Which gold bullion brands are the best?
If you have gold or you are looking to buy some gold as an investment it is important to do thorough research not only on the gold dealers you are thinking of engaging with but lso on the gold products themselves. Bullion brands are important, they can be the essential difference for the price one dealer will give to a customer.
Bullion bars that are marketed and sold for investment purposes will carry a mark or stamp. This would be a hallmark that the refinery that makes the bars will put on products. There are a couple of well-known and trusted bullion brands that you should consider.
- Perth Mint
- Royal Canadian Mint
- Valcambi Credit Suisse
- PAMP Suisse
The Perth Mint is known as the best mint in Australia. The mint is in charge of producing coinage for Australia. In addition to providing the national coinage, the Perth Mint produces .9999 fine gold bullion bars and a couple of bullion coins. The Perth Mint bullion bars have some intricate and elegant designs and are sought after for more than their purity but their beauty too. The mint sells its products in secure, beautiful packaging and certification.
Royal Canadian Mint
The Canadian Royal Mint produces the world’s most famous and purest gold bullion coin, the Canadian Maple Leaf. A lot of refineries and mints struggle to get their purity levels to a fineness of .9999 but the Royal Canadian Mint is the only mint in the world that has managed to produce gold bullion with a fineness of .99999, a few percentages shy of creating the elusive 100% purity. The mint is also responsible for producing Canadian coinage.
The Swiss are known for their exacting precision and quality. If something comes from the Swiss, it is automatically assumed to be of the best quality. When it comes to gold, the highest quality gold bullion is made by PAMP Suisse. Owning PAMP Suisse branded bullion bars will guarantee that there will always be a gold bullion dealer wanting to offer you good money for your gold. The PAMP Suisse brand has stood the test of time and has remained one of the preferred gold bullion brand.
Credit Suisse is another gold bullion brand produced by a country that is known for high quality products, Switzerland. Credit Suisse bars are created by Valcambi specifically for the Credit Suisse bank. The bars come in a range of sizes. From 1 gram to 1 kilogram. One of the most popular Valcambi-Suisse bars is the combibar which happens to be a gold bullion bar that is available in incremental pieces.
We cannot talk about Swiss made bullion bars without including Argor-Heraeus. It is another gold bullion bar that is available in a range of sizes.
These brands are often priced higher than any other brands produced by various refineries. If you want to make sure that you get the best return, you should consider buying any of these brands. This does not mean gold produced by private mints is of a lower quality or cheap, it’s that most private mints don’t subscribe to any quality standards. The refineries listed above all subscribe to the LBMA’s “Good Delivery List”, so you can be sure of quality.
