What is the best value 1 Kilo gold bar?

This is designed for those seeking the cheapest 1kg gold bullion available and is not focused on a particular brand. You’ll receive 1 kilo 24 carat (999.9 purity) gold bullion bars from stock, which will be manufactured by one of the world’s best-known refiners. Brands will include Heraeus, Umicore, UBS, Perth Mint, Credit Suisse, Pamp, Bairds, and Metalor gold bars, amongst others. Bars may be in cellophane bag rather than in laminated packaging.

Why are best value 1kg gold bars a good option?

Gold bullion prices consist purely of the intrinsic gold content value plus a manufacturing cost. Unlike rare collector’s coins, limited edition gold coin sets, or proof finish gold, you don’t pay a premium for rarity or history. Therefore, buying gold bars can provide excellent value for those focused on gold investing. Because the best value bars are from excess stock, you pay a lower price than if you were to select your brand.

Our expert opinion

Buying one KG gold bars provides the lowest price per gram option for gold bullion. Due to its size, manufacturing cost as a percentage of the overall price is far lower than with smaller bars. For those seeking the best possible value, 1kg bars are far more cost-effective than their more modest-sized versions. Electing for the ‘best value’ bars provides an additional discount. Physical Gold Limited generally will pay the same when you come to sell one of these gold bars versus selling a gold bar whose brand you originally chose. After all, it’s still the same quantity of gold in the same format.

How big is the bar

A bar of this size can also bring the unique satisfaction that holding physical gold can afford. Most people imagine brick-like gold bars like the gold in the movies, so when they end up purchasing some gold coins or 20g gold bars, many are left underwhelmed with the amount their money can buy. While the 1kg bar does resemble the brick size bars in films, it is more modest in proportions, while maintaining the same desired effect. Generally, bars featured in films and on TV, and those bought and sold by Central Banks are in fact 12.5kg bars (or 400oz)! For those able to afford the 1000g gold bar, instant comfort and pleasure can be derived from simply handling the bar. Unlike the smaller 5g to 100g bars, the 1kg bar is a cast gold bar. This means the gold is produced by pouring molten gold into a set 1kg cast rather than cutting the bars from a sheet of gold. It’s only important for aesthetics that you understand the difference before you buy. There’s no difference in the value of a cast or minted gold bar, but the cast bars have more rounded edges and look more rugged.
