Even when the foreign stock market suffers, i.e., the American dollar performs poorly, precious metals still provide a high return. Considering the immersion or volatile stock market conditions, you begin to understand why big-time investors like to have a balanced portfolio between stocks and precious metals.

Between 1998 to 2008, the dollar struggled against other currencies, which led to the tripling of gold prices. A recent example would be the fall in oil prices. The sink of oil prices pushed the global market into turmoil in late 2015 and early 2016. Hence, gold prices rose sharply during the period.

Significance of Gold

Gold has always played a significant role in human society, and it has always been valued for its beauty, diversity, and availability. It was also true thousands of years ago when gold was used to create ornaments. It is also true now when gold acts as a commodity in many industries. Gold is rare, and it takes a lot of time, money, and effort to mine, even if it has advanced mining techniques.

In addition, gold holds its value longer than anything else. So do silver, platinum, and palladium. Silver is easy to mine as it is also abundant. 

Reasons to Invest in Gold

Numismatic Premiums

Like scarce comic books and novels, there are high-quality and low-cost coins. These coins are expensive. In fact, in some cases, you can pay more than 1,000% on the internal price. However, in most cases, the value of these pieces will increase regardless of the value of the precious metal. If a coin or a series of coins is archeologically renowned, the market value can shoot up. It is the case with most of the scarce coins produced by New Zealand Mint in conjunction with Perth Mint.

Amazing Premiums

Bullion coins usually have high montage and do not change from year to year, but there are exceptions. Many of the coins produced by Perth Mint change shape year after year. It means that even if they are bought at a close price per year, they can still carry large amounts of money in the years to come. That was the case with most of their first releases in the Lunar series.

Sales and Demand 

Most of the gold mined is turned into bullion and sold to investors. In the past, banks have increased the sales of their gold reserves. Since the global economic downturn in 2008, these banks are now willing to acquire them. Apart from that, mining production has also declined. Thus the economy has arrived at a situation where demand is much stronger than supply. The storage created in the gold market pushes the prices up, validating the investment in gold.

Therefore, we can conclude that investment in precious metals can be considered one of the best options.
