So, I am no more a visionary than the next person, but I do believe the gold story, that over the LT is has always proved itself to be a hedge, that currently it's trading well below its historical correlation with money supply growth, and that everybody should have at least some gold for those dystopian times. Even those who aren't gold bugs would advise always having some gold if you can, and if you think you won't have to fall back on it short term.Thanks mate, I was thinking just the odd g here and there when I have a few quid lying around, not thousands.
Would you say that's not worth it? Reading above would suggest as much.
The premiums are so tasty on anything less than 1oz, you have to accept that it is indeed a LT investment. To compare, from Atkinsons, 1 oz Britannia at pixel time is 1398 whereas two half Brintannia's would cost you 1470.
That said, there's never a good time to time a market. A half Britannia will get you started, and then you can see how you feel about it from there. So, if you are happy about keeping it for at least 10 years, now's a good time as any.
Be warned though, one day you might find yourself counting through your gold like the man in his castle.
edit. As said, Atkinsons are value for 1oz Brits, Gold uk look cheaper for 1/2 Brits.
