Did you know...

that a standard gold bar is an internationally tradable bar that meets certain standards, most often those of the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), especially purity of at least 995/1,000 and weight of between 350 and 430 troy ounces (most often 400 troy ounces, i.e. roughly 12,441 g, or simply 12.5 kg)? A bar must bear the mark of an internationally recognised producer, along with its number and its purity. Where the purity is not indicated, a certificate should be attached showing the company that tested the bar and the number and purity of the bar. There are only a few dozen issuing companies in the world.
