ChipGold - Gold 101

Gold bullion coins are still considered a safe investment during tough economic times. A modern version of these is ChipGold. ChipGold is a gold ingot. Each ingot is vacuum-sealed on a credit card-shaped backing. They are available in a variety of weights from one gram up to 20 grams, and one-quarter ounces to one ounce.

ChipGold is produced by Kitco in North America. Kitco is a bullion dealer and they sell their ChipGold bars online through their Web site. ChipGold ingots can also be purchased on eBay. In Europe the bars are made by a jeweler and retain chain, Goldas. The European ChipGold has several security features to guarantee its authenticity. These include a tracking number and a serial number on the bar, as well as a bar code. Additional high tech protection is provided by a small hologram on the ChipGold and a logo that is only visible under a UV light.

The purity of ChipGold is .9999. It is a 24k and should be presented with a certificate to authenticate its quality and purity. ChipGold conforms to international standards, which is another reason it is popular as an investment. The ingots are considered to be a tangible investment, something that you can actually touch, as well as a liquid asset, something that can be sold quickly and at any time with little loss in its value.

Back to the Gold 101

Gold was first discovered thousands of years ago in its natural state, in streams, which lead to mining all over the world. Its brilliance, natural beauty, great malleability and resistance to tarnish made it enjoyable to work with. Gold gave rise to the concept of money itself. Today gold is used for jewelry fabrication, industrial application, and medical uses, by governments and central banks and by private investors.
