Gold is the most prestigious way of investing in precious metals due to its long history of being an excellent means for trading operations, its scarcity, and inherent value. Just like silver, gold is one of the very few precious metals to stand the test of time as a proven, and trustworthy savings investment strategy. It was considered for many years a symbol of wealth and luxury, and its bullion options, such as bars and coins, were preferred for hundreds of years by many powerful civilizations and nations. For this reason, we buy gold to protect against inflation and to own state-of-the-art pieces of the world’s most notorious producers.
Gold Bars and coins are manufactured by several renowned precious metals mints and refineries all over the world. While Gold Bars are typically preferred by investors to increase their portfolio with highly valuable gold bullion, Gold Coins are the preferred collectible of numismatists and coin enthusiasts. Due to their historical value and, in some cases, scarcity, gold coins usually carry a higher premium over the gold spot price than gold bars. However, they can be an exclusive and extremely rare addition to your collection, very desired by passionate collectors, thus providing higher value over their gold content. In most cases, such as the most popular gold coins American Gold Eagles, Canadian Gold Maple Leafs and Gold Chinese Pandas, coin prices carry lower premiums over the gold spot price.
Investing in gold bars is considered to be one of the safest and most cost effective ways to buy gold bullion because bars can be easily stored and traded and they offer the purest gold content. The purity of gold bars is usually the same or sometimes higher than of the finest gold coins available on the gold market. Thus, gold bars cost a little higher than the gold spot price. They are usually struck by private mints, like PAMP Suisse, Credit Suisse, Argor-Heraeus, Valcambi and many other manufacturers.
