Online Gold Investing Resources and Tools Note from Blifaloo: I became interested in gold after doing research for my rare and valuable coins & wheat penny values articles here on Blifaloo. I received tons (literally thousands) of coin appraisal requests from my website visitors asking about all sorts of coins’ values.
I am not a numanstic expert at all… and my interest in coins is just casual. But, for my readers I started doing more research and put together a guide to finding the value of coins. This led me to some interesting information about gold coins and bullion being a solid long-term investment. Very recently I did some freelance work for a company in the precious metals industry, and my brain is so full of information on gold investment and trading that I figure writing this article would be a good way to clear my head.
Intro to Gold as an Investment
People invest in gold for a variety of reasons. Historically, investors purchase gold to hedge (protect themselves) against economic turmoil, political crisis, and other problems that can devalue stocks, fiat money and other forms of investments.
If you are interested in using gold as a long-term investment, but have limited funds and no time to study the nitty gritty of the gold trade and financial mumbo-jumbo — purchasing gold coins and gold bullion is a great way
