The Value of Gold
For centuries, gold has been a safeguard against financial instability. By purchasing gold as an asset, one is both storing wealth and investing it, and typically the buyer is rewarded over time. Inflation slowly decreases the value of money, while gold retains its value. Thus, the price of gold against the dollar rises over time. But inflation is not the only thing driving the price of gold.
As the saying goes, “An object is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.” In the case of gold, people all over the world still revere gold as a metal with intrinsic value, and thus it retains its value against paper currency. But its value also grows as peoples’ faith in it grows. And with a global pandemic, housing crises, and political turmoil, gold has become a logical choice for many.
A Most Useful Metal
Gold has many different uses in our economy. Gold ranks number one for malleability, which means it can be hammered easily into different shapes, thin sheets, or wire. Not only so, it does not tarnish. These two properties, when combined with its brightness, its luster, and yellow tint, make it perfect for use in coating or plating. Gold is used for making jewelry, coating flatware, making awards, and even putting plating on church steeples. With an enduring shine, items such as these retain their value for many years, and even centuries.
Of all the gold in the world, 78% is used for jewelry. In the United States, however:
- 50% is used for jewelry
- 37% is used in electronics
- 8% is used in minting official coins
- 5% is for other uses.
This breakdown does not include gold that is used for gold bullion. Gold is perfect for electronics, because it conducts electricity well and does not corrode. It’s also perfect for dental work, because it doesn’t react with other substances, and thus will not poison the user. Dentists have been using it for centuries for this reason.
Gold is often combined with glass to add a reflective quality; tiny particles added during the refining process enable it to reflect radiation. This effect can be used to keep buildings insulated, and make protective eyewear. It is also in aerospace engineering to provide an (albeit expensive) reflective coating to metal, which is often necessary to protect equipment from damage from excess radiation.
When to Sell
There has never been a better time to sell your gold. Although the price has seen a slight decline in recent months, this mild correction nonetheless locates it on a plateau above its entire history. But there is no telling how long it will stay high. Gold’s price has always been volatile, seeing changes from week-to-week, day-to-day, and hour-to-hour. With so many people coming out of the shadows to sell gold from their personal collections, there is reason to believe that it may drop again. Selling your gold right now ensures that you will get the best possible return, in the event that it falls in the future.
