  • Gold is a very rare substance making up only ~3 parts per billion of the Earth’s outer layer (imagine 1 billion smarties in one place and only 3 of them were made of gold!)

  • Australia is the world’s second largest gold miner, producing approximately 321 tonnes (or $23 billion worth) of gold per year.

  • China is the largest, producing about 391 tonnes of gold per year.

  • The chemical symbol for gold is ‘Au’, from the Latin word aurum meaning “shining dawn” and from Aurora, the Roman goddess of the dawn.

  • In 50 B.C., Romans began issuing gold coins, which they called the Aureus.

  • Throughout history, gold has been seen as a special and valuable commodity.

  • Today, owning gold can act as a hedge against inflation and deflation alike, as well as a good portfolio diversifier.

  • As a global store of value, gold can also provide financial cover during geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainty.

  • When it comes to investing, the liquidity of an asset i.e. its ability to convert into cash without losing money against market price – is key.

  • As we know, the Fed went the way of printing more dollars…trillions upon trillions of them. It would seem we’ve made our choice and we’re setting the groundwork for a German-style depression in the future. When? I don’t know, but now is the time to prepare.

  • Australia Gold Market Capitalization accounted for 1,855.299 USD bn in Apr 2021, compared with a percentage of 1,756.024 USD bn in the previous month.

  • In 2020, 47% of global gold demand—the largest share—came from investors.

  • the average daily trading volume for gold ranks among the largest financial assets in the world. In 2017, it was almost $200 billion per day in over-the-counter transactions (e.g., in London market), futures, and ETFs. Hence, gold is heavily traded, much more than many sovereign debt markets. Only Japanese Government Bonds and U.S. Treasuries are more liquid.
