Calculate your Minted Bar investment’s potential
Let’s compare the performance of gold in the SA Bullion International Facility against cash in the bank over the last 10 years.
Invest a portion of your wealth in Gold.
Invest your capital in an asset that you can rely on. Gold, unlike other investment options such as shares, bonds and cash, has actual intrinsic value. Gold acts as a shield against inflation. During times of economic uncertainty, gold held outside of the banking system offers certainty. Gold is a remarkable risk-diversifier for your portfolio. When held internationally, gold removes the risk of government appropriation and enables economic internationalization.Learn More
Our International Products
SA Bullion International deals in Krugerrands that are brand new and freshly minted. In South Africa the coins carry legal tender status and are therefore underwritten by the central bank. The Krugerrand carries a price premium due to its high standard of crafting. Owing to its high international brand recognition it enjoys exceptional international acceptability.
The company deals in 100g Minted Bars sourced from Rand Refinery and various international refineries and mints. The bars are 999.9 i.e. 99.99% purity or 24 karat (pure gold). A 100g Minted Bar is equivalent in gold-content to 3.215 Krugerrands. Due to much simpler fabrication than the Krugerrand, Minted Bars are highly price effective
The company deals in 1000g Cast Bars sourced from Rand Refinery and various international refineries and mints. The bars are 999.9 i.e. 99.99% purity or 24 karat (pure gold). A “Kilobar” is equivalent in gold-content to 32.15 Krugerrands. Due to simpler fabrication than Krugerrands and Minted Bars, Kilobars are the most price-effective means of acquiring investment gold.

Key Features of the Facilities
The SA Bullion International Facilities bring together the benefits of direct gold ownership and the benefits of a major international investment service.
Clients own their gold directly. In terms of Deposit Law, SA Bullion International is providing safekeeping for Clients’ gold while ownership remains with the Client.
Gold is unlike any other asset. Physical gold cannot go bankrupt or be mismanaged. Gold requires no trust in anyone or anything.
Gold is the oldest form of currency known to mankind. It is the one-and-only currency that has maintained its value of 2,000 years.
Outside of the System
Physical gold with SA Bullion is not exposed to the financial risks of banks, the credit risks of currencies, or the balance sheets of companies or the political risks of governments. It stands alone.
Safe, Secure and Convenient
Gold is risky and hazardous to possess. We take care of full insurance and auditing in two of the safest jurisdictions in the world in terms of both criminal and governmental risk.
Economies of Scale
For individuals, dealing in gold is expensive. SA Bullion deals in excess of a billion Rand in gold each year. Clients enjoy considerable pricing benefits from the SA Bullion volumes.
