Our joy knew no bounds, we huzzaed, whooped and yelled at the prospect of being loaded with gold in a few months, and gave vent to any amount of hisses and groans for our apostate companions that were making all speed for home.

The initial discovery of placer gold, near where Denver one day would be, dated from June 1850, when a Cherokee party traveling to California panned some color near a small stream later known as Ralston’s Creek. As times worsened in the late 1850s, the siren promise of those few flakes of gold intensified—if they could […]


Auraria and Denver were rivals for two years, and then merged in April 1860. During that time, the news of gold in the Pike’s Peak country was still spreading like wildfire.

All this excitement resulted from perhaps $500 worth of gold having been found over the summer, most of it in the Cherry Creek region. That averaged out to less than $5 per person in the Russell party and even less if one figures in the Lawrence group, which had not found any gold. Their consolation […]

Gold Investment Ideas

Gold is a type of precious metal. This is a form of insurance and protection against inflation, global uncertainty as well as currency debasement. That being said, there are numerous ways how investors could lose their money with gold. Therefore, right before you consider buying this precious metal, it is highly advisable to keep yourself informed first.

Above everything else, there’s a golden rule when buying gold and that’s dollar cost averaging. This is putting fixed value of money into gold on a monthly basis no matter what the price. Now, for an average investor, doing such strategy can help in spreading risks over time and also, lessens downside. Majority of the financial managers are advocating anywhere from 3 to 10 percent in gold while bullish managers are suggesting to allocate as much as 20 percent in the said metal.

There are many types of gold options that you can invest on. You may use the money that you will get from but be sure that you’ll make the right investment.

Gold Bullion

Buy physical gold at different prices from bars, jewelry and coins. Some of the popular gold coins include but not limited to:

  • American Eagle
  • Gauden’s and;
  • American Buffalo

You may store gold in a bank safety deposit box or into your home. You may even buy and sell these metals at local jewelers while other companies let you keep gold with them and even trade metal. When buying gold bullion or coins, steer clear of high premiums.

Rather, you have to buy gold that’s close to the spot price or at least, 10 percent of premium. Basically, the higher the premium, the higher the price of gold will be. This translate to bigger profits of course.

Gold ETFs

ETFs are abbreviation for Exchange Trade Funds. This is a very popular way of acquiring gold in your investment portfolio without the challenge of storing the metal physically. You might want to do research of the respected physically backed exchange trade funds.

Gold ETNs

ETNs are Exchange-Traded Notes. These are debt instruments that are tracking index. What is done here is you give bank money for certain period of time and once it matured, the bank will pay you return as per the performance of what the ETN has been based on. If you have been investing in gold for quite some time, then you may consider taking this path as it is most likely used by those who have higher risk tolerance in gold investment.

Different Ways You Can Invest In Gold

Many investors think gold is gold, but it is really important to think carefully about how you want to invest in gold. Below are some examples.

Modern Ways To Invest In Gold

Invest in gold jewelry

Apart from real collectors’ pieces from well-known designers (and you have to understand that), this is not a good idea. Gold in jewelry is often of poor quality. Certainly, that cheap gold purchased on holiday abroad can be a real instinker due to the low gold content.

But also high carat gold jewelry always has the disadvantage that you paid for the gold AND making the jewelry. If you sell it, you just get the kilo price and nothing for making the jewelry back. Too bad ladies but we will not invest in that.

Invest in gold coins and bars

This is already a better choice despite the fact that the difference between buying and selling is still a bit large and therefore can never get in and out quickly.

But it can be a good idea for the longer term because the gold price can double or increase even further. Then you can certainly make a profit. Storing that stuff is a problem but renting a locker can solve that.

Invest in gold with an ETF

Now we look a little better at our goal of investing in gold. No storage problems just like with physical gold and smaller differences in buying and selling, which makes active trading possible.

I invest in gold with an ETF, but there is a better alternative to a rising gold price and that is below.

Why Invest In Gold?

Investing in gold is one of the oldest investments but still topical. There are investors who swear by gold, but there are also big opponents who should not know anything about it.

