Buy a one-kilo gold bar
If you are looking to invest in gold or diversify your finances, buying gold bullion is a highly attractive option. Buying one kilo of gold can seem overwhelming but there are other options. Bullion comes in sizes of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 250, 500 grams, and even an ounce. There are also 20 x 1 gram and 50 x 1 gram gold combibars available. You can find something to fit your budget. This also gives you the ability to adapt or add to your investment depending on how your resources change. GFI can help you and advise you on how you should diversify your investments.Buy a kilo of gold
Why buy gold bullion?
- Simplicity: there is no issue on numismatic value, origin or grade. A gold bar is made from 999.9 pure gold, in other words, 24 karat gold.
- Different sizes available to suit all budgets: bars from 5g to 1kg.
- The spread (difference between the buying price and sale price) is narrow. In this way, you buy and sell gold as close as possible to the spot price (price of gold set by the market).
- The gold bars we offer are certified by the LBMA.
- They are reputable and tradable anywhere in the world.
- They allow you to invest substantial amounts and avoid having to store a large number of coins.
- Inflation protection: their value is decoupled from financial and currency markets.
- They are a comforting physical asset that would be an excellent addition to your investment portfolio.
Why is a one-kilo gold bar seen as a benchmark?
A kilo gold bar is the preeminent way to invest in gold. While the troy ounce is the official unit of measure, the one-kilo gold bar acts at the benchmark for many investors. At GFI, we only sell bars certified by the LBMA (London Bullion Market Association), an association of precious metals professionals who supervise gold and silver markets. The gold bars are labelled “good delivery”, a guarantee that they comply with criteria on their production, origin and quality.

On the other hand, a kilo bar cannot be divided up and is thus less liquid. When you decide to sell it, you will have to sell the entire gold bar. The cash you receive will be the price you accept for the one kilogram. It might be a good idea to diversify your investment into different sizes of bullion.
