There Are Two Reasons To Invest In Gold And Silver:
1) Preserve Your Purchasing Power
2) Optimise & Diversify Your Investments
Accumulate Gold and Silver to Preserve Your Purchasing Power
Purchasing power represents the amount of goods and services you can buy with a currency. You should aim to preserve your purchasing power to ensure that the currency you are working hard to earn today is still valuable in the future when you want to spend it. The key to preserve your purchasing power is two-fold:
You should hold currency that retains its value over long period of time.
You should hold currency that is appreciating relative to most, if not all other currencies in both the short and medium-term.
Historically, buying gold and silver has been an excellent way of preserving purchasing power over long period of time. Today it takes almost the same amount of gold or silver to buy a barrel of crude oil as it did 50 years ago. This is in stark contrast to national currencies (also called fiat currencies), like the US dollar, the values of which strongly erode over time. Central banks and governments have set a long-term trend of currency debasement, and it is unlikely that this trend will be reversed anytime soon.
Gold and silver are the only globally recognised currencies that cannot be created out of thin air, which makes both of them great stores of value (preservers of purchasing power) in the long-term. Unlike fiat currencies that can easily be debased, gold and silver remain the ultimate forms of money.
How Do Gold and Silver Preserve and Increase Your Purchasing Power?
If you would have invested $10,000 on 1 January 2000, your purchasing power would have slightly decreased on 1 July 2011. If you would have invested the same $10,000 in gold or silver, your purchasing power would have more than tripled. See the chart below.

How Much Should I Buy?
Gold and silver are excellent means to preserve your purchasing power but choosing how much gold and silver to buy should be your personal decision. It is a widely acknowledged investment principle that you should hold between 10-25% of your assets in precious metals. Research has shown that wealthy individuals keep around 10% of their wealth in precious metals as a diversifier and hedge against crisis events.
Isn't The Gold Price Too High To Buy?
Nobody can predict the future, but there is a strong case for the continued appreciation of the gold price (and other precious metals) in terms of US dollars, Euros and most of other major world currencies. Compared to historical records, the gold price still has room to increase further. Adjusting for inflation, the current gold price is far from breaking the record gold price of $2,079 per ounce in 1980.
However, the price is not the key aspect to consider when purchasing gold, as first and foremost gold investments are made to act as your insurance against financial uncertainties and currency debasement.
