20g Gold Bars are produced by almost all the world’s most renowned mints, with the exception of the Royal Mint in London. This has led to it becoming one of the most popular gold bullion products and has widespread appeal for small and large investors alike. For small investors, the weight is towards the affordable end and, due to its ubiquity with the largest producers of bullion on the planet, is one of the more reliable products.
Gold bars are usually produced in two ways, casting and minting. Both produce wildly different looking products and come with inherent advantages and disadvantages. In the case of casted bars, these use a mould into which liquid gold is poured and the gold bar is set. Because of the mould used and the nature of the process, no two bars are the same. In the case of minted bars, these are cut from gold blanks, with each product the same as the next, aside from the various manufacturer’s stamp. Mass casting is more expensive than minting, but forgeries are easier to trace due to the uniqueness of each bar.
20g Gold Bars are somewhere in the middle range of gold bar products, and as such security features are rare as they tend to only be implemented for products over 250g. This can leave these smaller weights more prone to forgeries or inferior products.
The best way to guard against forgeries is to deal with respected vendors, something that is particularly important when buying products online.
