Gold as an investment medium:
It is accepted world over that Gold is one of the most strongest , tenacious, and enduring type of investment medium. Buying paper money and investing in it is very risky because money depreciates in value while Gold appreciates in value.
It is accepted that Gold has its own difficult moments in history but on the other hand Gold has shown ability to recover substantially once there has been decline. The decline tends to be of temporal nature. Gold has a special place in the hearts and minds of humanity world over. One of the reasons why this is so is because Gold is admired all over the world. While a certain currency of country “A” may collapse like it had happened before , however the value of Gold in that country “A” remained of high value as Gold has ‘international taste’.
Gold has ability to preserve wealth in incredibly high levels. When the investors notice that their money is losing value they start to position and channel their focus in Gold mainly because of Gold’s ability to have consistently maintained its value, and actually appreciated in value.
