    Gram Gold Bars

    Purchasing Gram-Kilo Gold Bullion Bars

    Most people who are familiar with precious metals investing are aware that gold bars come in ounce sizes, but many of those same people have no idea that gram and kilogram gold bars exist, as well. These gold bars are just as good of an investment as ounce-sized bars and are often produced by the many of the same companies. Whether you are looking to add to an investment or start an entirely new investment venture, gram and kilogram gold bars may be just what you are looking for.

    Producers of Gram-Kilo Gold Bars

    One of the first things you will notice about gold bars for sale in Gram and Kilo weights is the sheer variety of weights available. This is the beauty of gold bars when compared to almost any other form of gold bullion you can buy. While any given gold bullion coin program may offer four or five weights, gold bullion bars in a single program can come in a wide range of weights that include everything from 1 Gram, 2.5 Gram, 5 Gram, and 10 Gram gold up to 20 Gram, 50 Gram, 100 Gram, and even 1 Kilogram of gold.

    There are numerous parallels between ounce gold bars and gram/kilogram gold bars, the first and most obvious being that a number of different companies produce them. These companies have been around for varying amounts of time and are located in different parts of the world. We only carry gram and kilogram gold bars from the most trusted and respected mints in the world, giving you the confidence that you are investing in only the highest quality gold bullion.

    Among the companies that regularly produce gold bars in these weights, you will find giants of the precious metals industry such as PAMP Suisse, Valcambi Suisse, Geiger Edelmetalle, and the Perth Mint. These producers are among the largest refiners of precious metals in the world and have storied backgrounds that include:

    • PAMP Suisse: Arguably the leading bullion brand in the world, PAMP was founded in Ticino, Switzerland, in 1977 and produces some of the most popular gold bar collections you will find online.
    • Valcambi Suisse: Founded in 1961 in Balerna, Switzerland, Valcambi was originally known as Valori & Cambi. Its growth over time resulted in its acquisition by Credit Suisse in 1968, its sale to European Gold Refineries in 2003, and its more recent acquisition by Global Gold Refineries Ltd. in 2017.
    • Geiger Edelmetalle: One of Europe’s oldest silver refiners, Geiger Edelmetalle formed in 1218 in the silver-rich Saxony region of Germany near modern Leipzig. The facility remains an active producer of silver and gold bullion, and issues a wide range of gold bullion bars.
    • Perth Mint: A state-owned mint in the state of Western Australia, the Perth Mint was once a branch facility of the Royal Mint of England on the Australian continent. Today, it operates independently of the Royal Australian Mint and produces some of the finest gold coins and bars in the world.

    Examples of Popular Gram-Kilo Gold Bar Designs

    It would be exhausting and tedious to detail all of the gold bar programs in which you could find Gram-Kilo Gold bars, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few standouts that can be highlighted as some of the best-selling design collections in the world. Sticking with the list above, consider the following designs:

    • Fortuna: The first major gold bullion bar collection to feature intricate design elements going beyond mere logos and inscriptions, the Fortuna lineup from PAMP Suisse is one of the most diverse in the world. Whether it is a large gold bar or small platinum bar, all of these specimens have a left-profile bust of Fortuna on the obverse with a cornucopia on her head that flows down to her hands where it spills forth a wealth of coins.
    • Rosa: A more delicate design than Fortuna, Rosa is also produced by PAMP Suisse and features a single rose stem on its obverse. That single stem has a number of rose petals in bloom, along with the thorns that make the rose beautiful and potentially harmful.
    • Lunar Gold: Producers such as PAMP Suisse and Argor-Heraeus issue gold bars with special lunar designs that change with each year on the calendar. The designs always coincide with the animals present on the Zodiac that year and the specific designs are only available in the year in which that animal features on the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
    • Mint Logos: The most common design element you will find on Gram-Kilo gold bars are mint logos. Whether it is the rectangular seal of Credit Suisse, the twisting square logo of Valcambi, or the beautiful Swan logo of the Perth Mint, these simple logos have become symbols of quality to gold buyers around the world.

    Security Features

    In this day in age, when you invest in a gold bar you want to do everything in your power to ensure that the bar you bought is, in fact, real. Counterfeits are becoming an increasingly common occurrence and because of this producers of gold bars are always looking for ways to add security features to their gold bars that ensure the authenticity of your purchase.

    The first and most commonly found type of security measure present on gram gold bars is an assay card. An assay card is a certification from the producing mint that your bar is gold and is real. Most smaller gold bars have an assay card physically attached to them, though others simply are accompanied by one.
