Have you heard people talk about physical, paper, and virtual gold and wondered what they are or which one is better suited for you? While the meaning of physical gold seems straightforward, it can often be confusing how gold can be virtual.
In light of the pandemic, another means of investing in gold has been getting a lot of traction: Digital Gold.
When buying physical gold, there are a number of aspects to consider. There might be concerns with determining gold legality, purity, and maybe even safekeeping.
When buying precious metals from Tavex, you can be sure that you receive ethically sourced, legitimate, and high-quality products – our partners are amongst the biggest gold manufacturers in the World – Perth Mint, Valcambi Suisse, PAMP, Austrian Mint (Münze Österreich), etc.
Digital Gold might seem like a convenient way to invest in gold, especially since many transactions have moved to the Internet. Digital gold can be bought online and is stored in insured vaults by the seller on behalf of the customer. Buying gold virtually can be more comfortable, and there is no need for safe storage because the seller already offers that.
Buying digital gold works quite similarly to digitally buying stocks or other assets. One needs to make an account with the bullion dealer and invest money in gold through them. However, it should be noted that digital gold comes with the counter-party risk(s) of the entity storing the gold. (bankruptcy, financial turmoil, etc.).
By owning physical gold, you are independent of third parties and institutions. There is also no need to worry about a possible transaction, as gold is traded freely and universally in the open market. Additionally, Precious metals can be sold back in all Tavex offices.
Owning gold on paper or digitally always comes with a third or even fourth party risk. However, physical gold you can feel and touch yourself, and you will always have it with you if necessary. Fundamentally the safest way to own gold is to own it physically by yourself.
