Most customers when looking to BUY Gold, ANY gold, usually deal with RETAIL.  All they typically see or know to compare is price. 

Some retail companies may give them a special discount for a purchase.  But it's still retail without other financial rewards.  When the deal is done, IT'S ALL DONE.

And without knowing all the features and benefits included in KARATBARS, they may jump to conclusions.  They don't know.  For many, it may not be that important to them.  But for those who want the facts will get them.

WHY?  Because they have NEVER been exposed to anything like this before.  KARATBARS is a Category-Creator.  NO one is doing what Karatbars is doing globally.

So LOGICALLY, without some explanation, someone may ASSUME that Karatbars is in some kind of "BAKE SALE" and simply include it with other "gold" companies.  It's LOGICAL...But INVALID.

So, why should one NOT look at only price to make an accurate, informed complete comparison?

Karatbars has the lowest price for their gold category.  Compare BMW to BMW, not Ford to BMW.  Google: kinebar grade 1 gram gold . 

But before we get into all the reasons why owning a 1-gram Karatbar makes far more sense in this economy than owning a 1-ounce bar-even though the same amount of gold may be lower in price-lets compare prices of several 1-gram bars:

Prices For KARATBARS | Apples to Apples

kb kinebar gold bullion


When you're thinking about the price of KARATBARS gold bullion and you somehow come to the conclusion that the prices are too high, you haven't compared apples to apples.  It's like this:  A Chevy Cavalier is a car just like a Corvette is a car.  Bottom line is they're both cars.  But the fact is one costs more, is worth more, and retains its value better. Gold coins, bars, and ingots are all gold, but with varying purity and weights.


Comparing Prices With KARATBARS Gold Bullion

The first thing in comparing prices of ANY commodity is understanding that you must do an apples-to-apples comparison. For example, if you are going to buy a pint of milk you must compare the price with other single pints of milk.

What you DON'T do is find the best price for a GALLON of milk (which, for the sake of discussion, lets say is $4) and then divide $4 by 8 pints (which is 50 cents per pint), and then compare that price to buying a single pint. We all understand what it means to buy in bulk. As with any product, there is what is commonly called volume discounts. The reason bulk prices are less per ounce is very simple: there is more labor cost to produce several units verses one unit, but the flexibility of use benefits are significant with 1-gram gold over larger weights.

To get an accurate price comparison (not taking into consideration the MANY benefits that come with owning a flexible transaction-friendly 1-gram Karatbar), you cannot take the spot price for an ounce of gold and divide it by 31.1. (There are roughly 31.1 grams per troy ounce of gold.)  And you cannot take a gram price and multiply it by 31.1. You must price Karatbars gold bullion by the gram against other similar-quality gold that's sold by the gram to make an accurate comparison.

Is The Price of KARATBARS Gold Bullion In Line With What's Out There?

With gold and silver, you pay more for smaller weights regardless of your source. Just like you pay more for 1 can of soda or beer than you would pay for a case of 24 cans. The more you buy, the better price you get.

If you want to be accurate and compare apples to apples, ask your broker what his/her price is for a 999.9-grade 1-gram 
gold bullion produced by an LBMA-certified refinery? No one can touch Karatbars price!  Karatbars has consistently maintained a 2-4% better price. Even if a broker could match or beat Karatbars prices, will they give you free gold for referring others?!?  I think not.  And all require you to buy many 1-gram bars even if you only want to buy one and although they may advertise they can deliver, they are often out of stock or cannot actually deliver gold in one gram weights.

Check the prices and compare 
for similar quality and same currency:

Swiss PAMP Gold Bar Weight 1 gram

UBS Gold (Kinebar) Weight 1 gram


kb goldKARATBARS Weight 1 gram (After 100 grams - 3% less)

KB's program is NOT for traders. It is for savers and many ask "what does it cost"? This is a poverty mentality because a wealthy mentality asks "what is it worth"!

As of mid-February, 2012, when $1(USD) exchanges for 1.32 Euro, the price of a 1-gram Karatbar is approximately $78.  It's not what it costs; it's what the market says it's worth.  Cost and worth are two different things, much like an acre of land on the U.S west coast in Malibu is worth more than an acre of land in Iowa.  Karatbars is "prime real estate":  It costs less than comparable 1-gram gold bullion bars of this quality; it resells for more ; and it holds its value out of the vault.

This short video about coins versus 1-gram Karatbars- -explains a LOT.


KARATBARS are private issue  (produced by a private refinery and mint and exclusive to Karatbars) 999.9% 24-carat Gold Bullion... NON-seizable under the current International Bullion Laws and U.S. Law.  

