Gold Investment recommends that small private investors that choose to invest in gold through the acquisition of physical gold, should do so by buying and storing gold bullion coins. Gold bullion coins remain the most convenient, the most popular and safest way to physically invest in gold in South Africa and elsewhere in the world.

Potential investors need to take into account, that although gold bullion coins trade close to the world gold price, it is never 100% the same. The reason for this, is because you can expect to pay a premium above the current world gold price when you buy, and vice versa, the day you decide to sell. It is also advisable to take the collector’s value into consideration when buying/selling gold bullion coins.
