Certified Gold As An Investment Option Posted by James Randolph on February 09, 2010
February 9, 2010 – In an era filled with uncertainties, certified gold should be one of the safest ways to protect your gold holdings. As reports circulate of gold bars with tungsten cores, investors want to know that when they buy gold, they will receive gold. Reputable gold exchanges represent one of the best investment options to make that happen.
Robert Prechter of the Market Oracle website stated on November 12, 2009, “…subsequently, 640,000 of these tungsten blanks received their gold plating and were shipped to Fort Knox and remain there to this day. I know folks who have copies of the original shipping docs with dates and exact weights of tungsten bars shipped to Fort Knox.” While he does not provide the evidence on his website, it raises the question of how an investor can be protected from purchasing and receiving counterfeit gold.
The answer to that question is to buy certified gold from a reputable exchange. The best exchanges should not only have an impeccable rating with the Better Business Bureau, they should have a long history of providing gold that meets the specifications that they advertise. An exchange should also provide independent experts to absolutely assure the authenticity of your certified gold purchase.
Whether buying rare coins, or new gold bullion bars and coins, an investor should be able to rely on the integrity of the gold exchange to help ensure the quality of the product purchased. This confidence is important and makes certified gold an important investment option.
