Safety Tips for Buying Gold Bullion this Dhanteras

Dhanteras, is one of the most auspicious days in the Hindu calendar for buying Gold. It marks the beginning of the five-day Diwali celebrations and is traditionally associated with cleansing, renovation, and, most prominently, the purchase of precious metals like gold. With millions of individuals and families flocking to purchase gold bullion on this day, ensuring that one buys genuine gold is extremely important. 


Here are some crucial safety tips for buying Gold Bullion this Dhanteras:

Buy from Reputable Dealers: Whether you’re purchasing from a physical store or online, always choose a reputable and well-established dealer. AU Bullion is proud to be an Authorized Dealer of The Royal Canadian Mint, this is an esteemed title that is given only to reputable dealers. 

Ask for an Invoice: Always insist on getting a invoice for your purchase. It not only ensures transparency in terms of rate and weight but also is a crucial document if you decide to sell or exchange the gold in the future.

Verify Weight and Purity: When buying gold bullion, especially in the form of coins or bars, ensure that the weight and purity mentioned on the product align with what’s mentioned on the invoice. If you purchase a bar, majority of the time you will receive it in an assay card that has the weight and purity written on it. 

Avoid Cash Transactions: For added security, especially for significant purchases, avoid dealing in cash. Using traceable transaction methods like debit cards or e-transfer can provide an additional layer of documentation.

Online Purchases: If buying gold online, ensure the website is secure (look for ‘https’ in the URL). Check for customer reviews and ratings, and always read the return and exchange policies.

Dhanteras is not just about buying gold but about inviting prosperity, wealth, and well-being into our lives. By ensuring that we purchase genuine and high-quality gold, we can truly honour the spirit of the festival.
