Coins & small bars
Small amounts of bullion at home
There are a growing number of ways to buy gold. Before the internet era, choice was more limited, but today there are new ways to invest in gold. One traditional way to buy gold bullion was using coins and small bars. Whilst they are tangible investments, coins and bars suffer from limitations:
- Inefficient to buy/sell
- Problems of arranging storage and insurance
- Differing coin value
Buying gold bars and coins can still be useful; perhaps keep small amounts at home for emergencies. Ultimately most investors find it too much cost and hassle to buy gold this way, preferring to more efficiently buy gold online at the live gold price..
