One in a Bullion
Within the realm of precious metals, and some hobbies such as coin collecting, you will hear the term “bullion.” The term “bullion” refers to gold, silver, platinum and other precious metals in the form of coins, bars or rounds. They differ from coins and other legal tender in that their price is calculated from the value of the metals they contain—not necessarily the rarity of the object.
What Forms Do Bullion Take?
When you purchase bullion, it may come as a coin, bar or round and in a variety of metals including gold, silver and platinum. What matters is the type of precious metal the bullion is made from, as well as its mass and purity. Buyers seeking bullion for sale look at weight in troy ounces (a troy ounce is slightly heavier than a standard ounce), grams or kilograms. When you buy bullion online, make sure the item is stamped with weight and manufacturer hallmark guaranteeing purity. Most bullion has a hallmark of 0.999 fine, but some items are more or less pure.
