The value of money keeps decreasing
The unstable situation in the world, political confrontations and unemployment affect the economies of countries and the standard of living of the population. People have repeatedly victims of bursting banks and bankrupt enterprises; their wallets were full of worthless banknotes after markets broke down under the strain and collapsed.
Any currency depreciates over time, financial systems are being destroyed.
In times of crises, gold retains its value. Over the last decade, the cost of precious metal has increased by 300%: gold prices have risen from $ 300 to $1,200 and above.

“There can be no other criterion, no other standard than gold. Yes, gold which never changes, which can be shaped into ingots, bars, coins, which has no nationality and which is eternally and universally accepted as the unalterable fiduciary value par excellence. It is a fact that there is still today no currency that can compare, either by a direct or an indirect relationship, real or imagined, with gold.”
Charles de Gaulle, Head of French Republic
