Gold is one of the rarest materials on earth so it’s no wonder gold bullion coins are so popular with investors across the globe. Gold coins are one of the longest standing forms of currency and have been around for hundreds of years.
Unlike bars, coins have a fabled history – each of the series is linked with an interesting backstory that arouses the interest of collectors. These historic connotations makes them a valuable investment choice.
Like other precious metals, such as silver, gold coins also hold their value against inflation and unpredictable stock market crashes. When an economic crisis hits, those who have invested in the stock market suffer financial losses, but gold owners don’t have this risk because gold is a hard asset that won’t vanish.
Because of its staying power, gold is considered a safe option by investors looking to protect themselves against financial turmoil. Moreover, it can be passed down through the generations because it maintains its value and has the potential to offer healthy returns over the long term.
Gold can either be traded in bars or bullion coins. Bullion gold coins are usually more expensive because they are considered more valuable. This is due to their heritage, mintage and the fact many have previously been used as currency and become novelty items because they are no longer in circulation.
Numerous gold bullions coins have been created to mark special one-off events too, such as the 50 oz Krugerrand, making them even more precious. Gold coins have high liquidity and re-sale value if they are kept in good condition.
The price of gold largely depends on supply and demand. Unlike paper money, gold has limited availability and demand outweighs supply, making it a highly sought-after metal that maintains its value through financial hardship. Now used in medical devices and electronics manufacturing as well as investment and jewellery, there’s no sign of the demand for gold slowing down.
Its ever-increasing popularity is one of the main reasons why it is more expensive than other materials. A safe investment in tough economic times, gold typically increases in price when the economy is suffering and falls when the economy is in a stable position.
