For This Website
both basic, timeless information about gold, and an update
on prices, news and thoughts about gold and money in
the old sense of the word: gold and silver, hard currency,
cold cash, hard money, 'specie', treasure, or fortune.
We believe in a simple
way to achieve a simple task: to convert some of your
assets into gold in its most tradable, recognizable forms
at the lowest transaction cost.
Our goal is very straightforward:
to provide a low cost method of acquiring a balanced
portfolio of gold.
We are here to remind
you of gold's role as a store of value, as the only permanent
store of value that has survived the past few millennia
OnlyGold.com is about
an element, a metal that does not tarnish or corrode,
that can be buried in the ground for thousands of years
undimmed, or immersed in saltwater for hundreds of years
unscathed, the one element that stands out on the ocean
floor amidst the debris, tarnished and rusted, of an
old shipwreck: the unconquerable gold which shines as
brightly as the day it was minted into coin, or crafted
OnlyGold.com is here to
foster recognition of the heritage and tradition of that
enduring store of wealth known as gold. In every country,
gold is the stuff of legends and is synonymous with treasure.
It is the tomb of King Tut, the treasure of Troy, King
Solomon's mines, the Nazi hoard at the bottom of some
deep Alpine lake, the Lost Dutchman Mine, the Golden
Fleece, the sunken galleon, the subject of every treasure
map and at the end of every rainbow. In every place and
culture gold was and is wealth itself.
There is something timeless
about our primal response to gold - we like it, want
to touch it, and find it easily fabricated into beautiful
things. Even as basic and unassuming a form as a well-executed
gold coin reflects light beautifully over its design
and seems to glow.
Why own gold? Because
it's private money, permanent insurance, and a family
heritage. Because it lasts as nothing else does. And
because a person of means without gold is taking an imprudent
risk entrusting all his or her wealth to outside institutions.
