Gold and Gold Coins as Investments

Gold and other precious metals have been well-known to mankind since ancient times. The first gold coins were minted in the 7th century BC by the kings of Lydia. Gradually gold and precious metals became the basic medium of payment. Gold coins were minted in ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, and later in the British Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, France and other countries.

In modern society, gold can be a stable investment, a collectible, a beautiful gift or a piece of jewelry.
