The Gold Bar – 1 oz
Investment Grade Gold Bullion

The Gold Bar – 1 oz

The gold bar – 1 oz is an investment grade gold bullion bar that weighs exactly 1 troy ounce, or 31.1034768 grams. Its fineness, or gold content, is at least 99.9%. This gold bullion bar is one of our biggest sellers and very suitable for storage or delivery.

One ounce gold bars are usually rectangular. They are produced either as cast or minted bars. Because the bars are manufactured by a variety of refineries and government mints, their look and feel can vary.

Marketsforu only sells gold bars of recognized and widely-traded brands. These would include the 1oz gold bars from such highly regarded refineries as Johnson Matthey, Credit Suisse, Pamp Suisse,Heraeus, and government mints such as the Royal Canadian Mintand the Perth Mint.

Gold bars can make nice gifts but can also be added to investment portfolios since they are conveniently sized, affordably priced, and are well-known in the international marketplace.

Composition

 

Each 1oz bar has a minimum purity of 0.995 and is normally 0.999 pure or even 0.9999 pure. These bars contain exactly 1 troy ounce of gold.

For example, the Perth Mint produces a 1oz minted gold bar called known as the Kangaroo bar which is popular with investors. The Kangaroo is a 1 ounce minted gold bar with a fine gold content of 1 troy ounce, a fineness of 99.99%, and a minimum gross weight of 31.107 grams. The Perth Mint’s 1 ounce bar is rectangular in shape with tapered corners, and measures 41.60mm by 24.60 mm with a 1.71mm depth.

 

Storage

 

A critical decision for  investors when buying investment gold bars is where you want to store your investment. The compact size, durability and portability of the 1 oz gold bar allows for easy storage options. However, 1 oz gold bars are valuable and need to be securely stored, and with the rising risk of burglaries you should not store too many valuables at home.

There are two main options available, either:

  • Take delivery of your coins at your address ensuring that you have adequate facilities and insurance in place or;
  • Store you investment gold coins with a secure third party.

Marketsforu offer clients fully insured secure storage facilities in many international locations such as Switzerland, UK, USA, Australia and Asia.

For first time buyers of gold and silver bullion or those looking to select a new storage partner, there are a number of key benefits that differentiate Marketsforu Secure Storage:

 

 

– Safest Locations Globally

– Highly Competitive Storage

– Direct Ownership

– Full Audits

– Transparency and Accessibility

 

Over the past 10 years Marketsforu has assisted clientswith the purchase and storage of allocated gold, silver, platinum and palladium bullion. In that time we have built a global network of storage, logistics and insurance partners that work with us in safeguarding the gold and silver bullion stored on behalf of our clients.

We have chosen to develop a global secure storage solution since international storage should be seen as part of a prudent geopolitical diversification strategy. While Marketsforu offers delivery of precious metals in various countries, most of Marketsforu’s vaulting facilities are located internationally, which could help mitigate any potential future risk that clients’ bullion could be impacted by confiscation risks.

Our partner vaulting facilities are located in some of the safest locations globally including Switzerland, Hong Kong and Singapore. The economies of these countries are strong, they are politically stable and independent, and they have built up global reputations for discretion, confidentiality and financial property rights.

Safest Locations Globally

 

The second most important decision an Irish buyer faces is how to store their gold. The first is the actual decision to purchase gold. Ideally, investors should diversify across storage locations to minimise event risks such as theft, government confiscation, terrorism, war and natural disasters that might affect one location.

 

Secure Storage

 

This may mean keeping a small quantity of gold at home or in a readily accessible location, while storing the majority of your bullion holding in a secure international precious metals storage facility or vault, preferably in a financially stable and politically stable jurisdiction. Marketsforu has partnered with Loomis and Brink’s, world leaders in precious and valuable storage solutions, to provide fully insured storage services to ourclients across a number of international jurisdictions in Switzerland, Singapore, the UK, the U.S. and Hong Kong.

 

Competitive Storage Rates

 

Marketsforu Secure Storage annual storage fees start at 1% per annum and storage fees of less than 1% are available for larger values of bullion stored.
1.00%         <$100,000
0.79%         $100,000 – $250,000
0.69%         $250,000 – $500,000
0.59%         $500,000 – $750,000
0.49%         $750,000+

Storage charges are calculated and accrued daily based on a daily valuation of the client’s gold holding, and then billed six months in arrears at the end of each April and October.
A daily billing calculation means that the storage fee is accurately applied to the changing value of the gold, and reflects the changing gold price over the billing period. This calculation approach prevents large movements in the gold price affecting the bi-annual storage fee, which could occur if the fee was calculated based on just one day’s price.

When a client buys physical gold from Marketsforu, the initial purchase price does not include a storage fee. Therefore the client defers payment on storage until the first invoice date, which could be up to six months later. For example, if a client buys gold in the first week of May, they only get billed for their first storage fee nearly six months later at the end of October, and so (the client) avoids an upfront storage fee at the time of purchase.

Direct Ownership

Direct ownership of gold means owning actual individual gold bullion coins and/or bars either in your possession or in allocated, segregated and fully insured accounts that you can access easily and quickly take delivery of your gold bullion from.

There is no counterparty risk with direct ownership since the gold bullion is the legal property of you the investor, and should the provider go out of business this does not impact your ownership of, or your access to the gold bullion.

By having direct ownership of physical coins and bars you can sell your bullion back to any number of international bullion dealers. This reduces your dependence on one single provider and also means that you are not dependent on an online digital bullion platform where the gold has to be sold back within that platform.

 

Full Audits

 

All client precious metal (gold, silver, platinum and palladium) stored by Marketsforu at storage facilities in Zurich, Hong Kong, Singapore and London, is audited via a tri-party auditing procedure. On a daily basis, Marketsforu Operations will reconcile client precious metal storage records against the vaulting facility records of the storage provider. If discrepancies are found in the records, these are fully investigated and quickly resolved.
