Let’s talk gold and silver bars. It’s the type of bullion that has a really high precious metal content and thus a single bar can make you much more money than coins or jewelry. The name ‘bar’ refers to the shape gold or silver are casted in – it looks literally like a chocolate bar, usually it’s a bit similar to a KitKat. Make sure not to bite it though!
Most popular gold bar brands
PAMP Suisse – This Swiss manufacturer is one of the most renowned and well-known gold bullion producer.

Some advice on storing your gold and silver bars
Gold and silver bars are expensive and can often constitute a large chunk of your net worth. They might be a means for saving for the future, sending your kids to the university or buying a new car. The last thing you want to do is to find out your precious metals had been stolen. Here are some pieces of useful advice from Spot4Coins to you. Keep them in mind when starting your collection!
Have someone you trust
Life changes quickly, sometimes for better, but sometimes also, unfortunately, for worse. We assume you keep your gold or silver bars hidden away in a safe or other safe spot. However, if anything happens to you, you fall ill, or, God forbid, die, your gold might be lost along with all the plans you wanted to spend it on. That’s why you should have a trusted person who knows where your bars are located, how much are they worth and how to access them. Don’t pick this person recklessly – it should be someone you’d trust your life to!
Don’t spread the news
A piece of information such as “X has got plenty of gold in his house” can spread like wildfire. And you won’t be able to control whose ears it falls on. You should be wary of speaking about your gold collections, perhaps only to your partner or the trusted person. The reason for it is that it can easily attract people who might want to steal your bars. Keep it on the low.
It’s more than a safe
A safe is a good option, but a determined thief can either crack the code or make you give up the combination. That’s why you should employ some simple DIY theft protection:
- Decoys – Burglars will probably be content with coins that look gold, but are actually gold-plated. That’s of course, until they find out, which will be too late for them! Having some decoys laying around can help you save your actual bars, should such an unpleasant situation happen.
- Hide them deep – Burglaries need to be quick to be successful. Thieves don’t have time to dig deep into your wardrobes to find a your bars. They will be able to find your gold even in your oldest, most hidden wardrobe if it is not covered with at least three layers of useless junk.
- Bury it – You can also dig a hole in your backyard, bury your gold and plant some flowers. Make sure to use a corrosion, insects and humidity-proof box!
