Throughout history, the story of mankind and the mention of gold have been closely intertwined. It is almost universally considered to be the symbol of everything that is precious and of enduring value, thereby creating its role as a store of value for individuals and entire nations. The form that it has taken has been multi-faceted: from nuggets, ingots, coins, and idols to the current coin mintage of various countries around the world. It has been highly prized for its own attractive nature as well as its ability to withstand the rigors of time. It has been considered dear both because of the effort required to extract it from nature and its scarcity relative to the other metals on earth.
