As the world's economy panics, more and more people are turning to gold as a secure investment. In many countries in the world, gold bars are bought and sold over the counter at major banks. These gold bars provide a secure investment and a good value as well.

We strongly recommend investing in actual physical gold, something you can touch, see, and touch. You can purchase gold bars in many different sizes and many different measurements. The troy ounce being the most widely recognized form of measurement, but the tola and tael are also used to measure gold. Storing your gold becomes a problem as you begin to accumulate more and more. It can be very difficult, and even dangerous to travel around with gold bars. Thus a gold account has become the preferred method of holding gold for a small to medium investor. Many Swiss and offshore banks will help you to buy, sell, and store your gold bars safely and securely. Apart from storing gold at the safe deposit box in home or at a bank, investors can also place gold in unallocated or allocated storage with a dealer or a bank. There is always the risk of the bank you are dealing with going bankrupt, so do your due diligence as always and make an educated decision for where you decide to store your gold.

Buying gold bars is almost always cheaper than buying gold coins, you generally purchase more gold per bar than you would per coin, so that increases the savings, but you also can avoid VAT and sales taxes that are levied on gold coin purchases. However, both kinds of bullion have benefits and drawbacks. More liquid, easily movable, higher value, easier to store... A good diversified gold investment portfolio will include both bars and coins.

We have an ebook specially written for investing in and storing gold in this economy. You might want to consider taking a look at it for some very real, very valuable insights into actually buying gold bullion: "The Gold Report" by Peter Macfarlane.
