Buy gold bars in Markham with high purity and fineness
Gold bars, also known as gold bullion or ingots, are popular investment and storage forms of gold. When you buy gold bars in Markham the purity and fineness are essential factors that determine their value and reliability.
Gold purity is expressed in terms of a percentage, indicating the amount of pure gold (also called "fine gold" or "24-karat gold") present in the bar. The purity of gold bars can vary, but there are some common standards:
- 24-Karat Gold (99.99% purity)
This is the highest level of gold purity, containing 99.99% pure gold. It is often used in coins and jewelry. 24-karat gold bars are considered the most valuable due to their high gold content. At Delta Harbour Assets we’re proud our clients can buy gold bars in Markham of the purest quality on the market, we don’t offer anything less.
- 22-Karat Gold (91.67% purity)
This level of purity is common in some gold coins and jewelry. It consists of 91.67% pure gold and is often alloyed with other metals like copper or silver to enhance durability.
- 18-Karat Gold (75% purity)
18-karat gold contains 75% pure gold, making it less pure than 22-karat or 24-karat gold. It is commonly used in high-end jewelry.
- 14-Karat Gold (58.33% purity)
14-karat gold is often used in mainstream jewelry. It consists of 58.33% pure gold and is alloyed with other metals for strength and color.
Fineness is another way to express the purity of gold, particularly in the context of gold bars. It is typically measured in parts per thousand (ppt), with higher numbers indicating greater purity.
- 999.9 (99.99% pure)
Gold bars with a fineness of 999.9 are nearly pure, containing 999.9 parts of gold per thousand. These bars are often used for investment purposes due to their high purity. This is exactly what Delta Harbour Assets offers our clients looking to buy gold bars in Markham.
- 999 (99.9% pure)
Gold bars with a fineness of 999 contain 99.9% pure gold. They are also suitable for investment and are widely accepted in global markets.
- 995 (99.5% pure)
Some gold bars have a fineness of 995, meaning they contain 99.5% pure gold. These are still considered high-quality and are commonly traded.
Significance of karats
The term "karat" is primarily used in jewelry to describe the purity of gold. As mentioned earlier, 24-karat gold is 99.99% pure. When purchasing gold jewelry, the karat value indicates the amount of pure gold in the piece. For example, 18-karat gold jewelry contains 75% pure gold and 25% alloyed metals.
When you buy gold bars in Markham you want to be absolutely sure that you’re getting the highest quality gold bars for your investment. To ensure the accuracy of gold purity and fineness claims, independent assay offices or laboratories conduct tests and issue assay certificates. These certificates provide official verification of the gold's purity, weight and other relevant information. When buying or selling gold bars, especially for larger investments, these certificates are crucial for establishing trust and authenticity. When you buy gold bars in Markham through Delta Harbour, every gold bar comes with an assay certificate verification so you can rest assured in your investment decisions.
The purity levels and fineness standards of gold bars are critical for assessing their value and suitability for various purposes, whether it's for investment, jewelry making or industrial use.
