Purchase physical gold bars is one of the most cost-effective investments you can make, provided that they come from an LBMA-approved producer.
Gold bars are an increasingly popular alternative to bullion coins for investment purposes. Less costly than their counterparts yet still providing security against inflation, they’re easier to liquidate and come in various sizes – provided you purchase it from a reputable precious metals dealer.
As proof of ownership, a bar’s weight, purity and serial number can all help establish authenticity – though some gold bullion bars don’t feature such documentation.
When looking for a trustworthy precious metals dealer, always choose an LBMA-approved one to ensure you receive high-quality product at a great price. Furthermore, avoid buying gold from dealers with exorbitant shipping and handling fees as this could compromise its integrity.
Proof of ownership

A certificate should include details like the artist, date and title of their work as well as production method details as well as material details used during creation. Lastly, its history of sales must also be listed to demonstrate provenance.
