Why invest in physical gold

Paper gold or physical gold: what are the differences?

Investing in gold means bullion and coins. But the gold supply is actually wider. There are two types of gold investments: physical gold and paper gold.


Physical gold represents the most palpable precious metal; Paper gold refers to the purchase of the same metal in the form of exchange traded contracts.


In theory, the two investments are close to each other, as paper gold replicates the performance of physical gold. However, when it comes to safe haven and you are not familiar with the stock market, it is best to turn to physical gold, as paper gold carries some risks, particularly those related to the issuer of the financial product, which can , for example, going bankrupt.

How much do you earn by investing in gold?

Central banks build gold reserves, but the real economy also requires ever-increasing quantities of gold for industry, commerce, crafts and technology. Gold is also a basis for many financial products, such asETFs or ETCs.

As a result, gold is not only a highly profitable asset but is also considered a safe haven for investors.

To give some examples ofprofitability:


If you had invested in gold 5 years ago, you would have earned over 50%

If you had invested in gold 20 years ago, you would have earned over 500%
