Buy Gram Gold Bars Online
Buying physical gold bullion is one of the most popular options among investors looking to diversify their portfolio with a real tangible asset that won’t corrode and is guaranteed to store its value for generations to come.
Additionally, a gold bar is usually preferred over a gold bullion coin for those looking to acquire the most gold content for their dollar and are not worried about numismatic value.
A gram gold bullion bar, by its turn, is becoming each day more and more popular among new investors because of its low cost of entry.
At SD Bullion, you can buy gold gram bars from a diverse selection of globally renowned private and government mints. All our stock is provided by reliable sources and most of our gram gold bars for sale are refined to the .9999 purity (24 k gold).
- Gold bullion can be an excellent choice for those looking for a real asset to protect their wealth against inflation;
- Gold bars have a lower premium when compared to gold coins for they are not as much valued for design and numismatic appeal, therefore representing a better investment for those looking to acquire the most gold content for their money;
- Smaller gram gold bars could constitute a good entry-point for up-and-coming investors or veterans looking for a quick convenient way to expand their gold collection.
Why Buy Gram Gold Bars
Buying gold bars is typically the lowest priced option when investing in gold bullion due to the fact that their rates are defined mostly based on their gold content alone. And based on the fact that dealer premium is calculated by adding a percentage over the spot price, gram Gold Bars, in turn, can be purchased with the lowest premium in terms of gross value, granted their low initial cost (for smaller bars).
On the other hand, larger bars, such as the 100-gram gold bars, have lower premium percentages. That way you can get a better dollar value for your investment.
Nevertheless, both heavier and lighter bars are a very liquid default-free investment that also poses very few counterparty risks.
Furthermore, most of the gram bars we offer are IRA approved (check approval on each product’s page) and, as such, constitute a great way to fund gold IRAs.
Popular Mints, Weights, and Designs
Another factor that can slightly influence the price of a gold bar is the mint that produced it. Government mints are usually seen as high-standard refiners. Also, bars from worldwide regarded private mints, such as PAMP Suisse, tend to sell for a little higher than bars from less known producers. However, they also tend to fetch a better offer when you decide to resell.
The most popular weights among gram gold bars are:
- 1 gram
- 2.5 grams
- 5 grams
- 20 grams
- 50 grams
- 100 grams
As mentioned before, the percentage over the spot you will pay for larger bars is typically lower than for smaller gold bars, such as the 1 gram gold bar.
The most sought after designs among our customers are as follows:
- PAMP Suisse Lady Fortuna Gold Bars - Available in a variety of sizes, this magnificent design from this Swiss-based manufacturer portrays the Roman goddess Fortuna, daughter of Jupiter. She was one of the first personalities to be depicted in a gold bar. In this rendition, Lady Fortuna is blindfolded to represent the uncertainty of the future. She is holding out her hands to collect the riches that fall from the cornucopia adorning her hair. This gold bar is refined to contain .9999 pure gold content.
- PAMP Suisse Faith Series - PAMP has also created a phenomenal series of gold bars to celebrate the different faiths and spiritual beliefs from around the world. Each minted bar from the series is engraved with a unique design that represents a different religion, such as the Cross Gold Bar depicting an ornate Christian cross on the obverse. These bars also contain .9999 fine gold.
Gram Bars vs Ounce Bars
Troy ounces are usually the most common measure when it comes to weighing gold and precious metals in general. It dates back to the Middle Ages and was originally created in Troyes, France (hence the name). It differs a little from the regular ounce as it is equivalent to 31.1 grams.
However, grams and kilograms have steadily become a popular way to determine gold content as they are more internationally known units of measure.
Besides, grams offer a wider variety of sizes to purchase from that would fit in different investment budgets without having to buy multiple or a fraction (fractional gold bars) of the same ounce gold bar.
Price of a Gram (How it's Calculated)
Every gold bullion is priced according to a fluctuating standard market value called the gold spot price.
The spot price of gold is determined by general laws of supply and demand and daily transactions on the commodities markets, such as NYMEX and COMEX, and it is calculated by the gram, kilogram, and troy ounce.
The spot price per troy ounce is 31.1 times higher than the price for a gram of gold and the price per kilo is a thousand times higher, precisely the same proportional difference as the weight.
Nonetheless, as previously mentioned, bullion dealers will add a small percentage (usually 1,5 to 8%) over the spot price. That margin is called a premium and ensures the retailer can cover business costs (stock insurance and storage, for instance) and also turn a profit.
In other words, the price of a bullion product, such as the gram gold bars, or even gold coins for that matter, will be the spot price of gold plus the dealer’s premium.
How many grams in an ounce of gold?
It is important to note that 1 troy ounce, used for precious metals measurements, is a little larger than the regular ounce (also called avoirdupois ounce). 1 troy ounce equals 1.09714286 ounces, and exactly 31.1034768 grams, which is usually rounded down to 31.1.
Generally speaking, when the term ounce is used to refer to the amount of a certain precious metal, such as gold or silver, in a bar or coin, it is an abbreviation for troy ounces. For example, 1 oz gold bar actually refers to 1 troy ounce gold bar.
