Default Dome bolts

I need a bolt to hang large driveway gates to it's hinge. For neatness
does anyone know of a bolt that has a dome finish (or similar) both
front and back rather than an ugly standard nut on one side.

Couple of domed nuts along with a suitable length of studding?
Not sure where you'd get small numbers though, Screwfix seem to do them
in 100s

There are some bolts that may do you. They are used in metal fences to
join the sections together. They come in different diameters and
lengths, to the best of my estimation.

I first saw them, when some tarmac was laid at school. The boys from the
black stuff had tools that would grip the dome and let them un-screw it

The bolt is like a coach bolt and the nut has a hexagon on it to tighten
it up. The hexagon snaps off when the right torque is reached. The nut
then looks like a squatter shape of an electricity cooling tower.
