Bullion gold comes in various sizes – from 10 ounce to one kilogram bars – and investing requires careful consideration to make sure that you work with a reliable dealer who meets international purity standards.

Consider the costs associated with storing physical gold. Storing it at home may be less costly than bank safe deposit boxes, but theft or damage are greater risks. Therefore, it would be wiser to contact a trusted precious metals depository or storage facility who can manage all risks for you.

United States law places no limit on how much gold bullion you can own; however, you should be mindful of reporting requirements when making cash-based purchases of more than $10,000 worth. In such instances, an IRS Form 8300 needs to be filed with them in order to submit this transaction as legally mandated.

Even though dealers markup gold products to cover costs and generate profits, they do not always charge the same premium as its spot price; so it is wise to shop around before making a decision.

Gold bullion investments offer an effective hedge against inflation; however, like any investment, it could lose value over time; therefore, before purchasing gold you should carefully assess both your budget and storage capabilities before making this commitment.

As opposed to owning stocks, owning physical gold requires additional expenses like storage and insurance costs that must be factored into an investor’s budget before making their purchase decision.

When buying gold bullion, be sure to verify its purity. A reliable dealer should only sell investment-grade gold bars or coins with 99.5% purity; usually displayed by their weight, manufacturer, and purity inscriptions while coins may feature decorative designs on them.

Gold bullion bars can be purchased both online and at traditional coin shops. When selecting dealers, ensure they offer quality selection with high purity levels as well as convenient locations that meet these criteria.

Shop bars made by LBMA-approved gold refiners; these bars are widely recognized and maintain an exceptional resale value. Also, consider storing your gold in an account offering full insurance and security – personal accounts, joint accounts or corporate/trust accounts are available; each provides different levels of service to accommodate precious metal transactions.
