Most people are investing in gold bullion today. Gold bullion prices are seeing a steep rise as investors are flocking to the commodities market of precious metals. This has been attributed to the current scenario of stock market crash and rising inflation. Double recession has hit the economy immensely, and investing in gold bullion is believed to be a hedge against inflation.

In general, small gold bullion bars are made from pure gold. The gold used is generally 99.5 % fine. According to estimates, there are nearly 50 accredited manufacturers of gold bullion bars all over the world. Gold bullion bars are available in different sizes and weights. Some gold bullion may weigh just one gram. On the other hand, large gold bullion bars can weigh up to 400 troy ounces. Small bars usually weigh less than 1 kg.

Gold is a precious metal and it is usually measured in troy ounces. In general, most people prefer buying gold bullion bars of smaller size as they are easier to handle and cheaper. Gold bullion bars are available at premium which is little above the spot price of gold. Higher the weight of gold bullion bars, smaller will be the associated premium. Thus, although smaller gold bullion bars are cheaper, the premium price of these bars is comparatively much higher.

Gold bullion investment is quite recommended as it is the safest form of investment. In times of recession and political chaos, all other capital assets lose their value, excluding gold bullion. Gold is the only physical asset whose value increases in times of inflation, recession, and currency devaluation.

Buying gold bullion bars implies that you possess real physical assets of gold. These are considered as assets with high liquidity. Most gold investors will agree with the fact that people need to have a diversified investment portfolio. Among the different available options, gold bullion investment is the safest option.

Although you may have an investment portfolio of stocks, shares, and mutual funds, investing in gold bullion will surely help you in diversifying your portfolio. Investment in gold bullion serves as a hedge in times of market volatility. So, we recommend that your investment portfolio should constitute up to 10 % of gold investment. Note that, you can invest in gold bullion throughout the day as the international gold trading is operational throughout the day. In general, most people store large gold bullion bars in the vaults of banks for security reasons.
