Sterling fell as low as €1.1954 against the Euro as well as reaching an eight week low of $1.5957 against the US dollar.
Analysts have said the drop is due to concerns over Britain’s AAA credit rating and the calming of the Eurozone debt crisis. Another contributing factor could be the uncertainty over the UK’s future in the EU.
Investment in gold is a popular option for many during times of weaker currency, as the precious metal tends to hold it’s value.
A spokesperson for Physical Gold said:
“With the pound deprecating and the continuing threat of inflation, many savers may experience interest and saving rate lows – with their returns low or even negative. Gold investment is worth considering for savers during these uncertain economic times as it provides a more reliable store of wealth. Bank savings are not the safeguard they once were.”
Physical Gold is continuing to monitor these latest developments with interest.
