Precious Metal Investment with Geiger Gold Bullion Bars

Some of the most recognizable, refined, bars of gold for sale on the market today are gold Geiger bars. Gold Geiger bars are gold bullion bars produced by the Swiss company Geiger Edelmetalle Aktiengesellschaft. The German name translates directly to English as Violinist Precious Metals Stock Corporation. Commonly referred to as simply Geiger, this precious metals company has locations in St. Gallen, Switzerland; Brainkofen, Germany; and Leipzig, Germany. Some historians suggest Geiger Edelmetalle began operation in the year 1218 when it helped establish the first silver trade in Germany (i.e. the Kingdom of Germany within the Holy Roman Empire, also called the “Holy Empire”).

Geiger is a London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) affiliate member, and their hallmark is recognized worldwide as among the most elite gold brands. Geiger produces items for themselves as well as sovereigns and white label services. The Geiger website sales more than just Geiger precious metal items, they also sell such items as Umicore gold bars, Royal Canadian Mint Canada maple leafs, British Royal Mint Britannia coin and Queen Beasts, Austria Mint philharmonic, Perth Mint Australia kangaroo coins, US Mint eagles, South Africa Mint Krugerrands, China Mint Chinese panda, Argor-Heraeus bars, Valcambi CombiBar, and bullion coins, among many more.

The Leipzig location is inside Güldengossa Castle, also known as Schloss Güldengossa, which was built in the Baroque style in 1720. This Schloss Güldengossa branch location has since been passed down from generation to generation of this family business. The image of this Leipzig location is the iconic image shared on most gold bar Geiger Edelmetalle items as a special signature of their distinguished brand.

Geiger Edelmetalle AG is known for its high-quality craftsmanship and attention to detail producing gold bars, silver bars, copper bars, silver coins, rounds, medals, and more. Geiger gold bars are widely recognized and loved throughout the US and the world. The Geiger gold bar line is what we will focus on here.

The purity of gold Geiger bars is guaranteed at least .9999 fine gold (four nines fine), which is 99.99% pure 24-karat gold. Each gold bar is carefully crafted by their goldsmith sister company, mint, and refinery, Leipziger Edelmetallverarbeitung GmbH, which performs the minting processes for their silver, gold, platinum, palladium, and copper products. Leipziger also assures the quality, weight, and purity of each precious metal item minted in their facility.

Geiger produces gold bars

For every product minted by this sister company along with Geiger, the initials LEV are the official mintmark or hallmark located on the metal item. The initials LEV are then repeated on the back of the gold bars as a textured design and security feature. Additional security features for Geiger and LEV gold bars include a black light reflective stamp that has a reflective rhombus shape and a reflective serial number of the particular bar. Each bar has reeded edges, which is also considered a security feature.

Many Geiger gold bars come in an assay card or assay package that affirms and guarantees the weight, precious metal content, and fineness of the packaged metal. Included on Geiger gold bar assays are the weight, metal content, fineness, and production manager’s signature.

For example, on the back bottom of a 1 oz t Geiger gold bar, it has the German and English words “Gewicht” and “Weight,” “Feinheit” and “Fineness,” “Produktionsleiter” and “Production Manager.” Below each respective wording that lists German on top, then English below that, is the final bit of respective information below that in order - “1 oz,” “AU 999,9,” and then the respective production manager’s signature for that given product and year of production.

On the front of Geiger gold bars, there is the famous depiction of the Castle Güldengossa in a gold frame, and below it are the words “Schloss Güldengossa.” Above the framed castle image, are the words “Geiger Edelmetalle.” Below the framed castle image are the listed the weight, the metal, and the purity. For example, on the one Troy ounce Geiger gold bar, below the framed castle image, it says “1oz FEINGOLD 999,9” which is German for “1 ounce .9999 fine gold.”

On the front of Geiger assay cards are the words “Gieger Original” at the top, and at the front bottom are the words “Made in Germany.”

Geiger offers several sizes of minted gold bars, including fractional gold bars which make them convenient for bartering, trading, and collecting. A smaller god bar is commonly referred to as an ingot, while for Geiger specifically they may be referred to as a Geiger square. Most people buy Geiger gold bars for the bullion gold bar content as a way to build a personal store of value, hedge against inflation, and protect wealth.

The most common sizes of gold bars by Geiger include the following:

  • 1 gram
  • 5 gram
  • 10 gram
  • 20 gram
  • 1 ounce
  • 50 gram
  • 100 gram
  • 250 gram
  • 500 gram

  • 25 x 1 gram
  • 30 x 1 gram

Geiger bars draw a slightly higher premium than more simplistic gold bullion bars, so it is possible that when selling on the secondary market a seller may not be able to ask for as much as they initially invested. Most buyers of precious metals such as gold, in this case, pay closer to the gold spot price. Some precious metals buyers may pay an additional premium, but it will likely take longer to make such as sale than simply selling at the spot price.
