Best Value 250g Gold Bar

This is designed for those seeking the cheapest 250g gold bullion available and is not focused on a particular brand. You’ll receive 250g 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, amongst others.

Cast gold bar or minted

There are two ways of producing gold bars. The first is known as minted gold bars, whereby individual bars are cut from a much larger sheet of gold. This gives a very clean, fine finish and is a popular method for modest size gold bars. Most 250g gold bars will be cast gold bullion.

Cast gold bars are manufactured differently. Molten gold is poured into various sized moulds and then cooled to produce the more rugged brick-like finish. Corners tend to be more rounded, and the bars tend to appeal to traditionalists who know and desire gold bars in brick-like shape. The minted bars tend to be thinner and flatter which can be useful for storage.

The important thing to remember is that there isn’t any difference in value between the two types. Gold content and purity is the most important factor in determining value. With these bars being stamped with a serial number and accompanied by a certificate, they always fetch a high price.
