Gold

Civilizations have equated gold with gods, wealth, and immortality. For centuries, gold has symbolized power and used as a storage of wealth. The fact that gold neither corrodes nor tarnishes not to mention the beauty of the precious metal made it suitable for deities and royalty in ancient civilizations. A gold standard was used as a monetary policy within and between nations but the world gold standard ended in 1976. The 1930’s was the last time gold was used in minted coins designated for circulation. Historically, the value of gold was based on perceived rarity and its distinctive color.

Almost half of the new gold consumed each year is for jewelry, 40% is for investments and 10% for industry purposes. The high malleability and conductivity of gold are characteristics that make gold used in many types of computerized devices. The precious metal is also used in tooth restoration, as an anti-inflammatory, and infrared shields.

Paper currencies have come and gone but gold remains in demand and has an inherent value. Gold bars, coins, and Investment Grade Coins are all popular ways to invest in the yellow metal.

Gold Bars

Gold bars are the most popular way to invest in gold and generally the form of gold bullion that most people think about. A gold bar can come in a variety of sizes from 1 gram to 1 kilo. Actually, a gold bar can be as big as someone’s imagination. Currently, the largest gold bar in history was produced by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation. The bar weighed 551 pounds and would be worth over $11 million with a spot price of $1275.

Investors prefer gold bars because they offer the most gold with a lower premium versus gold coins. Investors and collectors like gold coins and are willing to pay a higher premium due to the collectability of gold coins.

Gold Coins

Gold coins value is based on the weight of the precious metal and the scarcity of the coin itself. The scarcity arises from the fact that once a mintage of a coin is done for a specific year there will never be another coin of that year produced. Minted coins also offer the guarantee that comes from a reputable mint like the U.S. Mint. Gold coins are generally legal tender in the country that the coin was minted.

Investment Grade Coins

Investment Grade Coins are higher quality and more rare than bullion coins. These coins are also graded and are enclosed in a protective slab to ensure and preserve the condition of the coin. A study commissioned by the U.S. Congress has proven that certain Investment Grade Coins are shown to have an annual return of 15%. Investment Grade Coins are for investors planning to hold onto their investment for at least 3 years.
