Investment is defined by the Webster dictionary as the outlay of money usually for income or profit. Over a period of time the two basic trends that have prompted people to actually put away funds for investments are the following;

1. A fear of loss
2. An anticipation of gain

Gold has traditionally been the metal of choice both in the times of crisis and in the time of boon. In an uncertain and volatile environment precious metals have often provided a safety net of sorts to the investors. Gold has been also the metal of choice when it comes to people wanting to diversify their investment portfolio. The financial industry experts say that at least 3% of your investment portfolio should constitute precious metals like Gold and Silver. All through the history, Gold has been used as a currency equivalent in various civilizations and even today the gold reserves of a country decide how much currency can a country print. So the power and value of Gold have always been on the rise if you take a look at the long-term trending.

Gold also acts as a security against inflation, deflation, and currency devaluation. The anti-corrosive properties of Gold also make it a very valuable product. Gold Bullion Bars are the most traditional way of investing in Gold. Gold coins are also a very good way of owning gold.
