If you are eager to invest in gold, the most traditional manner of doing so would be purchasing gold bars. It would be particularly wise if you are just starting to put together an investment portfolio of precious metals, as the price premiums attached to bars are often lower than those of gold coins.
We offer, based on availability, bars minted from .9999 pure gold. There are 20 grams of this 24 karat gold in each of these bars, which have been produced by - and, indeed, bear the hallmarks of - Metalor, Perth, Johnson Matthey, Heraeus, Credit Suisse and other companies.
Gold in many different forms, including those of the gold bullion coins the Krugerrand and the Gold American Eagle, are in listings on this website. However, buying gold bullion bars is an especially cost-effective way of starting or adding to a stack of physical precious metals. So, whether you want to ease yourself into collecting precious metals or add to an existing collection, you shouldn't fret.
A special merit of one of our 20 gram bars, in particular, is that its price point will be lower than that of a full ounce gold bar. That bar will weigh 31.1 grams each, while the 20 gram bar will weigh .643 Troy ounces; however, the two types of bar are so near in weight and size that, should you lack experience of holding each, you could easily mistake one for the other.
Therefore, if a single Troy oz gold bar, the size of gold bar most commonly traded globally, is beyond your financial reach for the time being, picking up a 20 gram gold bar could be a good alternative move. Such is the rarity and value of gold that even small amounts can be worth surprisingly a lot. Other size gold bars with listings on our site include 1 gram and 10 gram pieces. While each 20 gram gold bar that we deliver comes with a guarantee, the company that was responsible for making the bar you receive will be a random choice largely influenced by the availability of the 20 gram gold bars in the stock here at U.S. Gold Bureau.
Bars from different companies can feature different designs, too. A good case in point is that, while Perth bars will have the mint's easy-to-recognize swan logo on its front and silhouettes of hopping kangaroos on the back, a Credit Suisse bar could greatly differ. Should you receive one, it could show, on the reverse, the face and torso of the Statue of Liberty.
Alternatively, you might receive a gold bar on which an elaborate design is largely absent, with the mint's logo or name and the bar's weight and gold purity instead mainly shown. A gold bar from Heraeus or Metalor could turn out to be like this.
Not only could a 20 gram gold bar prove great for injecting more diversity into an investment portfolio, it could also form part of a self-directed IRA. If this particularly appeals to you, please phone (800) 775-3504 to ask one of our investment specialists about the further requirements.
