The Different Types & Forms of Bullion

Bul · lion /ˈbo͝olyən/


gold or silver in bulk before coining, or valued by weight. “gold bullion”

Bullion refers to a precious metal like gold, silver, platinum, palladium, and rhodium in bulk form that is valued by its weight in either troy ounce or grams. Bullion comes in different forms, there are bullion coins, bars, ingots, and rounds. People buy precious metals because they are a permanent asset and a sound long term investment as values tend to increase over time. The smaller the weight, the more costly the bullion is to produce, resulting in a higher premium for smaller denomination bullion. Whenever prices are low, smart investors buy larger quantities of precious metal bullion.

Bars & Ingots

A bar will be marked with its weight and purity. Bullion bars are valued exclusively based on the content of the precious metal. 

Ingots refer more to the shape of casted metal and can apply to both precious & non-precious metals.


The value of a bullion round is based solely on its precious metal content. Bullion rounds are for collection, not for circulation, and have no currency value.

Gold Bullion

There are many ways to buy and own gold. Coins and small bars offer a popular option for investing in precious metal. Bullion gold coins are used as an alternative form of wealth storage to traditional currency. The attraction of bullion gold coins is that they retain near full value regardless of either change of government or being transported outside their country of issue.

Silver Bullion

When you don’t have a lot of extra money and you still want to make a sound investment investing in a precious metal, silver is a good choice. As a scarce commodity with a wide range of uses, the value of silver will never go to zero. With a history of silver being used as money going back thousands of years, there will always be a liquid market for silver coins regardless of what dollar price they may command in the future.

Platinum Bullion

Platinum is considered an industrial metal. The automotive industry utilizes platinum in automotive catalysts to minimize the harmful effects of emissions. After the auto industry, jewelry accounts for the majority of platinum demand. Petroleum and chemical refining catalysts, as well as the computer industry use up the rest. Platinum mines are heavily concentrated in South Africa and Russia exclusively.

Like gold and silver, platinum is traded around the clock on global commodity markets. Platinum tends to fetch a higher price than gold during routine periods of market and political stability simply because it is much rarer.

Palladium Bullion

Palladium is a highly rare precious metal with even smaller above-ground physical supplies than silver, gold, and platinum. Like platinum, palladium is a lustrous, silver-white metal. It has many of the same applications. The largest application is in automobile catalytic converters, with smaller uses in jewelry, dentistry, surgical instruments, and electronics. Palladium investing is a relatively new phenomenon when compared to the history of silver or gold. Palladium is a great way to diversify a bullion holding.
