Gold has been prized and valued for all its glory since the days of ancient Egypt and revered through the ages since. Although gold can been traced back as far back as 40,000 BC it was the Ancient Egyptians from 3,000 BC who gave gold its status. It became of significant importance to the Pharaohs and priests who requisitioned gold maps, a gold mine and the capstones on the Pyramids of Giza to be made of gold. The ancient civilization, the Kingdom of Lydia in western Turkey also used gold as a currency.
For the ancient Greeks, the Aztecs and other civilisations across the world, gold was seen as a symbol of power and wealth. Some cultures have believed that gold represented the sun.
The Gold Rush in the USA and Australia in the 1800’s played a major role in building these countries into the affluent nations they are today.
Gold continues to be seen as smart investment; it is regarded as a safe commodity. In spite of Geopolitical tensions gold prices continue to be stable. Experts believe that this trend will continue.
