For many investors, the option to buy gold as an investment over other commodities has always been a safe option as it is an asset with intrinsic value, as well as a hedge against economic and political crisis. And given the finite supply, the rare metal looks to only increase in value over time which makes it a wise investment choice for many.
There are two main options when buying gold – bars and coins. Coins contain a set weight of gold, with Sovereign coins weighing 7.322 g with 0.2354 troy ounces gold content, while Krugerrands are 33.93g with exactly 1 troy ounce gold content. Gold bars range from 5g to 1 kilo, are all pure gold and a better choice for investors looking to buy gold in bulk, but have limited flexibility.
Although silver does not carry the same value by weight as gold, it is still a good investment option as it is more speculative. The greater volatility of silver prices means it can be a worthwhile asset to buy low and sell high.
Note that silver is charged a 20% VAT, so it worth considering as a long term investment to cover the cost of the value added tax before selling.
