Gold bars are classified as either cast or minted dependant on their method of manufacture. Cast bars are produced  directly from gold that has been melted and minted bars are normally cut from a  cast bar that has been rolled to a uniform thickness.

Gold bars  are a safe haven for asset protection as well as a good future investment. Basically the value of gold does not change with regard to the goods and  services you can get with its value. And ounce of gold still purchases the same  value of goods and services as it did many years ago. But the amount of fiat currency which the gold value is assessed by does change and, as the economy goes through recessions and inflation, the apparency is that gold is worth more  when actually it is the currency which is worth less.

A good reason to buy gold bars and not sell them. But if you do have to sell some gold, bars are good as they are accepted anywhere in the world.

You can buy gold bars from gold dealers, mints, foundries even, as well as from private  individuals, auctions and the like. The same basic principles for buying gold apply regardless where you buy the gold bars.

Here are some basic principles you can use to ensure you get the best deal and the best gold for your buck.

  • Buy the biggest gold bar or bars you can afford. The bigger the bar the smaller the premium you will pay per ounce. This will reduce the gold bar price per ounce.
  • Pick established or accredited gold dealers and mints.
  • If you are going to take delivery, ensure you understand the cost of shipping and importantly insurance. Check with the gold bar dealer to find out the shipping costs and ensure that they provide insurance (which you will be expected to pay) this should be figured in the gold bar price.
  • Do due diligence on the gold bar dealer or person or company you are buying gold from. Who are they? Are they easily contacted? Are they accredited? Do you know friends or associates that have dealt with them before?
  • Lastly it is prudent to have a good understanding of gold and gold bars. How they are produced and in what form. The weights, fineness and all other aspects of gold bars. How much premium will you pay?

Taking some time to understand your gold bar investment will pay off in that you can ensure you get as much gold for your money as possible and that you do not pay a heavy gold bar price while doing it!
