So what's with gold these days? I have come to know that these days gold coins and even >bullion have been a great investment to date by investors all over the world. We all know that gold, even in the ancient times have been used in barter and trading as their form of money during those days. Owning gold in our possession is already a good investment because we can either keep it and sell it in the future. Others can keep it as part of their collection and it's their way of preserving their wealth.Right now, I will not wonder anymore why some investors are hoarding or keeping these precious metals in thier possession.
