APMEX has created a process to guarantee that our customers receive only authentic Precious Metals products. TEP Packaging is your symbol of guarantee that these bars were processed straight from mint-sealed boxes, exactly as they were delivered, providing peace-of-mind when buying, holding or selling.
APMEX individually seals each 1 oz APMEX Gold Bar to ensure that the authenticity and condition of each bar is protected after they are removed directly from the boxes. Each bar is placed in a protective authentication card composed of a non-reactive plastic polymer to protect your bar's finish.
The sealing process seals the bar within the authentication card, creating a tamper-evident package that will guarantee your investment indefinitely. If the tamper-evident package has been opened in any way, you will know it. After the process is completed, the bar in the tamper-evident package is removed from the machine and checked to ensure that the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished 1 oz Gold APMEX Bar in TEP Packaging.
By using this process, APMEX can guarantee that the bars you receive are authentic and in the exact condition as they were when they left the mint. This process gives investors confidence in their purchase, knowing that they can buy, hold or sell an authentic bar — guaranteed.
The history of Gold bars
Gold bars, what most people think of when they think of investment Gold, are generally created one of two ways: either cast by pouring Gold into an ingot mold or struck by being cut out of a flat piece of Gold. Smaller sizes, such as this 1 oz Gold bar, are usually struck. When investing in Gold, you can buy Gold bars in a variety of sizes, from 1/2 gram up to a kilo.
Why invest in a 1 oz Gold bar?
A 1 oz Gold bar available at APMEX is the easiest way to sell and buy Gold, offering a convenient size with a ready market. Gold bars typically have a lower premium over the Gold spot price than Gold coins, so your investment is based purely on the quantity and quality of the Gold and not on factors such as the desirability or popularity of a design. Many people buy Gold bullion as a hedge against currency markets and property bubbles because Gold’s value moves separately from other investment types. Investing in Gold is also popular because it gives you a physical asset that has intrinsic value, unlike stocks and bonds.
Production of the 1 oz Gold bar for APMEX meets the highest standards for quality.
The APMEX 1 oz Gold bar was produced by Sunshine Minting, one of the leading international suppliers of Precious Metals and base-metal products. When you buy Gold bullion stamped with the APMEX logo, you are guaranteed to get .9999 fine Gold. Investing in Gold at APMEX comes with the peace of mind of knowing you are getting what you pay for.
A 1 oz Gold bar is weighed in troy ounces, a long-used standard for Precious Metals.
A 1 oz Gold bar is measured in troy ounces, which weighs about 10 percent more than the better-known avoirdupois ounce typically used to measure everyday items. Note that Gold bars weighing 1 ounce weigh 1 troy ounce. Even if Gold bullion is sold in grams or kilograms, the cost has been converted from the price of Gold in troy ounces in U.S. dollars. As a result, you can buy Gold bullion for the same price all over the world. When investing in Gold, make sure you know how the price compares with the spot price in troy ounces.
