1) I believe the opportunity cost for using our CPF savings to buy gold is rather high. I will not give up the risk free returns to speculate on gold.
2) I buy gold bullions from UOB. The Kilobar is probably the most value for money, weight for weight. However, it isn't practicable for most of us and not very practical. My choice is the 1 oz bullion.
3) Bullion coins of same weight from different mints can differ in prices but UOB sell them at the same price. It doesn't matter coins or bars. If we are buying as an insurance, it is sensible to simply go for best value.
