Why Invest with The Royal Mint?

Last Updated March 2023

Category: Invest

 

There are many reasons to consider investing in gold, silver or platinum bullion, one of the most powerful being that precious metals have a proven ability to hold their value over time. This tends to be the case where market conditions lead other securities and investments to perform poorly.

Here we explore the benefits of the three leading precious metals, and why many investors choose to buy and sell bullion with The Royal Mint.

The Benefits of Gold

Gold has been used throughout history as a means of currency – or as a means to back up a national currency in the case of the gold standard. Gold’s unique properties and rarity have led to it being highly prized throughout history. Gold is a popular means of investment with a thriving secondary market, has traditionally acted as a hedge against inflation and is a common choice for investors who want to diversify their assets.

 

The Benefits of Silver

In terms of safe-haven investments, the price of silver tends to act in the same way as gold, although at a lower price point. Silver can therefore provide a good introduction to growing and diversifying a portfolio.

 

The Benefits of Platinum

Platinum is 30 times rarer than gold, and this scarcity and the demand for platinum in the manufacturing industry in particular can make it an attractive investment option. Platinum can add diversification into a portfolio and is favoured by some investors due to its lower price per ounce than gold.
