Gold has been widely used throughout the world as money – as a medium of exchange, as a store of value.
The first known coins containing gold was found in Lydia, Asia Minor, around 600 BC. Gold has not only helped to fuel the way people traded through history, but it has heavily influenced our history, whether via precious artifacts, cultures, empires, religion, and wars. It has survived all this, and today it is still seen as one of the most precious metals in the world.
Gold is very desirable by many in the world, however, little know that production is very limited. An example of this is, that if all the gold that has ever been mined in the world was gathered together, it would only fill a 60-foot cube box or the base of the famous Eiffel Tower.
Gold is a pure, limited natural resource that cannot be reproduced. Mankind has substituted the precious metal with paper currency to try to represent gold. In the 19th century, Bills and gold certificates aided the circulation of gold as a form of standard money in industrial economies.
Gold standards and the direct convertibility of currencies to gold were abandoned by world governments in 1971 and Fiat currency now fills most monetary roles – basically nothing but just paper and ink that is printed by governments.
In 1928, $20 in the United States was equivalent to the exchange of 20 gold coins. Today, $20 United States Dollars won’t even buy you 1g of gold. The Gold value has been leaving the currency value by far for more than 50 years. A fact is, When a currency value drops, gold’s value rises. In the past 15 years, gold has risen 580% in value.

Monetary Inflation is happening everday and most of the people don’t realize it. 20 years ago, RM100 was enough to sustain a week’s meal for a whole family but because of Monetary Inflation the value of RM100 is getting lower and lower every year. RM100 today can’t even sustain a person’s 3 daily meals. Money in the bank saving account is shrinking everyday because dropping value on paper currency. Monetary inflation also has a big effect on investment part, example Properties investment.
A double story house in 2002 had cost RM326,478.00. After 15 years the value has gone up 225% to RM736,000.00, which has a profit of RM409,522.00 in 15 years. Now we compare the property to gold by exchanging the property’s value into gold in Kilograms. The comparison shows an opposite result of losing -62% in gold. This shows that, your profit in properties is no longer a profit when money inflation accrues over period of time.
On the other hand, if we transform RM326,478.00 into gold in 2002, after 15 years by 2017, the gold will have an increment of 400% on value which is approximate value of RM1,305,912.00 and with a profit of approximately RM979,434.00. This data had proven that transforming your cash into gold is much better than if you invested on properties.
Quantum Metal believe gold price will start another long train of bull market and bring the price to another historical high of 350 – 450 myr/g in the coming 5 years. Potential increment can be up to 200%. This is because we believe that in the next 5 years world economy will face another significant crash and this will lead gold into a price range with a strong bullish market trend. Furthermore, in Quantum Metal domicilium country, Malaysia, we believe the Ringgit and petrol price is unlikely to recover from the “unhealthy” situation in the next 5 years and only will get worse. Ringgit Inflation will increase the burden of daily expenses of Malaysian citizen on food, transportation, living cost, utilities and this will decrease the market spending power and will lead into a “hibernation” syndrome in the market.
