Gold bars have been a part of human civilization for thousands of years. From its earliest discovery, gold has shown to be a great store of value that served as the primary source of currency in cultures around the world for nearly 2,000 years. Gold, as a source of currency, was only recently abandoned by most nations within the last 100 years. Gold bars remain a popular item among private gold owners as a store of wealth and hedge against inflation. Today, you have the opportunity to buy 25 Gram Gold Bars in varied conditions online at Provident Metals.
For thousands of years, gold bars were used by empires, kingdoms, and governments to hold national wealth. Even in the 21st century, major industrialized nations store billions of dollars in gold bars as a hedge against worst-case scenarios wherein fiat currencies drop drastically in value and stock markets crash.
On the obverse and reverse fields of these 25 Gram Gold Bars are depictions that will vary from one to the next. Generally speaking, minted gold ingots have designs on both the obverse and reverse. These designs are often intricate and include mint logos with identifying hallmarks. Conversely, cast gold bars and hand-poured gold bars are traditional, rugged products with markings on just one side that are often limited to identifying hallmarks only. Please bear in mind that the images associated with this listing are for visual representations only and should not be construed as a guarantee of what is in stock at any point in time.
Though nations around the world have turned away from gold and silver in circulation currency over the last century, that doesnt mean governments have lost interest in hoarding gold. The United States holds the worlds single-largest reserve of gold bars with an estimated 8,133.5 tones of gold. In fact, the United States holds more gold bullion in reserve than the next three nations combined: Germany, Italy, and France, respectively.
These 25 Gram Gold Bars come in varied conditions from any mint. Each one is packaged in a plastic bag for delivery. The bars offered here could be in new or like-new condition, or even show varying degrees of wear and tear. Please note flaws are possible on any given bar in this listing.
