Hongkong Bank Gold Tael Bars
We show a gold tael bar issued by the "Hongkong Bank", which we believe is the same as the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation, nowadays better known in the UK as HSBC Bank.
The tael is an ancient Chinese unit of weight. Unfortunately, like many old weight systems, the weight of the tael was not absolutely standard, but varied slightly from one place to another, but it can be generally reckoned as about 37.5 grams, 1.2 troy ounces, or 1.3333 avoirdupois ounces.
Gold Tael Bars
Gold tael bars are known to have been made in denominations of 1/2, 1, 2, 5, and 10 taels, but many other multiples and fractions were almost certain to have been made.
This is th first and only example of the one tael bar pictured.
This bars has its weight shown as 37.427 grams, and to be 999.9 parts per thousand fine gold.
We will not attempt to read or translate the Chinese symbols on the reverse, but we assume they repeat the information shown in English on the front of the bar.
Gold Bars for Collectors
Mostly the gold bars we sell are intended purely as an investment in gold, and we do not guarantee to supply any specific make of bar, however we get many requests for specific makes or styles of bar for gifts or collectors, and so we try to provide these as an extra service. Naturally we charge extra for supplying specific designs and makes of gold bar. If you wish to buy gold bars at the lowest bullion prices, please see our main Gold Bars For Sale page.
