Physical Bullion

Sometime bullion is called physical bullion in order to emphasize that one means bullion - real, tangible asset, instead of its paper counterpart (like CFD for gold or silver). In contrast to CFDs, options or futures, physical bullion products are tangible and can be traded as well as smelted into bars or coins.
