Gold bullion comes in all shapes and sizes. Considering the popularity of investing in gold today, a number of mints and refiners around the world have developed gold bullion products in very light weights that are affordable for folks who can’t necessarily afford to buy gold bars by the ounce.
We’ve just received a shipment of 1 gram gold bars from a variety of Good Delivery-certified refiners and we’re pleased to list them for sale at a price that won’t break your budget. Every one of these 1 gram gold bars arrives in original assay packaging, straight from the refiner. The gold bar and assay card are sealed together in tamper-evident packages, so you can validate the authenticity of your gold without opening it up. (This is very handy should you ever need to sell your gold!)
Per the Good Delivery guidelines, the front of each 1 gram gold bar includes its weight, metal content, and purity, along with the name and/or logo of the refiner. You’ll note a unique serial number on each bar as well.
The enclosed assay card confirms the refiner, metal content, purity, weight and the bar’s serial number. This vital document testifies that the refiner has analyzed and tested the quality and purity of the enclosed gold, and vouches for both. You can think of it as a certificate of authenticity direct from the refiner. The assay card provides an avenue for quick and easy verification of the contents without invasive chemical testing – a huge advantage should you ever need to sell your gold bar.
These 1 gram gold bullion bars are tiny, but don’t be fooled – they’re also useful. Here’s an affordable way to diversify the weights of your gold bars. If you’re concerned about having “small change” in gold for bartering purposes, look no farther! They also make fantastic, and affordable, gifts for family and friends. In fact, we usually sell right out of these gold bars during the holiday season.
Note: Your gold bar will be selected from our available stock at the time of your order. We can’t guarantee a specific mint or refiner, only that they’re on the industry's Good Delivery list. Recently, we’ve stocked and shipped 1 gram gold bars from Argor Heraeus, Istanbul Gold Refinery, PAMP Suisse, Perth Mint and Umicore.
The 1 gram gold bar represents one of the most portable and easily-stored gold bars produced. It’s a popular choice for investors and buyers, and an excellent starting point for bullion investing. Although there are smaller gold bars available, this is the smallest size we consider to be a serious precious metals investment rather than a novelty.
1 gram gold bars are produced by minting or stamping from appropriately rolled gold sheets or they are made from gold blanks that have been cut to a required dimension from a flat piece of gold. The process of creating gold bars has come a long way since the early methods of casting molten gold into pre-shaped molds, but the main principles endure.
1 gram gold bars tend to have a higher premium over spot than larger gold bars, reflecting their proportionately higher cost of production and packaging. On the other hand, premiums still tend to be lower than those for gold coins.
Gold has played a significant role in maintaining economies throughout history, thanks to its high value and monetary use. It proved significantly important for the United States following the national debt accumulated during the American Revolutionary War.
The first U.S. gold coin was struck by Ephraim Brasher in 1787. 5 years later in 1792, The Coinage Act was passed and it placed the United States on a bimetallic silver-gold standard. The problem was that the U.S. didn’t have its own gold sources.
However, in 1799 a 17-pound gold nugget was found in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, which was the first documented discovery of gold in the US. Then just 4 years after, more gold was discovered at Little Meadow Creek, North Carolina which sparked the first U.S. gold rush. It led to populating a once scarcely populated backcountry. Subsequent gold vein discoveries attracted even more people to North Carolina and surrounding states. The gold craze that followed attracted more and more immigrants searching for gold, which further led to significant growth of the U.S. population and economy. Flakes of gold were found near Sacramento, California in 1848 which triggered the California Gold Rush that hastened the settlement of the American West.
During the 20th century, the increase in gold regulations and trades, but also the series of financial panics led to the creation of the Federal Reserve System in 1913. With the increase in the United States bullion, The United States Bullion Depository, also known as Fort Knox was built by the Treasury in 1936. Today it houses over half of the Treasury’s stored gold. It’s well known for its top-level physical security.
During a large part of the 20th century, gold was prohibited from being owned by private citizens, starting from 1933 on President Franklin D. Roosevelt as a means to alleviate the banking panic. It lasted up until 1974 with various changes in regulations in between.
Gold has played a large role in American history, and it’s a great privilege to be able to obtain it in various forms available today, especially in the purest of forms, the gold bar. And the 1-gram Gold bar is one of the best starting points for first time investors looking to expand their portfolio.
