The history of Gold bullion
The Gold Standard, a system where currency was attached to the price of Gold bars, bullion and coins, started to fall apart at the beginning of WW I. Nations did not want their currency limited by the amount of Gold bullion they had in reserve. They wanted to be able to flood the economy with paper money in order to finance the war and rebuild afterwards. Nations were also worried that buying Gold bars would be difficult as there had been no major Gold discoveries since the 1890s, so there was concern there might not be enough physical Gold to match the currency being printed. In addition, countries experienced different rates of inflation during the war, so getting all the nations back up to pre-war parities was going to be very difficult. Gold, like that found in 1/10 oz Gold bars and bullion, became the standard once again in the 1920s, with the introduction of a new type of Gold Standard, the Gold Exchange Standard.
Why invest in Gold bullion?
When investors buy Gold bullion, often the primary focus is on buying bigger and bigger bullion bars. When buying Gold bars, higher weights typically mean lower premiums over spot price and can make the best investments. Others buying Gold bars, though, believe larger bullion bars may be more difficult to sell in faltering economic times, and these investors like to buy fractional Gold bullion. As a result, Valcambi’s 1 oz Gold bars can be the ideal solution for both investor types: The 1 oz of .9995 fine Gold can offer a lower percentage premium over spot price, but yet 1/10 oz Gold increments can be broken off and sold if needed.
Invest 1/10 oz Gold bars in a Precious Metals IRA, where your investment can grow.
When buying Gold like 1/10 oz Gold bars in sheets of 10, you will want to consider whether to start a Precious Metals IRA. Before buying Gold bullion and other Precious Metals for your IRA, make sure you set up a custodian. Once you place Gold bars and other Precious Metals into your IRA, you will not need to worry about paying taxes on profits while it is left in the IRA, which is similar to standard IRAs. When you move your Gold bars and other Precious Metals out of the IRA, you will want to talk with your tax advisor about any potential tax liability.
When you buy Gold, the Gold spot price affects your bottom line.
When you buy Gold bullion, the Gold spot price is the base price of Gold in its unfabricated form, and this price is important because it affects your bottom line. When buying 1 oz Gold bars, the higher the spot price, the higher premium price you pay. When you buy Gold bars and other Precious Metals, the premium price includes the costs of fabrication, distribution, minor dealer fees and any numismatic or collector value. When buying Gold bars, you typically pay a slightly higher premium for smaller bars, but often these smaller bullion products are popular with people who have a tight budget. These Valcambi CombiBars with 1/10 oz bars that can be broken off a 1 oz Gold bar can also cost slightly more than a regular 1 oz bar of Gold.
