The 250 Gram Gold Bar is a mainstay of global gold bullion investment. Particularly popular for those with larger and diverse portfolios, these bars are among the more valuable of the typical gold bullion bar products. Gold has been used as a currency for several thousands of years in human history, beginning in Egypt. It is this history, and the subsequent reliability of the commodity as an investment, that makes gold bars so popular with investors to this day.
In recent years the process of purifying gold has been all but perfected, with 24 carat products (99.9999% pure) being ubiquitous for both investors of products such as gold bullion and collectors of jewellery alike. The purer the gold, however, the more malleable the product, meaning that the handling and storing of gold has to be done with the utmost care. Most gold investors, however, buy unallocated bullion, which is essentially owning a portion of gold reserves that the buyer never needs to see nor handle. Not only does this take away from the risk of theft, it also lets professionals handle and store the products.
Forgeries remain a problem for many gold investors, and this is particularly an issue for those with smaller weights, such as those under 250 g, as very rarely are these products afforded the luxury of high-tech security features. For bars of 250 g and above, however, features such as serial numbers and even holographic stamping, which makes forgery extremely difficult, are commonplace
Another way to protect against forgeries and improperly advertised products is to only used trusted vendors.
