Our love of gold is as old as civilization. Flakes of gold have been found in Paleolithic caves last inhabited 40,000 years ago. The first empires of Egypt and the Fertile Crescent discovered how to mine and smelt gold to create pure forms. The goldsmiths of these early empires worked gold into beautiful jewelry and adornments that have stood the test of time. Even today, gold artifacts unearthed from thousands of years ago retain a stunning luster that continues to entrance people of all walks of life. King Tutankhamun's death mask, buried more than 3,000 years ago, remains so bright you'd scarcely believe its age.
Human societies around the world share an enduring love for gold, which has made it a symbol of wealth, and an excellent store of value, for thousands of years. Gold was once hoarded by emperors and pharaohs. For thousands of years, it served as the solid backing of the world's economies. Nations and empires staked their success and their ambition on a reliable store and supply of gold. Those who possessed it could literally (pay to) move mountains. Those without were left to toil for scraps.
Today, advances in mining, smelting, and other production techniques have made this original precious metal available to anyone. In a world of growing uncertainty and political turmoil, gold is needed now more than ever to potentially help hedge against currency devaluation, safeguard wealth, and protect your retirement security.
"Good as gold" is more than just a cliche. In a world where governments can print money at will, gold has become more than just an asset. While the dollars in your pocket gradually lose purchasing power over time, the real value of gold holds up well, and over time, it's actually grown dramatically:
$100 in cash saved in 2000 might still be worth $100 in 2020, but it can buy a lot less than it could in 2000. On the other hand, $100 of gold, purchased in 2000, would be worth over $650 in August 2020.
Historically, the United States Federal Reserve has been able to indirectly impact the price of gold through a combination of interest rate changes and encouraging the short-selling of gold futures contracts, which are typically exchanged as "paper gold" without the backing of physical precious metal.
However, this tactic works only when the world views the U.S. dollar as a global reserve currency, backed by a government that always pays its debts. In recent years, an explosion of U.S. government debt has pushed other nations away from dollars, leaving the Fed with fewer tools to manipulate gold prices. This has enabled gold prices to continue rising even as interest rates have remained historically low — the opposite of what happened in the 1970s and 1980s, when gold prices soared along with interest rates, only to fall as interest rates fell into the 1990s.

Many gold buyers operate under the belief that physical gold can (or should) only be held in easily accessible safe deposit boxes. While this is a viable way to own physical gold, it may not be the best way to maximize your upside from any gains in gold prices.
Political uncertainty is never far away, but most governments are incredibly durable. In less than 250 years, the United States has survived two wars against colonial oppressors (1776 and 1812), a civil war, two world wars, a multi-decade nuclear standoff against a rival superpower, and numerous devastating economic depressions. It may seem appealing to have your gold within arm’s reach, but adopting a tax-advantaged ownership strategy can confer greater rewards to patient buyers.
That's why many buyers consider holding their gold in a gold IRA or precious metals IRA. With a gold IRA, you can own physical gold, secured by a trusted custodian, and receive long-term tax benefits for retirement.

Rosland Capital offers physical gold in three primary forms:
Bullion bars are considered the bulk form of physical gold. This is the type of gold you'll commonly see traded on major markets. Most bullion bars available for public purchase are forged in one-ounce or ten-ounce sizes, although bars weighing up to 400 ounces (25 pounds) can also be obtained on occasion. Gold bullion bars are valued by weight, with their value equivalent to the price of gold per ounce, multiplied by the number of ounces of gold in the bar (if larger than one ounce).
Bullion coins are often minted to the same levels of purity as bullion bars. However, their value is set in two different ways. Gold bullion coins are commonly valued by weight, but since they're typically minted by national governments, they are also considered legal tender and bear a pre-set face value determined when minted. The metals value of a gold bullion coin will fluctuate based on the price of gold, but the face value of the coin will remain constant. You can use gold bullion coins to buy things in stores, but it's almost never a good idea, as the value of the gold used to create the coin is nearly always greater than the coin’s face value as a medium of exchange. Gold buyers typically only value bullion coins based on the weight of gold they contain.
Premium gold coins, including numismatic coins and collectible coins, are items whose value is set by multiple factors, including:
Rosland Capital has developed relationships with a number of world-class organizations like Formula 1®, the PGA TOUR, and the British Museum to bring interested buyers a wide range of exclusive specialty coins: beautiful, collectible, and valuable gold and silver coins.
