Gold bullion bars come in a variety of sizes, perfect for any collector's budget and needs. One of our most popular sizes for gold bars is the 5 gram gold bar. This is half the size of a 10 gram gold bar, both of which are smaller than a 1 oz bar. The price of gold is typically based on one troy ounce of gold, but with smaller bars available it is possible to purchase gold in lower amounts.
A 5 gram gold bar is very affordable for almost any investor, which makes it particularly suitable for first-time buyers or someone looking to get more gold out of a little leftover budget not quite enough for a full ounce. Gold stackers will often throw in 10, 5 or even 1 gram bars into their order just to maximize their gold take for their allotted budget.
These 5 gram bars, along with 10 and 1 gram bars, are a must for anyone who uses gold for barter. The smaller denominations make it easier to arrive at precise measurements, just as one might use various denominations of fiat currency to provide "exact change" during a transaction.
All of our 5 gram gold bars come contain 5 grams of .9999 fine gold from trusted mints. The bars come inside tamper-evident packaging, ensuring the contents are genuine, unaltered and top quality.
First-time buyers should note that gold is a particularly dense element, which means its size can be deceiving. When purchasing a 5 gram gold bar, you may be surprised to see just how small 5 grams of gold is, but rest assured that the full 5 grams of value is there in the metal. You'll notice the significance of the weight in your hand despite the small size. The density is a unique property of gold that makes it such an incredible, and valuable, metal.