Investing In Gold

With all kinds of ghost stories, people always try to talk the investor into fear of not investing in gold. A fact can never be refuted. That is that over the centuries, gold has always been a good investment that could endure all misery.

It is also no coincidence that worldwide central banks always have heaps of gold bars in safes. We now also know that central banks are very good at controlling markets and therefore never let it happen that for whatever reason their gold reserves would not be worth anything anymore.

You cannot get a better guarantee than the support of central banks with an investment these days. Certainly if you know that they also have a lot of it. I will now discuss the reasons why you need gold and how.

Gold Investment – How To Invest In Gold?

As an inexperienced investor, when you think about investing in gold, you wonder what options there are. There are basically two options for investors if you want to invest money in gold:

  • Option: You buy real gold in the form of gold coins and/or gold bars.
  • Option: You make an indirect investment in gold. This can be done, for example, using gold stocks, gold EFs and gold certificates. With this type of investment, you can benefit from the gold price trend without having to buy and store real gold directly.

Investing in gold on the stock exchange: Investing in gold stocks

You can buy shares in gold mines or exploration companies (so-called explorers) and thus become shareholders.

If you are interested in gold stocks, it is better not to put the capital into individual stocks because of the high risk. Especially as a newcomer to the stock exchange. This speculative approach is rather for experienced and risk-conscious investors who can assess the respective risk-reward ratio well.

It is often unclear how much gold companies can find and mine in the gold mines or how high the costs are. Gold mine stocks therefore often crash sharply when the news is bad.

If you want to invest in gold stocks, you’d better buy gold index certificates. This spreads the risk across several stocks. For example, there is the HUI index, which is the most important gold mine index (also called the “Arca Gold Index”). As of January 2019, it contains a total of 15 gold shares.

Of course, the HUI usually benefits first of all from a rising gold price. This means that when the gold price rises, the HUI price usually rises (and vice versa). But there is also an increased risk here, because there may be strong price fluctuations (these have also been greater in recent years than with the gold price).

Gold as an investment with gold certificates and gold funds

This is another way of investing in gold. Gold certificates and listed gold funds or ETFs (definition), which replicate the performance of the gold price or the HUI index just mentioned, are particularly popular here. This means that if, for example, the price of gold increases by 2% in one day, the corresponding gold certificate (or gold ETF) also increases by 2%.

Various banks offer certificates and ETFs with different names. I do not want to give any names (otherwise I might get the impression that I recommend buying a certain financial product, which I definitely do not). But you can just google it or ask the bank or trusted broker.

Warning: In addition to the relatively harmless certificates just mentioned, there are also many other gold derivatives that are significantly more risky. Here you have to be careful as an investor! Be especially careful of leveraged derivatives (these are leveraged certificates, CFDs, warrants, etc.). Large losses can quickly accumulate with these financial instruments.

If you are interested, it is better to buy less risky derivatives with a simpler structure (i.e. some gold certificates that show the gold price development 1 to 1). With the mass of derivatives available, it is easy to lose track of things. Therefore, always read the conditions for the derivative and only invest in the financial products that you really understand.

With gold derivatives and ETFs, there is also a disadvantage that should not be left unmentioned: If the issuer becomes insolvent, the money invested is usually lost (even if this is rather unlikely with a well-known provider). You should always keep that in mind.

Tips when investing money in gold

Gold stocks, gold ETFs and gold certificates can be bought easily and cheaply through online brokers.

In addition to gold, silver is an interesting precious metal (although not as popular as gold). And of course, you can also invest money in silver. As with gold, there are, among other things, silver bars, silver coins, certificates and ETFs.
Beginners of stock exchanges and money investments should better keep their hands off the indirect investment in gold. This is more for investors with experience who have a short or medium-term investment horizon in view. On the other hand, it is worth considering the long-term investment of a small investment as protection against inflation in times of crisis.

IF you are interested in investing in gold, you can contact any licensed stockbroker to talk to you about your needs. You don’t need to have good credit so that you can start trading in gold. If you are thinking of taking out a loan like a no guarantor loan to invest in gold stocks, you may want to consider other options first. While gold is a nice investment, there are still risks involved. Invest smartly and only what you can afford to lose.
