What’s Up With Gold? [NZ Mint]

Gold; it’s been capturing the interest of both investor and journalist alike; perhaps it’s even caught your attention on occasion.

Last year, gold in US Dollars, climbed to numerous record breaking highs, central banks became net buyers of gold after 21 years as net sellers; and the World Bank President Robert Zoellick even suggested the G20 members consider returning to a gold standard.

Newsworthiness aside, why the growing interest in gold? Gold’s rising investment demand has been attributed to the current global economic uncertainty, with investors seeking a safe haven from risk and inflation. On the home front, as a nation who understands the benefit of a physical asset it could be gold’s tangibility that has growing appeal.

This may all be old news to you if gold has already piqued your interest. What you may be more interested in knowing is who in New Zealand you can buy gold from, and what the process involves.
