This neat thing is an investment opportunity. One thing that holds it’s value is gold, and unlike stocks, which can fall dramatically, and wipe out your savings, the precious metal tends to grow in value slowly and steadily. You don’t need a small fortune to get started investing, either. You can buy gold coins in various denominations, so you can spend what you can afford, and sell later and re-invest. Whether you are interested in collecting the coins as a hobby, or solely for their monetary value, it’s easy to get started. Remember, coins have a currency value. If there isn’t a marked currency value, then what you have is classified as an ingot.
