Editor's note: The estimated amount of gold left in Earth’s crust is 55,000 tons, not 55 tons as the video states. Business Insider regrets the error.
Gold is the shining embodiment of wealth. One ounce can cost up to $1,500. But other metals that are rarer than gold are much cheaper.

PLATINUM is 30x more precious a metal then Gold, And 300x more PRECIOUS then Silver. On planet EARTH there are only 2 major Platinum mines! 1 in South Africa and the other in Russia. ALL the PLATINUM ever mined in HISTORY could fit in your living room. PLATINUM requires up to 12 tons of ore and 6 months of labor to extract one troy ounce my friend. So in comparison my 1 KILO TROY of Platinum DWARFS your Silver. And as Silver is currently UNDER-VALUED, PLATINUM is much more then 300X more UNDER-VALUED! And due to the "BEER- FLU" the mining of PGM has come to a COMPLETE stand still! If you think Silver is moving...Just wait until Platinum inventories go to ZERO. Plus i can carry my KILO of Platinum in my Pant Pockets you need a Fork-Lift!

My first investment with Mrs Anah gave me profit of over $24,000 Us dollars and ever since then she has never failed to deliver and I can even say she’s the most sincere broker I have known

Without the help of Mrs Anah of financial education I would still been in abject poverty struggling with life, that's the best testimony gotten so far after years of great loss here on USshow, I do thank her and she is grateful and recommended her for those out there who're confused about forex too or make very low profit

The "eating gold with food" trend is just pure stupid, lacks class and very insensitive. Gold mining is really hard and the amount of gold that is produced each year isn't that much actually. Gold only probably taste like dirt or stone(not that I know whow those taste like) then you're going to eat it TO POOP IT OUT? You're out of you're mind.

I think Gold and Silver will continue to rise, until the economy becomes stable again, and this Corono Virus thing is overcome, and the fear factor that drives people to buy Gold will then be diminished, and then the stock market will rise. History will repeat itself as it always does, and when there's fear and uncertainty out in the world, people tend to buy Gold and Silver -- like in 1980 when inflation in the US was running around 15 %. You can't have that, and the Fed raised rates to around 16 %, and the mortgage rates were about 20 %. Gold then shot up fast. I see this Fear and uncertainty lasting about another 6-8 months, then a vaccine will be invented, and approved, and confidence will be restored, and things will get back to normal, like they were before the Virus. Because of what I've mentioned, I see Gold hitting around $ 2,400.00 to $ 2,800.00 in the next 6-8 months, and I think Silver will hit around $ 32.00 -- $ 40.00 per ounce. Note -- Silver's all time high was $ 48.00 in Arpril /2011, so it has room to rise up. I have bought Gold mining stocks myself -- because if Gold goes up 30 % -- the Gold miners stock goes up 100 % or more. 2 good gold mining stocks are ( GFI) Gold Fields -- up 93 % in the last year and up 185 % in the last 2 years. Very stable company -- been in business for 60 + years. They are listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Other one is ( BTG) -- Company name is B2 Gold, which is a Canadian company with the same kind of returns I mentioned above on the other stock.( GFI) This company is well managed and listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Hope this helps in the discussion, and I own both of the 2 stocks I've recommended.

Better to invest in a physical ETF, miners or such over the real thing usually, especially as you need an outlet to sell back out of it

The only true value of gold is as a conduit of electricity. That's why it is used in computers. Same with diamonds, their tru value is in industrial use. Moreover, they are controlled. If the Debeer family release more diamonds then the value goes down. When they hoard it, it goes up. Same with silver and the Hunt family. If all the gold reserves were released the value would plunge. It's artificial. An aside: Platinum, I'm not sure. I read that all of the world's platinum could fill one room. The piece never mentioned the size of the room.
