Investing in Gold Bars
With such an extensive range of products available to bullion investors worldwide, buying gold bars is widely considered to be the most cost-effective way for investors to gain exposure to physical gold. This is because the production costs for gold bars are lower than that for gold coins, so gold bars offer investors a more affordable way to diversify their investment portfolio.
