Gold as a crisis-proof investment
For 4000 years, precious metals (gold and silver) in the form of coins and bars have served as a means of exchange and payment. In all that time, they have not suffered any loss of material value or significance. Modern gold coins and gold bars are stamped with the properties weight in grams, fineness and the manufacturer. However, a nominal value is not mentioned, as is usual for gold co ins and silver coins. Today, gold bars made of fine gold serve as a financial investment that can be easily traded. Above all, they are regarded as a crisis-proof store of value.
