In addition to its inherent decorative and aesthetic qualities, gold has been appreciated as a standard of value for well over 3000 years. The warm glow of the precious metal has always been a source of inspiration for humankind, from the beginning of its career in jewelry or weapons to its use as a means of payment in the form of coins. The fascination with this resource remains unperturbed to this day: Gold is timeless and in demand.
The precious metal is unique in having defied all financial crises. Gold cannot be reproduced at will, in contrast to cash or stock shares. Gold is a finite natural resource that is immune to inflationary financial politics, and it will increase in value over time because of its limited availability.
There is also a high demand for gold on the part of various industries. Over the past years the use of this precious metal, alongside others such as silver or palladium, has been on the rise in the electronic, automobile, space and medical industries.Due to its historical significance and its impressive usefulness, gold remains a safe option for sustainable and long-term capital investment.

As mentioned above, experts predict a strong rise in the price of gold and in other precious metals.All natural resources are finite, as is gold. Experts predict that natural sources for silver, for instance, will be exhausted within 30 years.But the demand will remain, which in turn will favorably influence the gold and silver price. Both precious metals are therefore a solid financial anchor in times of political or financial turmoil and of rising inflation. Especially gold in its physical form is a highly stable commodity and can never completely lose its value, which is why gold is considered a most suitable asset for retirement planning.
In Germany, a profitable sale by a private investor is exempt from the dividend tax after a lock-up period of one year, which is another reason for currently investing in precious metals. Furthermore Gold and Silver can be acquired anonymously up to a value of 15.000 €.
Acquiring gold and silver coins is no longer solely advantageous for collectors. Throughout the past years private investors have increasingly discovered the coined form of precious metals as a productive investment and a solid retirement arrangement. Only in its physical form, gold provides a safe protection against inflation. The amount to be invested can easily be increased by acquiring coins, while gold bars are commonly used to secure large property assets.
When purchasing gold, its purity level is of primary interest, but coins are also valued according to their public profile. Coins such as the Krugerrand, with a purity of 916,16, or the Canadian Maple Leaf, with a purity of 999,99, are two examples of popular coins amongst investors and are widely circulated. The South African Krugerrand is also the oldest golden investment coin in the world and gives it added value and importance. The coins are traded in different sizes and price categories depending on the current rate of gold.
Gold and silver bars are the older and more traditional form of the precious metal trade. Their worth is solely derived by the weight and purity of the bar.As opposed to coins, the brand and design have no influence on the price.
Trading of gold bars begins at the minimum weight of 100 grams. Anything below that is being traded as sheet metal up to an absolute minimum weight of 1 gram. Kinebar represent a special variety of gold bars, with an additional security seal of authenticity on the bottom.This hologram is known as a Kinegram and raises the value of the gold bar.
Current trading prices for gold and other precious metals are subject to fluctuations and are arrived at by the supply and the demand of the popular marketplaces for natural resources.This daily price, combined with the merchant premium, is the basis for the trading price. Merchants add their costs for distribution, storage, marketing, and insurance to the price.
CoinInvest, however, dispenses with a large storage stock and acquires gold bars and coins without intermediaries directly from the leading producers and coin mints, which in turn affects the pricing favorably. Products can be acquired online, and availability can be checked by the customer via phone or email at all times. The merchandise will be shipped to the customer within 24 hours of receipt of payment.
But not every investor limits his or her portfolio to gold alone. Compared to the relative stable gold market, silver is more strongly influenced by economic fluctuations. But this resource, too, will continuously gain in value in the future, given its indispensability for the mobile and computer markets.
The less frequently traded precious metal palladium is of interest for long term investors. Palladium is a critical resource in Nano-technology industries, and it is largely unaffected by speculative trading. With, for example, a more moderate price than platinum and its grey color, this precious metal has found its permanent place in the jewelry and automobile industries. Its usefulness in many industrial areas which explains why the rising price of palladium is closely coupled with the economic success of gold and silver.
Platinum is a profitable precious metal for investors with economic cyclical foresight. It is an essential resource in one of the key industries, the automobile industry.With the growing success of the automobile industry, the market gain of platinum also rises and thereby ensures a stable value. Platinum is the rarest of all known precious metals, even though it has only been discovered 250 years ago. Gold is being mined close to 30 times more compared to Platinum, but with less purity.The purity of platinum is about 96%, compared to the purity of high-quality gold with just about 75%. Even with its comparably recent history and a mining volume of about only 130 tons per year, platinum is a key resource in modern science as well as in many key industries. The platinum price even has the potential of surpassing the price of gold in times of economic boom since its price development has deviated positively from the price of gold.
