Investment gold bars
Gold bars are the usual stock and investment form for fine gold. There are gold bars of different sizes and different bars. Usually there are fine gold bars in the weight units 1g, 5g, 10g, 20g, 1 ounce (31.1g), 50g, 100g, 250g, 500g and 1000g. The smaller the ingot, the higher the price per g of gold weight, since the production of large and small ingots is almost the same work or cost. For pure financial investors it is therefore advisable to buy as large individual gold bars as possible. For those who wish to purchase gold as crises or emergency reserve or as flexible as possible during a later sale, it is advisable to purchase smaller coins or gold plates.
1000g gold bars / 1kg fine bar / 1kg Plant Gold Bar
1kg gold bars are produced and offered by almost all gold refineries. The ingots are generally not formed from blanks, but are poured from pre-weighed fine granules weighing exactly 1000 g. After the casting is then the fine weight, the purity (999,9), the logo of the manufacturer and possibly a serial number are punched. However, some manufacturers also offer embossed designs for the large 1kg bars, but these are significantly more scratch-sensitive than cast ingots. The price increase of kilo bars is very close to the pure gold value, since the cost of embossing is hardly significant because of the relatively high material value.
1000g bars are ideal for buyers who want to invest a five-digit amount in gold and consider this either as pure financial investment, pension provision or inflation hedging. Many investors, especially those who consider gold as part of their retirement plans, also split their purchases into different bullion sizes to sell only as much gold as they need in money at a later sale. At MILLHOUSE CAPITAL, you can buy and sell gold bars at any time at the current price starting at 500g and can store them in our facilities one year for free.
Standard gold bar 400oz
In addition to gold bars for private investors, there are still so-called standard trading bars with a weight of 400oz (approx. 12.44kg), which are usually only manufactured for industrial processors, central banks or large investors (funds). In principle, the larger the individual ingot, the lower the embossing fee per gram of the contained gold.
Standard bars - it does not get any bigger
Gold standard bars are in the banking business weight units of 400 ounces, barely 12.4 kilos. These standard bars are not customary in retail banking, even in the case of a very large total business volume. These are usually used for submission to the LBMA (London Bullion Metal Association) or for gold trading between banks / central banks.
Normal bar of the precious metal trade for medium to large assets is the gold kilo bars. This weight unit is available in various dimensions and also with a wide range of different brands. It is not always the first and largest company on the gold bar that produced it. As a rule, production is limited to only a few precious metal processors worldwide, which are licensed under license. Gold bars for dealers and banks in their name. This is the case where Deutsche Bank gold bars or Commerzbank, Credit Swiss or UBS gold bars are often found.
The normal trading bar with respect to most of the business is found in the weight range of the 50 and 100 grams of gold bars. Here, the extra money is still justifiably low - at the same time the unit handy and a resale of also smaller partial quantities easily possible. 50 grams of gold bars as well as 100 grams of gold bars are therefore among the best sellers in the precious metal trade.

Since 2011, however, there has been a revival of Degussa bars since a Swiss billionaire has acquired the name rights and since then has been able to produce bars with the well-known logo at various embossing shops for marketing reasons for his numerous gold and sales shops, which operate under the name of Degussa Goldhandel.

As with print-fresh or older banknotes, it also does not matter with the value of gold bars whether they are embossed or already traded.
In principle, it is irrelevant for the value of a gold bar, in which embossing institution it was cast or embossed. Gold is gold. Some gold smelters have registered at London's LBMA, the London Gold Exchange, but since only industrial standard gold bars with a weight of 12.44 kg (400 ounces) are physically traded, this is rather irrelevant for private investors. In the case of a resale, the bank or the precious metal trader or the Scheideanstalt, which is supplied with the gold ingots, will check the bars for weight and fines anyway, and the equivalent value will not be paid until afterwards.
