Answer

Great question! Here are a few reasons: Gold offers protection against inflation, gold is a stable investment in times of crises, the demand for gold is higher than the supply, you can actually barter or trade with it, financial advisors suggest you have at least 10% of your portfolio in gold, and gold bars are considered global cash. Therefore, gold is security for and your family!When I take the cost of an ounce of gold and divide it by 32 (the number of grams in an ounce of gold), the result is a lot less than the actual price for a gram of gold. Why is that?

I’m confused about the price of a gram of gold vs an ounce of gold.

Answer

As with most things, the larger the amount of goods you purchase at a time, the less you pay per individual portion.
For example, let’s say you purchase a gallon of milk at the price of $2.99.  If you divide that by 4 (there are 4 quarts in a gallon) the cost for a quart of milk would be $.75, but the actual cost for a quart of milk at the same store at the same time is $1.35.  You can see in this example, when buying in a larger quantity, the cost per quart is much lower.
Another example, an 8 oz. cup of coffee at Starbucks costs $1.45 (.18 per ounce) and if you buy a 20 oz. cup, it costs $2.25 (.11 per ounce).  Again, the larger the quantity, the cost per ounce is much lower.
The same principle applies to gold.
Remember, make sure you are comparing apples to apples when looking at prices, not all gold is the same

Why would people buy gold by the gram rather than by the ounce?

Answer

Because it is affordable to “the masses”!  Many people just don’t have $1300 or more to buy an ounce of gold, but they understand the value of having gold.
So they’ve wisely decided to purchase an amount they can afford – smaller amounts but more often!
Many have stated they are “building wealth with gold, one gram at a time”!

Is my gold insured?

Mouse here for answer

Answer

Both 999.9 and 24K are methods to measure the purity of the gold.
To get technical, the 999.9 percent of purity uses what’s called the “Millesimal fineness” of an alloy.  So if gold is 999.9, it is 999.9 percent pure gold.
The gold content of alloys is also measured in carats (k).  Pure gold is designated as 24K.
Because 24K and 999.9 gold contain such high quantities of pure gold, they are too soft to be used in jewelry. They are often combined with other metals to create an alloy for jewelry making. Generally, the purer the gold, the lower the amount of other metals found in the alloy. So only 24K and 999.9 gold can legally be called “pure gold.”

What is the difference between saving cash or saving gold?

Mouse here for answer

Answer

The real question is:  would you rather save your wealth in Dollars or Gold? If you answered Gold, you’d be correct.  Consider this:
If you bought $100 worth of goods and services in 2003… you would need $128 to buy the same goods and services in 2014. That means if you saved that $100 in a bank in 2003, in 2014 it would be worth less than $100.
However, a gram of Gold in 2003 was priced around $8, today a gram of gold is around $65. So if you were to have saved $100 in Gold rather than dollars, you would have increased your wealth.
