An Overview of Gold Investing and Prices (Updated 2022)

An Overview of Gold Investing and Prices (Updated 2022)

Gold is the best-known and most popular precious metal, and it’s not hard to see why.

Beyond being a key material for jewelry, investors around the world buy gold as a store of wealth, and many believe it’s superior to paper currency. Storing wealth with a sense of stability is a popular reason for investing in gold.

Over the last decade, the gold price has seen both peaks and troughs. It rose as high as around US$1,790 per ounce in late 2012, but took a steep dive midway through 2013, slipping to about US$1,220. The gold price remained between US$1,100 and US$1,300 from 2014 to early 2019. In H2 2019, a softer US dollar, geopolitical issues and a slowdown in economic growth pushed gold above US$1,500 that year.
