Gold has been used as money for thousands of years. Our ancestors viewed it as universal and most reliable store of value compared to other commodities. Some civilizations considered it as metal derived from the gods.

Gold is an effective hedge during crises when the masses lose faith in politicians and governments. In a crisis, people want to protect their life savings through proven stores of value like gold and silver.

In the Old Testament, King Solomon (one of the wealthiest men in history) advised investors to allocate one-seventh or one-eighth of their personal fortune in the shiny metal. The purpose of 1/7 or 1/8 gold allocation was to create a diversified portfolio that can withstand feasts and famines. (The effectiveness of this “Solomon portfolio” as an all-weather fund has been verified by research at Brigham Young University.)
