Investors often choose 5g gold bars to boost existing portfolios but they’re a smart choice for new buyers too. Less expensive than larger gold bars, 5g bars still contain a substantial amount of fine 24 carat gold and are a widely welcomed alternative to cash. Whether you’re looking for a way to protect against inflation or whether you’d like to make gold part of a pension plan, those bars are a sound option. We only stock bars from LBMA approved refiners and all gold bar purchases are VAT Free to EU buyers. Gold bars also make thoughtful gifts.
