Costco's Booming Gold Sales

It is no secret that Costco has debuted selling physical gold bars starting in September of 2023, headed by its initiative to give consumers more products at a wholesale price. According to the Costco chief financial officer, Costco has created over $200m+ of gold sales, most typically sold are 1-ounce gold bars and coinage by renowned manufacturers such as Pamp Suisse, the United States Mint, and the Royal Canadian Mint. All mint coinage sold is packaged in exclusive packing made exclusively for Costco, which mimics assay cards for their bar counterparts. The catch? You have to be one of their warehouse club members as typical for buying on Costco, but you can gain an extra 2% with their credit cards.

What Products Does Costco Offer?

Costco offers a small range of high-volume, liquid products in their first offering to the public. Here is a list of some of the known available branded products and where to find them at Costco online:

Note: In-store visitors have found products such as the Royal Canadian Mint 10 oz Silver Bars, being limited to just 5 per customer.

Most items have an account limit, so if you are looking to purchase more items you must make more accounts or find family members or friends that can help out!

How much does Costco Gold cost?

Costco gold prices range depending on the product and the varying premiums associated with that brand and specific coin, but generally, they restock the items at 2-3% above the spot price for the 1 oz Gold Bars and Coins. For higher premium products such as the Silver coinage, and the 25x1g MultiGram products, they can range from 8-15% above spot price.

Is this a good deal to buy? Yes, it could depending on your investment thesis, or if you have the Costco Exclusive membership setup, which can get you up to 2% Cashback, on top of potential rewards such as Citi's 2% High Volume Cashback program, netting out to about 4% returns before actually selling the gold.

Do Costco's gold bars sell out quickly? Yes, they sell out very quickly with most orders being placed within the first 5-10 minutes of the items restocking on Costco's website.
