A beginner's guide to gold

Gold has long been considered a global currency serving as a common language of exchange between countries. Today, this shiny metal continues to play a very central role around the world. As a store of value, a hedge against inflation and deflation, or as a diversification tool for investors, gold has established itself as a multifaceted financial asset.

Key takeaways

The purchase price of a gold product is actually composed of two elements: the price of the metal and the premium.

Upon resale, most countries apply a form of tax on gold, generally known as capital gains tax.
