Gold bullion is real, honest money...and, many say, the best form of money the world has ever known. It is a store of value and a safe haven in times of crisis. Gold is rare, durable and does not wear out in the manner of lesser metals (or paper!) when passed from hand to hand. A small amount, easily carried, can purchase a significant amount of goods and services. It is universally accepted, and can be easily bought and sold around the world.
Not all gold products are IRA eligible for inclusion in precious metal retirement accounts. Please look for the ✔IRA APPROVED checkmark on the product page for the product that you are interested in purchasing. If the checkmark is not present on the page, that product is not eligible for inclusion in precious metal retirement accounts. If you have any questions regarding setting up or buying gold for your account please contact our staff at 1-800-294-8732.

But this gold standard did not last forever. During the 1900s, there were several key events that eventually led to the transition of gold out of the monetary system. In 1913, the Federal Reserve was created and started issuing promissory notes (the present day version of our paper money) that could be redeemed in gold on demand. The Gold Reserve Act of 1934 gave the U.S. government title to all the gold coins in circulation and put an end to the minting of any new gold coins. In short, this act began establishing the idea that gold or gold coins were no longer necessary in serving as money. The U.S. abandoned the gold standard in 1971 when its currency ceased to be backed by gold.
Borrowing money (also known as buying on margin) to make a bigger investment in gold is a risky game. Say, for example, you invest $4,000 and then leverage your investment five-to-one, so that you control $20,000 worth of gold coins or bars in an account set up by a dealer or brokerage firm. To start, the price of gold is volatile, and if the price dips far enough (below the minimum margin requirement), you’ll have to kick in more money to keep your account, or you’ll have to sell some or all of your investment. Also, the salesman’s commission is based on the total amount of the purchase. So he’ll get, say, 5% of the $20,000, or $1,000. Although 5% is a fair commission, it’s 25% of your $4,000 equity stake. On top of that, you’re paying interest on the money borrowed.
You may hear gold bars being measured with the term "troy ounces." This term is meant specifically to measure the weights of precious metals like gold. A troy ounce is about 10 percent heavier than a normal ounce and is not used today outside of measuring precious metals and gem stones. The price of gold fluctuates with the market, and as a result, prices of gold bars will fluctuate as well. Even though the U.S. doesn't adhere to the gold standard anymore, the price of gold is something that a lot of Americans still like to keep a close eye on, as many see it as an indicator of our current economic times. Keen investors tend to keep an eye on the price-per-troy-ounce of gold and invest accordingly.

Gold bars and ingots are the most popular way to invest in gold and generally the form of gold bullion that most people think about. A gold bar can come in a variety of sizes from 1 gram to 1 kilo. Actually, a gold bar can be as big as someone’s imagination. Currently, the largest gold bar in history was produced by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation. The bar weighed 551 pounds and would be worth over $11 million with a spot price of $1275.


Options on futures are an alternative to buying a futures contract outright. These give the owner of the option the right to buy the futures contract within a certain time frame, at a preset price. One benefit of an option is that it both leverages your original investment and limits losses to the price paid. A futures contract bought on margin can require more capital than originally invested if losses mount quickly. Unlike with a futures investment, which is based on the current value of gold, the downside to an option is that the investor must pay a premium to the underlying value of the gold to own the option. Because of the volatile nature of futures and options, they may be unsuitable for many investors. Even so, futures remain the cheapest (commissions + interest expense) way to buy or sell gold when investing large sums.

Gold bars are often the least expensive form of bullion and are perfect for large purchases. They’re often easier to store and ship. 1-ounce coins are probably one of the most common and instantly recognized forms of gold. Coins allow investors to buy batches of gold in smaller increments (though there are also 1-ounce bars). Coins can sometimes be more convenient to liquidate, since you can sell off your gold savings one ounce at a time, rather than finding a buyer for a large bar of gold.
The price of gold fluctuates constantly in the markets. This can make pricing somewhat challenging for many dealers. But we’ve created a program that updates the prices of our products in real time in accordance with the spot price of gold at the time of purchase. We also have a price match guarantee to match the advertised price of any of our products on the sites of our top competitors.
That big run-up during the early 2000s — which silver shared — is still helping precious metals salespeople paint dreams of lustrous gains. The Lear Capital TV ad, for example, says that, “if silver just returns to half of its all-time high, it would be a 60% increase.” Fair enough. But if it sagged to around twice its recent low, you would suffer a very painful 50% loss.
Avoid buying proof coins if you are using gold as an investment. Proof coins are commemorative coins that usually come in a special case and are finely polished to look more attractive than normal coins. While these coins have a higher value for collectors, their monetary value is not guaranteed to stick around in the long-term, making them a poor choice for investors.

Although governments have decided it's easier to be off the gold standard than on it, that doesn't change the central issue that backs gold's intrinsic value and safe-haven status: There's only so much gold in the world. The gold that's above ground being used in some fashion is estimated to be around 190,000 metric tons. The amount of gold in the ground that can be economically mined today is notably less, at roughly 54,000 metric tons.    

If you buy gold for the right reason – as a long-term savings vehicle – then you want to buy the best-known bullion products for the lowest possible prices. Fortunately, the best-known products are usually the best-priced options. They are relatively common and their value is determined by their weight, not erstwhile values like rareness or collectibility.

Though expected inflation is still low, a near-doubling is significant when compounded over 10 years. Nevertheless, gold has only barely held its own over this 2+ year period; the annualized gain of the SPDR Gold Trust GLD, -0.39%   since February 2016 is 2.7%, for example. Over that same period, the SPDR S&P 500 Trust SPY, -0.55%   has produced a 23.8% annualized gain.
Conservative investors who typically shy away from this sector are attracted to KGC for its relative financial stability. Since the gold market collapsed back in 2013, Kinross has focused on chipping away at its long-term debt. In addition, management cut any excess fat that was holding back the organization. The result? KGC returned to profitability last year.
Good delivery bars that are held within the London bullion market (LBMA) system each have a verifiable chain of custody, beginning with the refiner and assayer, and continuing through storage in LBMA recognized vaults. Bars within the LBMA system can be bought and sold easily. If a bar is removed from the vaults and stored outside of the chain of integrity, for example stored at home or in a private vault, it will have to be re-assayed before it can be returned to the LBMA chain. This process is described under the LBMA's "Good Delivery Rules".[39]

Buy physical gold at various prices: coins, bars and jewelry. Some of the most popular gold coins are American Buffalo, American Eagle and St. Gauden's. You can store gold in bank safety deposit boxes or in your home. You can also buy and sell gold at your local jewelers. Other companies like Kitco.com allow you to store gold with them as well as trade the metal.
How exactly does gold get from the ground to the point where you can hold it in your hand? Although panning for gold -- swirling muddy water from streams around in a pan in the hopes of finding gold flakes -- was a common practice during the California Gold Rush, nowadays the precious metal is generally mined from the ground. While gold can be found by itself, it's far more common to find it with other metals, including silver and copper. Thus, a miner may actually produce gold as a by-product of its other mining efforts, or be focused exclusively on gold but produce copper and silver as by-products.

While I don’t begrudge the equities sector enjoying its resilient bull market, the underperformance in gold stocks doesn’t quite jibe. Primarily, the U.S. dollar index has cratered ever since President Donald Trump took office. Since the start of his administration, the dollar index has dropped roughly 5% in value. The losses would have been much worse were it not for a recent walk up.