Gold coins that have minted and issued from any government can be recalled to issuer (the govenment).  All gold from aratbars is privately issued and CANNOT be confiscated by any so-called authority.
  • Karatbars gold is Private Issue bullion, 999.9% Fine Gold, each Karatbar weighs in at 1.01 grams

ANY and ALL gold purchases and gold coin purchases  that are done in USA are RECORDED.  The U.S. government knows exactly who has what.  Most coins are PURE gold on the ALLOY Standard - 91.9% - because 24-carat is too soft.  You do not actually OWN any government-issued coins; you are merely THE BEARER of the coins.  Governments in financial duress can "recall".gold coins and only pay bearer FACE VALUE only.  Ask yourself this: "Where do you think the U.S. government is going get the gold to restock THEIR shelves?"

Karatbars ingots weigh in at 1.01 grams, above the legal limit if a country tries to exercise a VAT Tax on 1-gram bars.  We have a niche market of transaction-friendly weights which make it a viable form of payment and exchange, under ALL economic circumstances, in ALL countries.

Karatbars accounts are private and SECURE, more so than the FDIC, CDIC, or ANY gold sales in the USA or Canada.

100% of all funds you deposit into your Karatbars account are used to buy gold bullion.  There are no extra fees.

Karatbars does not report any Customer transactions under $10,000 to any government agency in any country.  And Karatbars does NOT ask for a Social Security Number (SSN) or Social Insurance Number (SIN).  Your identity is kept cinfidential for your account as long as you are NOT charges and convicted with money-laundering, involved in drug trafficking, or other international crimes under the U.S. Patriot Act.

All transactions are ledgered by username and account number.  When verified by German authority auditors, you only need to verify your account number, deposit, and whether the deposit was transferred into physical gold and transferred to the vault or shipped to you, the Customer.  Germany is possiblythe toughest country in the European environment in which to do business.

Karatbars International is an offshore(Germany) e-commerce company with an optional Affilliate Marketing program.  Karatbars International is NOT governed by the USA.  It is on the same level of trade existence that theU.S. government uses when dealing with any other country. 

We merely have our ownpersonal Karatbars accounts, and we can refer others to get their own private Karatbars account.  We do not sell financial paper instruments, nor does Karatbars.  Affiliates do not sell gold; Karatbars does, OFFSHORE.  SOME licensed gold resellers do resell Karatbars.  Only Karabars account holders can make referrals, and we are rewarded for referring others.  New Account holders can geta Karatbars account only by being referred bya Karatbars Affiliate account holder.

Although we resemble a leveraged typeof marketing structure, we are NOT considered MLM inany country.  Karatbars is an e-commerce Affiliate business model.  Our Compensation Plan pays out only when paper money is exchanged into gold money.  That's it.  There are  NO enrollment fees, etc.



Karatbars in1-gram weights have many more benefits than gold in 1-ounce weights.  They are both gold, but it's like comparing an apple to a rock!  You CANNOT compare by price.  The features and benefits are simply too far apart.



The majority of those who look at gold will ALWAYS start by comparing price, thinking the only reason to own gold would be as an investment.  It is not.  They do not understand that one ounceof gold is one asset class, and one gram of gold is a totally differentasset class, even though they are both gold. Even though they are both gold, the benefits of owning a gram of gold compared to owning an ounce of gold are significant.  Karatbars is about owning 1-gram gold bullion ingots that you could use as a form of exchange, much like you use paper money and credit/debit cards.  It would be much more difficult doing that with larger weights of gold and certainly not with a 1-ounce gold coin.  Following are things to consider when buying gold:



Gold can and is being counterfeited.  In order to know the gold is not fake, one must sell that gold to a gold dealer who has the tools to confirm it is pure.  With Karatbars, ANY merchant who is taught what to look for with the naked eye can quickly and easily determine that it is not fake because every Karatbars has:

  • The stamp of the London Bullion Market Association(LBMA) Atasay Refinery on the gold.
  • The signature of the Atasay Refinery's Assayer on the card.
  • An embossed serial number that is unique to that particularKaratbar.
  • The Refinery's unique hologram covering the entire back of the gold.

You want to own1-gram Karatbars so that your gold does not need to be sold and converted back to paper money in order to get some future use out of them.



Withal weights of gold there is a buy-back price that's less than the sell price.  With Karatbars there are MANY more options available than simply selling them back.

  • Use them to buy goods and services from the many Merchants who accept them as payment.
  • Post them in the Karatbars Member Marketplace at or near the Karatbars daily posted retail price.
  • List them in any of the many Karatbars Affiliate chat rooms to sell at or near the current retail price.
  • Sell back to Karatbars at a higher price than you would get from any gold dealer.

