Gold & Silver Bullion
Coins, Bars & Rounds in South Burlington, VT
Gold, along with silver, has long been known as the primary means of real money. For thousands of years, gold has been used in trade. It is real, scarce, cannot be artificially reproduced, and has inherent value. Gold has stood the test of time more than any other form of currency. You won’t find any other paper money that was around hundreds of years ago, but you will see that gold is just as in demand now as it was then.
Gold bars are what most people think of when they consider gold bullion, and with good reason. Gold bars come in many different shapes and sizes. Starting off at 1 gram, gold bars can be as large as you can possibly imagine. The most commonly traded bars fall into the 1 oz and lower range, with many different varieties available.
There are three different primary types of silver bullion: bars, rounds, and coins. A bar and round, for all intents and purposes, are the same thing with a different shape. Bars and rounds are minted and produced by private companies, and are most often sold to silver investors. Coins, on the other hand, most often end up in private collections.
