Where to buy real physical gold bars in Malaysia? Most of our banks such as Public Bank, Maybank, CIMB and more offer Gold Savings Account, it is not the same as buying up gold bars. Gold Savings Account also known as GSA, is known as paper gold as there is no guarantee or backing from real physical gold.
This is why some investors only invest in real physical gold bars. In the event of a collapse of the US dollar, your paper gold will vanish too, unlike physical gold which will be worth even more. I doubt the US dollar will collapse in the near future, they will debase it but no country in the world will want it to collapse. Why? Almost every country holds US dollar reserves, if the US dollar collapses, so does their own country.
As for fake gold bars, it is always important to buy from reputable distributors. I highly recommend UOB because they are a bank, in the event the gold bar is fake, which is unlikely, you can rest assured they will immediately compensate you. After all, the price for a gold bar is more or less the same, the only problem with UOB’s gold bar is it comes in 1kg only.

UOB Malaysia is probably the only bank in Malaysia that sells gold bars, not even Maybank sells gold bars, however, Maybank does sell gold bullion, which is not what investors want as these bullions are priced somewhat higher than average based on weight. Gold bars are available only in 1kg at the following branch.
