Why Invest?

There are a multitude of different economic reasons to invest in gold, silver or platinum bullion. The most powerful, though, is that precious metals have an amazing ability to hold their value over time, especially in market conditions when other securities and investments prove to be less than completely inflation-proof.

Even if the relative value of your currency of choice changes, gold, silver and platinum have an absolute value. Their price may fluctuate, but the amount of goods or services an ounce of each will buy has stayed remarkably steady over time, in boom or bust, through recession or expansion. This is why so many currencies over the centuries have been either minted from these precious metals, or been based on the amount of bullion actually held in that country’s vaults.
