    kurgerands are the way to go, small enough deonomination that they can be liquidated on demand and recognised all over the world should you need to liquidate them away from the original place of purchase

    according to the experts 20% of your wealth should be held in gold

    Milan.

The draw back is you don't get any income from gold, no div's, no rent, no interest. However if you have some money and want to keep it for a rainy day, your bank accounts have reserves in them, then get some gold.....I know I have, and will continue to do so in the future.

      Me too.....I've got f**king piles of the stuff lying around at home.

          wealth is everything, property, shares, cash, the lot

          20% of the total should be gold

          I would imagine most in the UK are weighted more to the property side in terms of % of their wealth

          Milan.

                depends how interested you are in preserving your wealth for the future,

                if you have nout then of course it looks like nonsense, if you have something worth protecting then following a little research it will begin to make sense

                horses for courses eh, keep releasing that equity from your house, you'll be laughing

                Milan.

                  You don't have to buy gold.

                  Equities are basically inflation proof, and when interest rates (and inflation is low) you keep buying short term bonds that mature in a year and then rebuy, so at least you're protected against bond crashes.

                  Good investments at the moments are US company bonds (short term) there is a risk of default at the moment eg GM, Ford but the premium outweighs the risk.
