The value of gold

Gold 79AU

From the Latin aurum – though called by different names throughout history, the allure of gold is here to stay.

Gold plays an increasingly diverse role in modern economies, ranging from aesthetic and cultural to practical and industrial applications. Humans, since ancient times, have been captivated by its rarity and beauty and is still as coveted as a symbol of wealth and prestige. Often referred to as the King of Metals, gold is incredibly rare, with all the gold ever mined throughout history estimated to fit into just three Olympic-sized swimming pools. Its exceptional conductivity makes gold a crucial component in advanced electronics and space exploration, and its beauty, durability and versatility have made it an essential element in jewellery, and its demand continues to grow. Gold’s significance remains unmatched in the world of minerals.
