The value of physical gold – is gold an investment?

The real money, a hallmark of stability

Gold and other precious metals are not currencies like euros or dollars. They are the true money that has been used for trading for thousands of years now, and there are some obvious reasons why. Unlike fiat money that has an unavoidable tendency to devaluate, precious metals don’t lose their value in the long run, even during times of economic downturn. 

Therefore, many central banks around the world use gold as a way of storing and preserving their funds. Now, all Paysera clients can also do it in a fast and convenient way – by trading precious metals online. 

However, gold should not be considered an investment. Its purpose is not to generate income, but to preserve the wealth that one already possesses. This is the main reason why gold is so popular during times of crisis and uncertainty.

What can you do with precious metals?

Buy

All Paysera clients can buy gold online. Any currency available in the Paysera system can now be converted to gold. Since not everyone can afford to buy a whole physical coin or bar at once, purchasing it in smaller parts might be a solution for some people! The value of the amount of precious metal that you have purchased will be displayed in your Paysera account both in weight and your chosen currency.

However, heavier bars are cheaper to produce, therefore they are cheaper by weight.

Sell

Just like any other currency in Paysera, you can sell gold back to Paysera at any time within the app or the online banking.

Transfer

You can also transfer precious metals to other Paysera account holders.

Although you can’t pay for products and services using these metals yet, they can be automatically converted to your currency if you don’t have enough money.

Pick-up

Physical gold coins and bars are issued at the Paysera HQ in Vilnius. Delivery of the physical metal is also available. Bear in mind that if you purchase gold and don’t pick it up within two working days, an automatic storage fee will be applied. When taking out the physical gold, XAU is deducted from your precious metals account.

Is it safe to buy gold online?

Gold trading, just like other services provided by Paysera, is protected by the highest level of security. This service falls under the law on state supervision of precious metals and gems. Also, Paysera is included into the Lithuanian Assay Office list of companies that are trading precious metals - this too obliges sellers to uphold transparency and impeccable service quality.

Overall, buying gold online is just as secure as using e-banking. When buying or selling gold, Paysera guarantees a secure login process and a safe-to-use online system.
