Gold Coins

First and foremost, what makes a precious metal is its rarity.  Rarer than silver or copper, two other metals mined since antiquity, its value was proportionately larger. Second, gold has fantastic properties. It does not tarnish, it’s very easy to work, can be drawn into wire, hammered into thin sheets, it alloys with many other metals, can be melted and cast into highly detailed shapes, has a wonderful colour and a brilliant lustre.
All of these properties could be harnessed since ancient times, like today, just by heating gold nuggets at high temperatures and using simple tools like hammers or moulds.
In short, gold is very memorable, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that its main use is in jewellery.
Since time immemorial the noble metal’s resplendent lustre allows it to be designed into the world’s most coveted and exquisite jewellery — fit for queens or kings. Today, most of the gold that is newly mined or recycled is used in the manufacture of jewellery. About 78% of the gold that’s available, as opposed to stored, each year is used for this purpose.
