What Are The Engelhard Gold Bars?

By Jack Wogan

In 1902, Charles Engelhard, a successful businessman, decided to start buying small companies. Among his acquisitions was Baker & Co, focused on smelting and refining platinum. Scenting the profitability of this industry branch, the man developed this type of business, up to the moment when it became the world’s largest precious metal operating company.

The name Engelhard soon became known to both investors and collectors. He offered on the market gold, silver, platinum bars and liquid gold. Used as spray this could have decorative purposes. The contemporary recession made people more aware of the need to have savings and to gather assets such as coins, jewels and precious stones.

The dimensions as well as the shapes of Engelhard bars can be very different. The smallest one weighs only 1g. The others can have 5g, 1 oz, 2 oz and the largest one is the one kilo bar. Ingots of intermediary weights complete the list of products provided by this company. With a purity of 999.9, each of these pieces of gold is worth investing in.

Collectors interested in buying gold have started gathering them because the design of these items has improved in time. The marks on them make them easy to recognize. The logo of the company consisting of a large E placed on an earth like shape is stamped on every piece of bullion along with the name of its owner. The name of the continent Australia or a picture of it is also present on many bars. The one kilo bar is an exception from this series having written on it Engelhard London and a small logo.

A gold bar with an interesting shape is the 1 oz piece. Being square it draws the attention of collectors, especially because these items are not very common. The beautiful aspect of certain gold bars and their purity of gold makes them a good investment for any person.

Professionals can offer you tips on how buying gold can help you in times of recession.
