These 5-gram gold bars are the second-smallest gold bars available from Australia’s Perth Mint (only the 1 gram gold bar is smaller). In keeping with LBMA Good Delivery standards, each bar is inscribed with Perth Mint’s swan logo on the obverse side, along with weight and gold purity. The reverse features the silhouette of a kangaroo adorning the flat gold surface of the bar in a repeating, eye-catching pattern. A raised outer lip adds character to the bar, and a matte finish gives a frosted sheen to both sides.

Each 5 gram Perth Mint gold bar is made of 0.9999 fine gold and sealed in a protective blister pack attached to an assay card containing technical specifications. If the airtight blister pack is breached, the word “VOID” is displayed on the edges. This ingenious tamper-proof design makes it easy to verify that a bar is in mint condition and has not been tampered with or altered. This guarantees the authenticity and makes the appraisal process for resale straightforward.

Due to the smaller size of these bars, trading or bartering in more precise measurements is possible. These bars represent highly flexible investments in gold. Many investors vary their holdings with larger and smaller bars and coins to diversify their precious metals collection. This diversification is smart because it helps hedge against losses in value of any one particular bar or coin. 

The manufacturing process for each bar and the lower weight means 5 g bars come at a higher premium over the spot price of gold than larger bars. Production costs are about the same for each bar regardless of size, and therefore production costs increase as a  percentage of overall price as the size of the gold bar decreases.

Investors can purchase these bars for a precious metals IRA, allowing you to save for your retirement while investing in a physical, tangible asset not stored on a computer system. You’ll have ownership rights to each of your gold bars and may choose to store them, view them, and handle them yourself as you wish. Your bars cannot be hacked or erased, nor are they subject to the “tracking errors” that occur when the price of paper-based gold and spot gold diverge. As the saying goes, possession is indeed 9/10ths of the law.

If you want to invest in physical precious metals, Perth Mint’s 5-gram gold bar offers a good balance of affordability and flexibility. This size also makes a substantial gift for loved ones who don’t quite deserve a 10 gram or 1-ounce gold bar.

What are your shipping, handling, and insurance charges?
BullionMax offers free shipping when you spend over $min_freeship_cart. We have no minimum order requirement; however, orders under $min_freeship_cart will be charged a shipping fee of $9.95. 


How long before you ship my order?
Once your payment has cleared, we will begin processing, packaging, and shipping your order. How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order, and your specific products. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation, with a link to find your shipment tracking information on your account page.


Do you ship internationally?
No, not at this time. 


How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes. 


How do you ship my order?
We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS in discreet, secure packaging. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships. 


Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim.
We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.


Can you ship my order to my post office box?
No, we cannot ship to a post office box. 


Do I have to sign for my shipment?
Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.


Do you ship to U.S. territories?
We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.


What does “No Will Call” mean?
All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.


Where do you ship orders from?
All orders will ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, California.  We conceal the return address on all packages so as to not hint at the contents of the package.


Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?
No, we do not. The costs of shipping to these states are extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.


Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?
No, we do not. Sorry.


Do you ship to UPS store locations?
No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.


My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?
We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection. 
If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.


What happens if my order is lost in transit?
We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
