As more new investors flock to precious metals every day, in episode 2 of our podcast Paul Atkinson discusses why investors are choosing to buy physical gold and silver bullion right now.

For thousands of years, gold and silver have been recognised as prize assets to own. This notion has not changed, even in this modern era, as we see more and more new investors flocking to precious metals every day. So, why are investors choosing to buy physical gold and silver bullion right now?

Those new to investing in gold and silver often ask us: ‘which is better, bars or coins? Listen to episode 1 of the Atkinsons Podcast as we discuss both bullion bars and coins, which may help you make an informed choice as to which could be more suitable for you when investing in precious metals.

In times of global political and financial uncertainty, investors traditionally turn to gold and silver to protect their wealth. This last year has seen people flock to precious metals like never before, with investors looking for the best way to make the biggest return on their investment and, with the end of the tax year looming, looking to avoid a hefty tax bill when selling their gold and silver. The best and easiest way to do this is to choose the tax-free option.

The coronavirus pandemic has rocked the globe over the past year, and financial markets have experienced much volatility. As the UK attempts to recover financially, we find ourselves asking: will this lead to a large rise in inflation? How could this affect the price of gold?

Figures from The Royal Mint recorded a huge increase in the sale of precious metals during 2020, with a notably large uptick in millennial customers buying gold bars and coins. Is gold now gaining mainstream appeal?

After rising to record-breaking highs during the summer of 2020, the price of gold has fallen steadily since it’s peak. The tail end of last week saw gold drop which prompted some heavy buying activity from investors looking to buy the dip.
