New York, NY (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
Gold investment reporting tends to stick to exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and industrial gold demand, often leaving out the increasingly significant role gold coins and bars play in the gold market. SPDR Gold Shares frequently trump American Eagles when it comes time to report gold demand, but the physical gold investment sector has been growing annually since 2009, and it’s looking like the trend will continue this year. According to the US Mint, January 2013 was the sixth best month in the history of US American Eagle sales, outdoing the previous January by 52% with 435,000 ounces sold.
Arthur McGuire, Vice President of Gold Coin, says, “The increasing demand for physical gold bullion bars and coins is a clear sign that the bull run is still kicking. Report after report has news of ETF outflows and falling futures prices, as if those were the only sectors that mattered in the gold market. However, it is becoming more and more apparent that they are not. It’s just becoming more widely known among investors who want to buy gold for profit and wealth protection that physical gold bars and coins are the better way to go. They are tangible investments that are extremely liquid, and they’re also going for very low prices at the moment, which smart investors are taking advantage of before prices rise again.”
