy Precious Metal bullion bars, making them easy to store at home. But when 1 oz Gold bars and other bullion in your collection hits a certain amount, you may want to find another storage solution. Consider storing Gold bar bullion and other Precious Metal assets at Citadel Global Depository Services, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of APMEX that provides maximum security storage. Securely store Gold bars of all sizes at this private storage facility that is managed by world-leading security company, Brink’s.

On Gold bars of all sizes from APMEX, from a 10 Gram Gold bar to a 100 gram Gold bar, you will find printed the name of the manufacturer, the exact weight and the purity. When purchasing Gold bullion bars from APMEX, you are assured of quality, with only recognized and widely-traded brands like Engelhard, Johnson Matthey, Credit Suisse and PAMP Suisse being sold. For the condition of 100 gram Gold bars in the secondary market, look for normal wear and tear, but unlike numismatic coins, the aesthetic appearance is not the primary concern. It is the Gold content. Physical Gold, whether in a 5 oz Gold bar or a 1 oz Gold coin, is considered worth holding no matter what format or size you choose, because it has a universal value recognized and held by most central banks.
