History of Gold

Gold has been valued as a global currency, a commodity, an investment and an object of beauty. Over the years, investors have looked to gold as a safe-haven investment to guard against financial and geopolitical risk. Gold investors have capitalized on the positive gains in the gold market as the 2007-09 financial crisis put this commodity back into the spotlight.
