    Hi,

    Which bars would you recommend (better quality overall, easy to spot fakes, less defect packages... etc.):

    Perth Mint vs PAMP Suisse?

    So far the PAMP Suisse that I've seen look rather pale, while Perth Mint bars have a darker yellow tone (or was it because of the lighting?) - I'm talking about Certicard bars only.

    Pamp has an app for your phone to verify bara in assay cards. Perth does not.

    Both are globally respected. However pamp has a tainted upstream supply chain aka buys conflict gold. Perth does not.

    I buy either as both are glovally liquid

    How about the color? Aren't PAMP bars lighter in color? One thing I've found weird, since all 999 gold should look exactly the same.

    Perth if you are in Australia
    Pamp if you are in Europe



    Edit
    Personally, I'd go for kilo coins if you don't mind the added premium.

    Whichever has the lowest premium, likely PM.
    Both are very liquid, although PM more so in Australia

    go with ABC or PM cast bars, safer than minted bars and not faked, both PM and Suisse brands have fakes made in mass production on their minted bars.
    People are very cautious buying those minted bars outside of a dealer.
    So cast is better IMO
