Gold Bullion Investment as World Plunges into Recession


There is no denying that since the beginning of human evolution age, gold has been the most popular and most precious type of metal to be used as an investment. It has been the sanctuary for investors and collectors alike against crisis such as the economic or currency based. Quoting from a certain Karl Marx,

"Although gold and silver are not by nature money, money is by nature gold and silver",

there is truth behind that statement as physical gold asset actually has the power to convert characters and the buying power. To describe it further, during the Revolutionary War, a gentleman’s suit can be bought with just an ounce of gold.

The reason behind gold investment of most investors is because the value of the mineral is considered as global currency other than an object of beauty. It simply has more and lasting value than stocks, shares, bonds, and any other metals. The bad memory of the 2009 recession, also known as the Great Recession, has haunted the whole world. The effect spread the worst and caused global economic slowdown in the much industrialized world. The source of problem – reckless loan practices. Nevertheless, gold investment was not affected and has been proven as a recession-proof investment as it does not suffer from inflation.


Most investors adapt to investing in Gold Bullion or gold bars because the metal will always adapt well during financial and economic turmoil and it reacts positively when other commodities are on their decline. Gold bullion will be the most appealing alternative asset to have and the investors timed the economic dip as a great chance for them to buy more gold. According to records, the gold trend since 1900 until now has never failed the market as it only shows its bullish market. Although the recent recessions have made the trend to a bear market between 1999 and 2009, the overall trend of the gold still maintains its bullish state (source: http://pragcap.com/chart-of-the-day-dow-7000).

People who could yet understand the significance of investing in gold often ask this one particular question. What is the difference between investing in gold compared to investing in dollar? There are many pros when investing in gold that can be listed. The most relied fact about gold is that the mineral has been stable and rising steadily or bettered for the past 200 years. Even when the world economy is hit with another recession, there is no doubt that the gold will survive solely as it has the purchasing power compared to the US dollar.

Whereas investing in other types of investment especially in paper currency particularly the dollar, the dollar has a more volatile characteristic in trade. The dollar is more exposed to manipulation such as the politic turmoil, the crash of stock exchange, and even by natural disaster for example the Icelandic volcano eruption that caused ash cloud covering parts of the European continent. These sorts of manipulations or variables are only a few factors affecting the dollar and other currencies in the world as well.

The major points only illustrates that the gold market will be as bullish and stable in years to come, despite the U.S. dollar is experiencing new highs or lows. This scenario will keep repeating even for the next 100 years, in another recession or huge currency inflation, the value of pure gold invested by men will stay the same when you look at its purchasing power. Nonetheless, gold bullion is said to be the most stable, both in bars and coins unlike other types of precious metals. Furthermore, gold bullion can be transported easily. They can also be stored by collectors and hobbyists. Investing in gold bullion never seems so safe than ever before.
