Hundreds of companies manufacture gold bullion bars. Most of these companies can only afford to refine, produce and distribute a couple hundred thousand ounces or less each year. Over 2600 tons of gold are mined each year, so it requires millions of ounces and decades of standing out above the crowd for a bullion bar maker to gain global recognition. A few firms have long stood out as the premier names in gold bullion bars. For a bullion bar manufacturer to earn global popularity it must guarantee the weight and purity of all bars, and the company’s bars must offer instant liquidity around the world.
So, which bullion manufacturers have made a name for themselves as reliable producers of fine gold bars? Bars that bear the following names stand out more than all others for their consistency, reputation and worldwide acceptability. The most popular gold bullion bars, listed in order of total sales volume, are:
10. Holy Land Mint
7. Perth Mint
6. Sunshine Minting
4. PAMP Suisse
These companies produce the world’s most popular gold bullion bars because clients know exactly what they are buying every single time, without exception.
These gold refining companies offer a wide selection of bullion products. Do you prefer brick-style bullion or loaf-poured bars? Are you buying a one gram “stamp” as a gift or do you need a kilo bar to store within your IRA? Will “X” amount of bars fit into your 10×10 safe, or would a different number of larger/smaller bars work better?
These are questions that your gold dealer can help you answer. If you do not have a gold dealer or simply do not want to be “sold” then call the Certified Gold Exchange at 1-800-300-0715 and one of the non-commissioned representatives at our Help Desk can point you in the right direction based on your personal and financial goals.
