Ten oz gold bars are more of a medium-sized gold bars as there are plenty of bars smaller than them and a few bigger than them, as well. These bars are offered by a variety of different companies, though the selection of companies producing 10 oz gold bars is significantly smaller than those producing 1 oz gold bars.
As far as investment is concerned, 10 oz gold bars constitute a sizable initial investment, as well as a fairly large addition to an existing investment.
All of our 10 oz gold bars have a purity of .9999 and most of the time that indication is stamped directly onto the bar in addition to the 10 oz weight and the mintmark of the producing mint.
There are quite a few different producers of 10 oz gold bars, and due to this fact, the price you pay for a 10 oz bar will vary slightly depending on who produced the bar. In reality it does not matter who produced the bar so long as it is 10 ounces and carries a purity of .9999. Seeing as most investors have an end goal of reselling their gold in hopes of turning a profit, finding a 10 oz bar for the lowest possible price is imperative.
Like their smaller 1 oz counterparts, 10 oz gold bars are easy to handle and store due to the fact that, despite their massive value, their size is quite small. Ten oz gold bars are able to fit just about anywhere safely and securely. Many people are under the impression that in order to invest in precious metals it is a requirement to own a vault or lock box, though such is not the case. So long as you have a small, safe place set aside in your residence, your gold bars will be just as safe as they would be in a lock box.
Some of our 10 oz gold bars are accompanied and protected by an assay card. An assay card is more or less a plastic housing with a certification that works to both protect your gold bar and certify its authenticity. While some of our 10 oz gold bars are accompanied by protective assay, others are shipped to you with a separate assay card which looks more like a business card.
Some other gold bars, instead of having an assay card, simply have a serial number stamped into the bar itself. This serial number is unique to your bar and your bar only and can be verified by the producing mint.
