Buying Physical Gold Bullion Bars & Coins

Buying gold bullion bars can be an effective method to acquire physical gold at a relatively low cost per troy-ounce. Bars are available in a variety of sizes ranging from a standard 1-troy ounce to 400-ounces. Gold ingots are generally pure gold, with an industry standard minimum fineness of .995 fine, ensuring the highest quality, purity and clarity. Gold bullion bar prices include a small premium to cover manufacturing costs.

A popular alternative, gold bullion coins are easy to buy, hold, divide and trade. They are issued by government mints and are legal tender in the country in which they are produced; and thus, the coins' face value, metal purity and content are guaranteed. Most modern gold bullion coins contain exactly one-ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce or tenth-ounce of pure gold, while older issues contain other fractional amounts.

Where to Buy Gold

As with any investment, knowing the background and legitimacy of the gold dealer you are investing with is of the utmost importance. Established dealers offer gold bars that are produced by recognized manufacturers and refiners. However, investors should expect to pay an assay fee when selling or buying gold bullion through a dealer to ensure the purity and authenticity of the asset. These assay checks determine the legitimacy of the metal, assuring the safety of both parties. With billions of dollars in transaction volume, a sizable buy-and-sell market, high quality gold bullion products and consistently competitive prices, Monex remains a preferred source for buying gold.
