Buy Pure, Quality Gold, Silver, Platinum Bullion
Bullion Ownership with Good Delivery Status
All bars purchased through the BullionBars™ program meet industry good delivery status. This means that all bullion bars meet minimum quality and size standards set out in good delivery rules of the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), the pre-eminent bullion marketing association in the world. These industry standards allow members to transact and transport physical bullion with each other without the need to verify purity, weight and other bar specifications. This allows bar owners, should they so choose, to sell their bullion into the most liquid precious metals markets worldwide.
Precious metals bars that meet good delivery rules are kept within what is known as a “chain of integrity”, where member dealers, refiners and custodians can rest assured that the bars have never left the system. The BullionBars™ program will not accept bullion from clients or refiners who are not part of this system because we would not know, without an assay, if a counterfeit or impure bar was being represented as a pure bar. The chain of integrity ensures that all bars held by authorized custodians are only Good Delivery bars, without compromise or chance of counterfeit or impure bars entering the system.
Good Delivery bullion bars are cast by a small group of metals refiners accredited by the professional bullion dealing communities:
- London Bullion Market Association (LBMA)
- New York Commodities Exchange (COMEX)
- London Platinum and Palladium Market (LPPM)
Good Delivery bullion bars are accurately assayed and guaranteed:
- Gold 99.5 percent pure or better
- Silver 99.9 percent pure or better
- Platinum 99.95 percent pure or better
From the day they are manufactured:
- Good Delivery bars are stored in bullion vaults
- Bars are recognized and monitored by the gold-dealing community
- The same standard applies for silver and platinum
Chain of Integrity
When bullion bars are transferred by an LBMA approved transport such as Brinks and delivered to an LBMA member vault, a record is maintained showing continuous storage through trusted hands. This audit trail, or chain of integrity, guarantees the bar’s authenticity and becomes key to assuring the liquidity of the precious metal upon the sale of a bar. For more details see FAQ
For gold and platinum, the market trades the bar’s pure metal content, known as fine ounces. Clients don’t pay for gold or platinum impurities ; silver bars include impurities in the bar weight.
