Gold bars, sometimes referred to as gold ingots, are minted in a variety of sizes anywhere between 1- and 400-oz. The largest bars typically carry the smallest premium and are often traded on major exchanges (e.g. COMEX, etc.); however, they are more difficult to trade in the secondary market because of their size and value. Investors more commonly acquire 1-oz. and 10-oz. gold bar sizes.
