This time of year, with holiday gatherings and celebrations, many of our thoughts center on family.
Nothing in the lifetimes of many of our friends and clients and their families has matched this period for its financial instability. The year gone by has been one of serious inflation – rising to double-digit rates in many parts of the country including our own. The Fed’s attempts to bring inflation under control have been both too little and too late and the dollar and people’s savings and retirement plans have been badly diminished.
We may be witnessing the end of another fiat monetary system.
For wealth protection, from generation to generation, nothing endures like gold. In fact, someone called gold and silver “the superheroes of wealth preservation.”
Gold is one of the least reactive chemical elements; it does not tarnish or rust. It is handy to think of that as a metaphor for the fact that gold’s core value is impervious to corruption by the actions of its issuer. The value of an ounce of gold is not dependent on whose picture or name is inscribed on it. Nor does it depend on any government; governments come and go, but the value of gold persists.
If you had your choice of putting some government paper money in a box under the Christmas tree, or gold, to pass along to your children and grandchildren, you would be wise to choose gold.
Gold ownership has traditionally been prized as a means of passing wealth along in families, in discreet, private ways.
It is the only financial asset that is not someone else’s liability, not dependent on someone else’s promises.
Gold’s special virtues have been recognized around the world throughout the centuries. So honored is gold that the wise men who followed a star made it among their gifts to a child born in a stable more than 2,000 years ago.
So this time of year, while so many of our thoughts center on family, choose to protect your family and all that you’ve worked for. Find out why gold is the money of the ages, and why it makes a perfect gift for family members and loved ones.
Merry Christmas from all of us at Republic Monetary Exchange!
