Stick with stuff like the smaller bars from well known vendors.

There are 1g and 2.5g bars out there, too.

Expect to pay a significant premium for gram bars especially if they come with an assay card. This would include suisse, perth, igr, etc.

If you have the cash for a gram, save it until you can buy 5. If you can't wait that long, try to save up to at least 2.5.

Welcome to the world of collecting precious metals, one of the few hobbies more expensive than cards. :-)

With that said, it took me a while to learn that lesson and I have quite a few 1 gram IGRs I would part with. Generally I'll go a buck less than the best price you find on ebay.

Have you thought about fractional ounce gold coins instead of gram bars?

You can get 1/2, 1/4 and 1/10 ounce American gold eagles, Gold Maple Leafs go as small as 1/20 ounce. The premiums are higher for fractionals, but that also goes for when you sell them too.

Since I focus mainly on silver I can't buy large quantities of gold, but I find I can still afford the occasional 1/4 ounce gold Maple for a little diversity. For such small amounts I prefer official government minted coins, they are much easier to sell if the time ever comes.

Their isn't a crazy premium on 1 gram bars if you buy them from a source that doesn't do it to make a living or support a storefront.

I understand the premium may not be out of this world unfair, but I want to buy as a much as I can comfortably to eliminate as much as that premium as possible. ive set a solid budget. as the prices go right now I can/should be able to pull of 2 oz silver 1 g gold rotation every other week. ending each month with 4 oz silver 2g gold. the biggest issue right now is source.

It would be best to just buy a 2.5 gram or larger piece every month or so, you don't want to be paying such large premiums. Also, try to find a seller that doesn't charge sales tax, otherwise you are paying an additional 7-8% premium for no reason.
