What is Gold Price Per Gram?
The gram is the entry level weight of a gold or silver bar. It is the smallest bar you can buy. Coins can also be bought in grams and are referred to as fractional because most coins are 1 troy ounce. The troy ounce is the standard unit of measurement for precious metals and one troy ounce is 31.1034807 grams. The standard ounce is 28.35 grams, a little bit less than the troy ounce. Even this slight difference demonstrates where grams can matter or might be worth noting. Buying in grams allows for versatility.
Why Buy Gold in Grams?
Buying gold in grams is a great alternative for consumers looking to make a smaller investment or who just want to own more pieces. One gram gold bars require less space to store and allow the individual consumer to have more variety, compared to buying a one ounce bar. Larger gold bars require special storage and insurance and are not as easy to buy, sell, trade or transport than their smaller counterparts. An investor could more affordably purchase multiple bars from many different mints when choosing the one gram size.
What Size Gold Bar or Coin Should I Choose?
Choosing a bullion size is totally personal and you should consider what size works best for your needs.
Do you have the capacity to store several dozen 1 ounce gold coins? Do you prefer the look of gold coins over gold bars? Or does it make more sense to own a single 100 ounce gold bar? With so many weights of measurement to choose from, owning a variety or just a simple selection of bullion become options for the average consumer.
