Gold investment is very much in the news today and to buy gold as an
investment is easy to do provided a few important factors are taken into
account.

charges which can also vary between dealers and mints.


Gold Bars, Krugerrands and sovereigns are perhaps the best buy with gold
bars having the lowest percentage premium over the spot gold price. When
comparing dealers and mints, compare the percentage over the premium and
look at what is the bottom line. What is the total you would have to pay from
each dealer for the same coin or bar delivered.

Buying regularly is another little secret to building up a healthy gold investment
portfolio. Even if it is only a small amount each month it is surprising how
quickly that small amount can become a substantial gold investment.

A good and thorough understanding of rare gold coins can also reap some
spectacular rewards. Scouring the auctions and coin clubs can net one a good
deal, particular if someone is in a tearing great rush to sell during a time of
economic turmoil.

It is often said that one should buy low and sell high. But for the serious
investor of gold who does not sell this is not the best way to go about it. In fact
to continue to buy on a regular basis is more likely to conserve ones gold
assets as the average price one pays for gold will even out over time.

If one wishes to trade in gold, then this is a different matter. It is more likely
that one would speculate in stocks in gold companies or exchange traded
funds and then different rules would likely apply. Such as, for example,
understanding the dynamics of the gold market and its relationship to inflation,
a bear or bull market in stocks, financial instability and so forth. Regular week
to week or even day to day trading is subject to more variables and market
forces and requires a different way of thinking, not for the novice or those of a
conservative inclination.

For the saver, rather than the speculator, coins and bars are a more
conservative way of saving and, when done on a regular basis, can reward the
investor with a very nice and healthy gold investment.
