Gold Investor Series: Which brands can you trust when buying gold?

When buying gold how do you know which brands to trust? How can you ensure you don’t get short changed on weight or purity?

As a result, investors trust that any of the smaller bars produced by LBMA refineries will be of the stated weight and purity. A list of accredited refineries can be found on the LBMA’s website here.
