Keeping some physical gold can be considered a sort of insurance, against a Great Catastrophe that may or may not come in our lifetime. But bear in mind that gold does not produce any cash flow. So it is unlikely and investment. IMO.

Just sharing a thought… Gold and silver is money.

gold and silver sitting in the safe= money sitting in the safe = uninvested money

Uninvested money do not give any return.

Profiting by buying and selling based on price fluctuations is called speculating, not investing.

Gold, Silver n PM act as a hedge against volatile FIAT paper money, which you can see in Asia is veryevident for some countries whose currencies are devaluating vs the USD - China, Malaysia, Thailand, Indo, Singapore, etc.

PM is a form of currency as their value are inversely proportionate to the currency you are hedging against. SGD100 now will be worth less over time due to currency changes (if downwards) and inflation. PMs act as a better store by being converable to any other currency with minimal FX losses and has minimal impact from inflation, infact inflation will boost its value.
