Why Invest in Gold?

" In the sea of financial assets and currencies that are being decimated the world over, the one true safe haven continues to be gold." - Eric Sprott, Markets at a Glance, October 2008

Gold bullion may assist in protecting a portfolio from currency devaluation and inflation. Gold has been used throughout human history as a store of monetary value, and as such enjoys investment demand for its monetary utility. Gold's unique qualities also make it considerably useful in a large number of industrial applications, thus making it one of the few monetary metals that also enjoy a commodity-driven demand profile.

Increasing instability in the U.S. dollar.
Limited physical supply.
Increasing investment demand for physical gold.
Gold's unique fundamentals.
