Gold investors seeks to have a real physical touch of owning gold with a strong sense of security may go ahead to buy physical gold bars instead of those intangible gold investment for example, gold exchange traded funds (ETFs), paper gold or vault storage allocated gold which you do not have physical ownership of it.

For vault storage allocated gold, you must also beware that some companies might probably provide you with free storage for just a period of time, after the free trial ended, they will charge you a storage fee which can add up to quite a significant amount if you are looking to invest in gold for the long term. This is the reason why buying physical gold bars and have ownership in your own hands make more sense.

Physical gold or we call it investment-grade gold can be in a form of gold bullion bars, which you can purchase at close to spot price. The gold bullion bars weights varies from 1g, 2.5g, 5g, 10g, 20g, ½ Oz, 1 Oz, 50g, 100g, 500g, 1 Kg etc. Physical gold can be easily liquidated when there is an event of economic crisis it is a good hedge against recession.

Important notes

1. Most gold investors accumulate their wealth with physical gold ownership by acquiring investment grade gold bullion bars.

2. Choose honest and reputable dealer and ensure the bars or coins they supply to you are (GST exempted) investment graded bullion bars or IPM coins which can be easily liquidate internationally. Check the bar purity and size before you buy from them.

3. You must expect buying physical gold bars with reasonable premium above spot price as there is cost to it.

The size of gold bars investors can choose to invest is in a range of 1 Oz bar to 100 gram so that it make it more worth while for you to wait for your investment value to increase more in the long term. The gold bar is the size of a name card, with plastic packaging also act as a certificate. It is important for us to know that, we shouldn’t temper with the certificate, always keep the certificate intact and do not force open and try to touch the gold bar itself. It is because once the certificate was tampered with, the value of the gold will drop as many gold dealers will find it hard to find buyers and they will not buy from you at market value once the certificate was being tampered with.

Invest in physical pure gold bars only. Investment graded gold bullion bars should be at least 99.5% purity. I would suggest 99.9% purity to be exact. Gold investors who buy gold bullion as an investment should buy the gold bars which clearly stamped the weight, the purity of 999.9 % and the name of the manufacturer for example brands like Pamp Suisse, Valcambi, Perth Mint, Credit Suisse, Argor Heraeus, Royal Canadian Mint etc, which are listed under LBMA Good Delivery List.

What is the difference between physical gold bars and gold coins?

Any form of physical pure gold have significant investment value, but there is some difference to the investment graded gold compared to gold coins. Investment graded gold bullion bars were known to gold investors as lower premium compared to gold coins, where gold coins feature nice design strike, with rare limited value or rather numismatic value which add on to the premium.

But if you spotted low premium gold coins from our online store, you can consider to add them into your investment portfolio as well. The key to your gold investment is good value. We carry investment graded LBMA listed gold bullion bars or IPM qualifying gold coins which are GST free and internationally recognized. Thus, in future when your physical gold you hold appreciate, you can easily liquidate them.

Buy physical gold in the size that can be easily liquiduated

As a season gold investor, we should consider the ease of liquidation in the future. If you have 1 kg gold worth of capital, it is advisable to go for 100g gold bars x 10 pcs instead of a 1kg gold bar. It is easy for you to liquidate or buy back at any time when there is market opportunity. It is much easier for you to find buyer who will buy 100g gold bars than 1 kg gold bars when gold price rally at high price if you quickly want to find buyer to sell in the market.

Gold investors can monitor the spot price of gold in SGD or USD from www.buygold.sg website.
