Gold stays forever. This is reflected in the value of gold as a safe investment. Gold is great. Industry also demands gold: the precious metal is part of the electronics, is needed in medical technology and cleans the exhaust gases in filters and protects the air we breathe from harmful emissions. The most popular form of gold investment is the purchase of bars. Seventy percent of the gold trade runs from mini bars weighing 0.5 grams to bars weighing one kilogram. Pure gold coins have the advantage of being smaller than bars. The gold reserve is easier to give away or split up more easily and offers further attractive advantages. The value of gold coins is measured not only by the pure material value, but also by the quality of the coinage, the historical background and the design and look of the coins. Important: Gold bars are only exempt from VAT from a purity level of 99.5 percent, for coins the purity must be at least 90 percent. Reading tip: FOCUS
