Where to Buy Gold Bars

Gold is a global currency which, in its physical form, is carried by most central banks. Governments worldwide have a confidence in gold which is shared by financial advisors and individual investors, who trust its history of stability and intrinsic value.

Whilst there’s very little doubt that an investment in gold is a safe option for your future, the question of where to buy gold bars is an important one to consider.

Where can I buy gold bars?

Buying gold bullion on the internet from a well-known distributor with a great track record is the easiest way to guarantee that you’re getting the best – both in terms of quality and service.

The biggest benefit of buying online is that you can access a huge number of independent customer reviews. All trustworthy online distributors will display them and it’s vital that you check them out before deciding where to buy gold bars.

Where can I buy a gold bar that is top-quality?

To make certain that you’re obtaining the best gold bars that are 99.99 per cent fine gold, you should seek out gold bars from a known refiner. Recognised suppliers include:

Gold bars from these world-renowned refiners will carry a hallmark and a registration number that act as a guarantee of quality and weight. Buying gold bars from unrecognised suppliers that don’t carry hallmarks or certificates of authenticity is likely to cause you considerable problems when it comes to selling your gold in the future.

Buying cheap gold bars

Gold bars are offered in a variety of weights and you can expect to pay anything from around £40 for a 1g bar to upwards of £30,000 for a 1kg bar. Beware of sellers offering prices lower than this, as these prices are based on live market updates set by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) twice per day. Any suspiciously cheap prices might suggest that there is a compromise on quality – remember that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

It is also important to remember that all gold bought and sold in the UK is VAT free – the only added fees you should pay for gold bullion are fashion fees (premiums added to cover the costs of production and packaging).

For first-time investors, small gold bars offer the flexibility of easy access and can be bought in instalments as a way of testing out different suppliers and building up your overall investment over time. The main drawback to buying small bars is increased fashion fees. Consequently, it would benefit you financially if you were to buy one 100g bar rather than ten 10g bars, for instance.
