Gold and Other Precious Metals

What are the different ways to invest in gold?

The most popular way to invest in gold is through purchasing gold jewelry. Other ways include: purchasing gold coins, bullion or bars, buying stocks in companies that extract gold, selling gold jewelry, or buying mutual funds that invest in precious metals, including gold. Investors may also buy exchange-traded gold funds that may represent a certain holding or portfolio of gold purchases. They may also purchase gold certificates that are issued by some banks, representing a certain quantity of gold held by the bank.
