Buy Gold Bars Online from CBMint
Purchasing Gold Bullion Bars
Gold bars are the most common product for investors who buy gold bullion online. Although gold bullion coins are extremely popular, they are difficult to scale up to larger sizes. Indeed, gold coins containing more than 1 troy ounce of gold are very rare. Gold bullion bars, however, easily scale up to large sizes. Small, fractional gold bars are common, such as 1 gram gold bars, but also common are large gold bars, such as 1 kilogram gold bars, again, demonstrating how easy it is to scale up sizes to larger gold bars. However, the most common sizes of gold bars favored by investors who buy gold bars online are 1 ounce gold bars and 10 ounce gold bars, both of which are extremely popular bullion investment products.
Gold bullion bars usually feature little design -- just the name and logo of the mint, the gold fineness, and the weight. Some mints, however, manufacture gold bullion bars with beautiful and often historical designs. Known as gold art bars, these have value as collectibles, in addition to the melt value of gold in each bar. Common to almost all gold bars is the high gold fineness -- .999 and often even .9999, known as four-nines.
Investing in Gold Bars
Most gold bars are manufactured by private mints, such as the Perth Mint, PAMP, NTR, OPM, the Baird Mint, and many others. Years ago, many gold bars were poured gold bars, meaning they were produced by pouring molten gold into a mold. Today, however, gold bullion bars are mainly produced by stamping the bar out of a blank planchet of gold metal. This process is less expensive and time-consuming and produces a sharper, cleaner bar. The crisper design produced by stamping allows some truly beautiful gold art bars to be created, many of which are popular among people looking to buy gold gifts online.
Though many examples of decades-old gold bars still circulate in the bullion markets, CBMint only obtains gold bars direct from the manufacturer and their distributors, meaning that each gold bullion bar has full guarantees for authenticity and gold content. For US-based investors who buy gold bullion online, many gold bars are also considered eligible as IRA gold, allowing investors to place these physical gold bullion bars in a self-directed IRA.
