WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF GOLD?

Gold (for investment) comes in two forms: coins and bars. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. We’ll discuss a few of these in the information below.

WHICH IS BETTER, BARS OR COINS?

Coins are the most common investment gold. In Houston, you’ll most often see gold coins like the American Gold Eagle, The Krugerrand, The Canadian Maple Leaf and the Mexican Peso. These forms of investment gold, also called bullion (bull-yun) are easy to acquire, simple to verify the authenticity of and are less susceptible to counterfeiting than bars.

Gold bars have the advantage of a slightly lower premium, so your initial costs are lower when purchasing. Unfortunately, bars by various manufacturers are not of uniform size and shape and so are easier to counterfeit.

WHAT ARE THE VARIOUS TYPES OF BARS?

Bars come in a variety of shapes, sizes and weights. A variety of manufacturers mint bars for sale. It is advisable to enlist the help of a professional before attempting to invest in gold bars due to the higher risk of counterfeit products on the market today. Although bars can be obtained for a lower premium, there’ is substantially higher risk when bars are not obtained as part of a “good custody chain” which verifies their authenticity.
