All about Gold

Gold, the shiny yellow metal, has been prized for thousands of years. Highly malleable and resistant to tarnish, it is a favorite element for jewelry, coins and other forms of art.

In addition to its beauty and rarity giving it great aesthetic appeal, gold has also industrial uses, due to its chemical properties such as excellent conductivity and resistance to corrosion.

Gold has symbolized wealth and power since its discovery by the ancient Egyptians around 2450 B.C., making it an excellent choice for a currency or a monetary system standard.

To this day, gold remains a popular investment, offering a potent hedge against inflation and times of economic uncertainty.
