Buying bullion is a straightforward process, but it can feel a bit daunting at first. That’s why we offer a number of services to help make your journey a simple one.
Bullion is the word used to describe gold and silver in its purest form. Coins, bars and ingots containing pure precious metals are generally reserved for investment. Bullion bars and rounds represent one of the most cost-effective ways of purchasing physical precious metals.
All forms of bullion include a premium. In general, larger pieces will contain lower premiums than smaller items.
Most bullion products are embossed with their fineness and weight. This information forms part of their design, and verifies their authenticity from the mint where they were produced.
Gold and silver bullions are considered the purest asset of all the asset classes an investor can have. It adds not just diversity to your portfolio but also value and can yield great returns. Most investors buy into gold and silver as a hedge against inflation. Gold and silver continue to rise in price while national currency tends to devalue. So it makes sense to have some form of physical gold and silver rather than just money saved in a bank account. Bullion tends to move on a different track compared to equities and other commodities, which makes it a very useful hedge against losses in other investment classes and it has other attractions that make it a very worthwhile and permanent asset.
