For thousands of years, physical gold has been a store of value and the ultimate form of wealth preservation. Physical gold is valuable because it is difficult and costly to mine and process and is therefore scarce and in limited supply. Physical gold is also tangible, it cannot be created or debased and is difficult to counterfeit. And since gold is not issued by any government, central bank or commercial entity, it has no counterparty risk or default risk.
When stored in your own home or with a third party secure vault storage provider, your gold is stored outside the banking system and is ringfenced from the financial repression risks of the banking system.
Some view holding gold as a form of savings outside the fiat currency system. Others see holding gold as a form of investment for exposure to the gold price. In either case, the optimal and most convenient way to hold physical gold is in the form of well recognized brands of investment grade gold bars and gold coins.
