Benefits of Gold Bullion
Gold bullion is popular in modern investment portfolios because it typically has low to negative correlation with stocks and bonds, thereby enabling investors to diversify their risk profile. Investors also buy gold bullion as a hedge against inflation and as a "currency of last resort" during times of political or economic instability. Central banks throughout the world buy gold for their sovereign reserves to protect against the fluctuating values of currencies like the dollar and the euro.
Buying Gold Bullion
Gold bullions coins are the most popular way to own gold. We recommend modern gold coins like U.S. Gold Eagles over gold bars and ingots because they’re far easier to sell, store, and transport.

Gold is Wealth
Gold has been a primary medium of wealth almost since the dawn of civilization, and for good reason. Gold is intrinsically rare and cannot be artificially produced or reproduced. Gold's color and luster are strikingly beautiful and will not tarnish or oxidize like other metals. And gold is malleable into almost any shape or form for coinage, jewelry, decoration, or sculpture. For these reasons and others, gold has been recognized through history as universal money with inherent value, unlike fiat paper currencies that depend for their value on the promises of governments. While governments have come and gone, gold remains.
