Ranging in size from 1-kilogram all the way down to 1-gram, gold bars serve to protect investors from a host of factors that can negatively impact the value of stocks or cash holdings. Continue reading for other reasons why you should buy and hold gold bars in your investment portfolio.
Why should I buy gold bars?
Throughout the ages, gold is the one asset that consistently holds its value, especially amidst economic chaos, war and other events that can negatively impact things like stocks, housing and cash. You can also hold and store gold bars on your own, which adds to the security these investments offer.
And besides the inherent stability of gold itself, gold bars generally sell for much lower premium than coins since their production costs are lower (…no elaborate designs, little stamping needed). As far as purity, most gold bars are 99.99% pure gold while many coins contain trace amounts of other elements like copper.
(An Public Gold - Bunga Raya is 999.9% gold)
But buyers beware – forgery is much easier with gold bars so be sure you buy from reputable dealers and get an assay certificate attesting to the bar’s weight and purity.
