The largest gold bar commonly offered to investors is the 1 Kilo gold bar. Popular across a range of manufacturers, from historic companies like PAMP Suisse, Johnson Matthey, and Valcambi to modern, sovereign mints like the Perth Mint and Royal Canadian Mint, 1 Kilo gold bars are a favorite of investors.
A one-kilogram gold bar weighs exactly 1,000 grams, which is equivalent to approximately 32.15 troy ounces. In terms of dimensions, a standard one-kilogram gold bar typically measures around 80mm in width, 40mm in height, and 18mm in thickness. However, please note that these measurements can vary slightly depending on the manufacturer.
One-kilogram gold bars are usually made from highly pure gold, with a minimum purity level of 99.5% or 995 fineness. Some refineries and mints produce bars with even higher purity levels, such as 99.99% (999.9 fineness) or 99.999% (999.99 fineness). The level of purity is usually stamped on the bar, along with other essential markings.
To ensure authenticity and traceability, one-kilogram gold bars often bear specific markings. These can include the refiner’s or mint’s hallmark, which serves as a guarantee of the bar’s quality and origin. Additionally, each bar typically has a unique serial number engraved on it, providing a way to track and verify its history.
