Why is Physical Gold preferable to Paper Gold?
The ownership of paper gold means you own a piece of paper acting as a substitute for physical gold. With paper gold, you don't own gold. In most cases, you don't even own a promise to receive physical gold, you are a creditor of the party issuing the paper gold certificate or account. You’re therefore exposed to the risk of potential bankruptcy of the party you’re dealing with.
Physical metals hold an advantage over paper in terms of tax and capital gains. They also protect you from the ever-growing risk of government tax grabs.
