Gold Bars, also commonly referred to as ingots, are privately minted gold assets that are typically purchased by investors in 1 oz., 10 oz., or 100 oz. increments as they are easier to buy and sell in smaller denominations. Larger bars, up to 500 oz. are traded on COMEX and other major exchanges.
Since gold bars are privately minted by a variety of companies such as Engelhard, Johnson Matthey and Credit Suisse among other, there are a wide range of designs and mint marks. However, all reputable gold bars will have gold mass, purity and issuing company either on the reverse or obverse of the bar.