Only Karatbars allows one to find a way to get at or near the current day's retail value when ready to dispose of some.



If you own an ounce of gold, and need only a few hundred dollars, you will need to sell the whole ounce.  If you have high inflation, you will want to leave as muchas possible in gold.  The inconvenience of finding a dealer willing to give you a fair price without having to stand in line etc., is something to consider as well.  Karatbars (1-grams) eliminate the need to convert to cash or use more than is required at that time.  You cannot chip off a piece from an ounce and expect anyone to give you just that amount in paper cash or goods and services.



Karatbars bring gold to the masses.  Almost everyone can afford to buy $65 at a time. 



Anyone, without ANY fees or costs, is able to introduce others to Karatbars and earn a commission.  Yes, you can buy 100 grams of gold or an ounce if you choose.  But why not, with very little effort, introduce others and have your gold bought with commissions earned?




Karatbars Gold has ALL the bells and whistles on it in its standard feature.
Produced by an LBMA-certified "good delivery" refinery.  See (Click on "Good Delivery " tab / Gold List.  Scroll down to Turkey.  Click "Atasay..."), Karatbars are
good for "settlement of debt" worldwide.  Do not take the LBMA-certification lightly:  It takes 3 years of zero issues for a refinery to get LBMA-certified. Our Karatbars cannot be counterfieted, and are verifiable by obvious and instant inspection.

Free storage abroad, in various geographis locations.

Low-cost shipping (about $20 for 40 grams) if you want your Karatbars delivered to you.  Or you can have them moved to your own vault for an additional fee of approximately 2/10ths of a Euro per gram.  Our company subsidizes the portion of the shipping cost that ensures the shipment reaches the Customer's designated destination.

One insurance is through SecurLog, as they record on video every single packaging for delivery and the actual card numbers, etc. sealed. And SecurLog has their own private insurance company.  Plus, SecurLog has their own on-site Insurance.  They are recognized by the World Gold Council, one of the largest in thegold industry.  Once your Karatbars leave the company's hands, they are double-insured by both Karatbars and SecurLog.  They are shipped via FedEx.  Large deliveries are done by G4S, the largest global armored delivery company in the world.

The extremely high affiliate marketing internal payout (14.5% on the 100 gram Purchase Plans) allows Karatbars International to prepare for infrastructure labor and expansion.  On one-time purchases, payout is 5.5%.

We have "Green Gold:  Karatbars Green Technology Extraction Process uses NO mercury or cyanide.  This makes them a serious TACTICAL PLAYER for gold production globally. 

We are recommended by Bund de Sparer, a German independent consumer watchdog organization:

All Purchase Plan Agreements (agree to buy 100 grams over an open-ended timeframe)-have a 4-stage process.  There are no chargebacks.  And there is even a buy-back for any purchase plan cancellations.

Karatbars are stored in vaults, not in circulation or around circulation like a savings deposit vault of a regular bank.  They are NOT held as collateral for something else like a prime funding venture or anything like that.  If for some reason you cannot fully trust an offshore account then get your Karatbars delivered directly as a one-time purchase, right now.


Gold deposits are stored in large bars until ready to be minted into card denominations of your choice (0.5 gram, 1 gm, 2.5 gm, 5 gm ingot cards.  Until Karatbars has expanded to every country we can possibly in , we only offer 1-gram ingot cards.

To exchange into gold is one thing; to exchange out of gold is another.  Karatbars is the simple, no-nonsense, worldwide solution to a full-presence answer toboth types of exchanges. 

Karatbars offers a multi-faceted EXIT strategy unlike any other gold source.

KaratbarsInternational willbuy back your Karatbars with the guaranteed best buy-back price.

You can sell to other Karatbars Customers or Affiliates.  (I sold 19 grams for $1290, that day's sell price, for a Customer who wanted part of his 10 grams, and I did it all in 1 day.)

Use Karatbars to buy goods and services within the Acceptance Points Network (merchants)  Soon, we will be able to exchange fractions of a gram online, not using the cards.

Other major financial institutions see us a reliable financial partner; for example, The Vatican bought and branded 100 kilograms of our gold and branded it with our Karatbars. NO ONE can doubt that the Vatican is a major financial giant worldwide.  The Vatican doesn't get involved with hokey companies at all.  Period.

We have made many presentations and expectto produce more Affinity Cards like the Pope cards.  Football Teams, Hip-Hop artists, several churches, an Airline ,and more are considering a private labelled Karatbar for themselves.  We are just getting started.

Remember:  EARNING FREE GOLD is better than buying it at ANY discount.
