When it comes to our offering of 1 oz gold bars, you are spoiled for choice as we offer a wide variety of products from companies located all over the world. Almost all of our 1 oz gold bars are stamped with a .9999 purity and 1 oz weight indication. In most cases, the mintmark or name of the producing mint is also stamped into the gold bar.
Whether you are a beginning investor who is looking to start a precious metals portfolio, or an experienced investor who is making an addition to an existing investment, 1 oz gold bars are a great choice.
Even though 1 oz gold bars are among the smallest bullion bars in the industry, their size can be deceiving due to the massive value they carry.
We carry 1 oz gold bars produced by a number of different companies, and even though these bars often have the same purity, their prices can be quite different. This difference in price is nothing more than different brand names charging different prices for similar products. Just like two similar pairs of jeans from two different companies will carry different price tags, two 1 oz gold bars from different companies will vary in price, as well. If you are like most investors and only concerned about the weight and purity of a bar as opposed to its brand name, finding the cheapest 1 oz bar will be your end goal. After all, the resale value of a gold bar is gauged more by the bar's weight and purity than it is by the brand name stamped into the bar.
Beginning investors, or those who simply do not have much room in their residence for the storage of precious metals, are drawn to 1 oz gold bars due to their small size. Every 1 oz gold bar we offer is able to fit comfortably in a pants pocket, a testament to how small these bars really are. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need some large vault or special room in order to store your gold bars seeing that even an investment of 50 1 oz gold bars will still be able to fit in an average desk drawer or something of comparable size.
Storage of their precious metals is something many investors neglect to take into consideration, though with 1 oz gold bars storing your metal is as easy as it can possibly be.
Something that comes standard with just about every 1 oz gold bar on the market today is an assay card. For these gold bars an assay card serves two purposes, the first is as a means of protecting your bar and the other is a way to verify the authenticity of your gold.
An assay card, in terms of a 1 oz gold bars, is an authenticity card attached to a plastic case which houses and protects your gold. Since the gold is never meant to be taken out of its plastic housing, an assay card from the producing mint is necessary to guarantee the authenticity of the bar you purchased.
1 oz gold bars are arguably the most widely sought after gold bars on the market today, and for this reason they are produced by a vast number of mints. Even those mints who do not have a large offering of gold bullion tend to always make sure they offer 1 oz bars.
The large number of producing mints translates into increased competition, meaning that these mints will constantly be attempting to offer their products at prices lower than their competitors. The consumer always wins when there is a higher incidence of competition as no one company can have a stranglehold on the product which is being offered.
