SHOP GOLD BARS FOR SALE
You can buy gold bars from many places, but there's only one place where you can buy gold bars from America's Gold Authority®—that's at U.S. Money Reserve!
When you want a cost-effective and convenient way to hold large volumes of precious metals, consider buying gold bullion bars. The principles behind holding gold bars are very similar to those of gold bullion coins. The market value of each corresponds to the amount of gold and to gold's current market price.
Buying gold bullion bars can also diversify your savings and protect your hard-earned money. Choose a hard asset that has stood the test of time.
Why Buy Gold Bars?
There are many benefits to buying gold bars. We'll detail a few below.
Gold Bars Are Easy to Store
You can generally store gold bars how and where you want to. Gold bars are compact, durable, and portable. They can be stacked vertically or arranged side by side, with or without protective packaging. A gold bar can also take up less space than the same weight in coins, depending on the type of coin and your storage method.
Gold bars are rectangular slabs of .999 pure gold and are produced in sizes ranging from 1 oz. to 1 kilo. According to the U.S. Mint, a standard gold bar measures 245 x 84.5 mm—but that's for 400 oz. gold bars held in central banks' gold reserves. The average gold buyer is more likely to purchase a 1 oz. gold bar measuring approximately 41.60 x 24.60 mm or a 10 oz. bar that's roughly 47 x 24 mm (Perth Mint gold bar sizes).
Gold Bars Have a Lower Than Average Premium
Premiums on gold bars tend to be lower than on gold coins of the same weight and fineness. This is due primarily to production costs. Factors that go into the price of gold coins can include an emphasis on appearance, condition, and intricate design, all of which lead to higher machining and labor costs than gold bars.
The price of a gold bar, on the other hand, is primarily based on its weight in gold. Appearance and condition aren’t extremely important. With some gold coins, like certified coins, the rarity and grade of the coin are also considered in the final price, so gold content isn’t the only factor influencing how much the coin will cost you in the end.
Gold Bars Are Easy to Buy and Sell
Gold bars are pure gold. For the most part, there are no intricate designs or unique finishes that must be preserved to near perfection, and a gold bar does not typically have historical significance limited to one culture or country. Given this universality, gold bars can be easy to buy and sell: they’re accessible and appealing to many buyers—commercial, private, domestic, or international.
Gold Bars Offer Easy Diversification
Most importantly, however, gold bars are great for high-volume gold diversification. That's what they're made for! Due to their size and simplicity, gold bars are one of the fastest ways to build your precious metals portfolio. Buying gold bars can be your fastest route to large-scale gold ownership when time is of the essence.
Gold Bars Are IRA-Approved
Gold bars can be ideal for efficient, high-volume precious metals diversification but also for helping you reach retirement with your hard-earned savings intact. How? Select gold bars—like the 1 oz. and 10 oz. Perth Mint Gold Bars—can be incorporated into your Self-Directed IRA alongside stocks, bonds, real estate, and other assets. Gold bars can be one of the most cost-effective ways to protect your retirement savings when it comes to precious metals.
Call U.S. Money Reserve to learn how you can incorporate IRA-approved gold bars into an existing Self-Directed Precious Metals IRA or how to set one up through U.S. Money Reserve's Gold Standard IRA program. Build your retirement dreams on a foundation of gold bars to help keep you on track.
