Investment gold is a particular sort of gold used as an investment instrument, much like securities, mutual funds, etc. It mainly takes the form of gold coins and bars (ingots), not bought for collecting reasons, but as an investment (i.e. a place to park paper money).
The most important characteristic is its fineness, which must be at least 995 units of gold per 1 000 units of metal (fineness of 995) in the case of investment bars or 900/1000 in the case of investment coins. The conditions under which investment metals are defined may be regulated differently from one country to another. We only offer bars and coins from world-famous refineries and mints that have been accredited by the LBMA. These bars and coins are of the highest purity (999.9) and boast precise artistry.
There are many ways to purchase precious metals, but not all are sound. A low price may be tempting, but it can be very expensive in the end.
Investment bars and coins should only be purchased from verified and reliable partners with a track record and market credentials. It is crucial to avoid purchasing from unknown persons, dubious sources or purely internet companies – which often only deal through their online shops or auctions and, once you make your purchase, you find that the “seller” or the company itself has vanished.
Do not buy investment precious metals of unknown origin. A reputable dealer will guarantee that you are the first owner of the bar and will not sell on bars that have been bought back. Trustworthy dealers source their bars from an official exclusive supplier or refinery. You won’t go wrong by choosing from among the world’s most sought-after and LBMA-certified manufacturers. A manufacturer’s popularity guarantees quality and, in particular, prompt buyback. The seller must also guarantee a selected manufacturer’s supply of bars and coins.
It should be a matter of course to also have a buyback guarantee from the seller. It’s best to avoid dealers who do not publish or adhere to current buyback prices. Likewise, all the information you need to make an informed investment decision should be available to you. This includes pre-contractual information, a draft contract and their fee and service price list. Pay particular attention to the penalties and fines charged for breach of contract. Considering that investment in precious metals is meant to provide freedom and independence, you should not feel constrained by the dealer’s terms and conditions.
Because investments in precious metals are of a long-term nature, it is vital to choose a proven and safe partner.
