    Costco, typically known for offering bulk essentials like toilet paper and coffee, has ventured into gold sales, attracting both investors and survivalists.

    The company announced this week that it's selling 1-ounce gold bars, with such high demand that they're quickly running out, even with a two-bar limit per member. They offer two options: a 1-ounce PAMP Suisse Lady Fortuna Veriscan bar, featuring the goddess of fortune design, and a 1-ounce bar from South Africa's Rand Refinery, marked with an elephant.

    Both bars measure approximately half an inch. The PAMP Suisse bar is registered, accompanied by a digital certificate accessible via a QR code, while the Rand bars have individual serial numbers.
