GBA has a fully custodial custom built vaulting facility – Gold Bullion Australia Treasury Reserve ( GBATR)

We can arrange for the automatic vaulting of your bullion purchases within a high security facility. All vaulted bullion is fully insured.

Location and Trading Hours

GBA’s Head Office, Vaulting facility and public trading office are located in South East Qld at Miami on the Gold Coast. All over the counter trade is done at these premises.

Due to affiliations with certain dealers, some in-person transactions may be completed in other capital cities. Please contact us for more details.

The store is open Monday to Friday, 9.00am until 5.00pm with the exception of public holidays and a number of days during the Christmas and New Year period. These dates will be advertised on our website.

Bullion Products

Yes. All products sold by GBA are investment grade ( 9999 for gold and 999 for silver)

Precious metal is measured in troy ounces

1 troy oz = 31.10 grams

1kilo = 32.15 troy oz

The only difference between brands is that some carry extra serial numbers in addition to their mandatory bullion stamps. Some brands that are imported will cost more to reflect the expense of their importation.

This is simply due to greater manufacturing and packaging costs.

The best way to mitigate this cost is to purchase these types of products in larger quantities where bulk discounts apply.

Bullion and Product Pricing

Gold and silver prices are based in USD ( the current world reserve currency) and the spot price is the paper share price that the metals are traded for globally. Spot prices must be converted into local currency and premiums added to cover manufacturing and distribution costs.

Metal prices are set in USD. This means that the rate of exchange between local currency and the USD has just as much impact on metal prices for Australians as the metal price itself.

Investment grade bullion ( 9960+ for gold and 9950 + for silver) is exempt from GST in Australia. Please note that the vast majority of world coins designed for circulation are below this purity and will have GST applied to them. Please ask if you have any questions regarding coin products.

Customer Registration

If you buy or sell bullion with a value that exceeds $5,000.00, the law stipulates that you register as a customer. You can do this in person or online. The information that you provide is confidential and may only be released without your consent via subpoena or court order.

The Government body AUSTRAC stipulates that all businesses who are at risk of facilitating terrorism financing or money laundering be able to identify their customers. This includes banks, funds remitters, casinos and bullion dealers.

SMSF

This is a question for your financial adviser, as it depends on the type of asset and the requirements as stated in your SMSF Trust. Generally, collectable items such as coins are required to be stored and insured at a purpose built secure environment rather than held by the trustees.

Although Serial numbered bars greatly assist with SMSF auditing procedures, they do come at a higher cost and are not mandatory. Many auditors insist that SMSFs demonstrate their bullion holdings are being stored safely and at arms-length. The vaulting services provided by Gold Bullion Australia Treasury Reserve (GBATR) are becoming increasingly popular, and they meet these strict SMSF storage guidelines no matter which product you choose.

Yes. You will have access to online metal account statements providing current valuation, transaction history and account details.

It is wise to speak with your financial adviser regarding the type of product and the investment strategy. At GBA we see many SMSF investors purchasing cast bars and pooled allocated due the cost effectiveness and ability to regularly top up investments.

Yes, but first you must have a self- managed fund set up. This best done by an accountant or financial advisor who will be able to help you decide if this path is right for you.

Buying Process

The various types of clients who invest with us range from small individual investors to companies, trusts and self-managed superannuation funds. Unfortunately, we are unable to advise you in relation to your own investment decision as we do not hold a financial adviser’s licence. If you’re a first time investor you may want to consult with your accountant or a financial planner. With the rising uncertainty in the world, history has proved time and again that owning gold and silver is an excellent way to preserve an individual’s wealth. It’s important for both experienced and new investors to keep up to date with market news, and we recommend the World Gold Council’s website, invest.gold.org, as a good place to start.

Physical gold and silver are an asset class, just the same as shares, bonds or property. The golden rule of a balanced portfolio is to spread your assets over a number of classes, thus maximizing potential returns and reducing risk. Gold and silver do not correlate directly with other asset classes, which means they can afford your portfolio a natural “shield” from the same effects that the market has on assets that are strongly correlated.
For centuries, gold and silver have been seen as a safe haven from currency deflation, and as an unrivaled preservation of wealth – an attitude which persists today.
This explains why in the current economic climate, more and more people are investing in these metals. Please explore the graphs in our website to review historical metal prices.
