Why Save Gold?
The wealthy save gold to protect their assets.
Most of the world population has never had the resources to save real gold bullion. Historically, it has been a privilege reserved only for the wealthy, and make no mistake, wealthy people, central banks and governments save gold. Gold is security.
Extraordinarily, in North America, we’re not really taught financial literacy in school, how the banking systems work or how to secure our assets, if we’re lucky enough to have accumulated any! If you are just now learning about gold and financial systems, don’t feel bad, that’s not unusual.
Gold has a store of value and it cannot be printed.
Gold has an amazing history of over 5,000 years. Since ancient times, gold has been an important raw material, a recurring base of currency and trade. It has been exchanged as currency for thousands of years and it has a proven store of value. Paper currencies do not. Inflation degrades traditional savings accounts by reducing the purchasing power of paper currency.
“You can’t hack gold, digitally delete or erase gold and you can’t infect it with a computer virus…Gold’s resilience in times of turmoil has been proven time and time again.” – James Rickards, Author of the New Case for Gold and founder of the James Rickards Project
How do you buy gold?
Less than 1% of the world owns gold. While it’s relatively easy to purchase stock in gold mines, there are some difficulties with accumulating physical gold.
- It’s heavy – one gold bar is 12.4 kilograms (about 27 pounds)
- It is not easy to store or to ship & it’s expensive to purchase – one gold bar would be worth about 1/2 million US dollars
- Bullion dealers don’t offer quantities smaller than one ounce
- One ounce of gold is still expensive, about $1300 US dollars
