Is Gold Investment A Smart Choice?

Indians in Coimbatore and Tamil Nadu wear and invest a lot in gold ornaments. The modern concepts of digital gold, ETFs, Gold Funds etc., are catching up fast. Let's quickly understand how gold investments compare with digital gold and the mutual funds investing in gold. 

Physical Gold:

  • The investment is made in physical gold like bullion/jewellery.
  • Physical gold carries the risk of burglary and theft and involves insurance charges to protect the physical gold.
  • The charges levied are the equivalent of the price, making charges and GST. 
  • Physical gold has no paperwork hassles when investing.
  • To sell your gold, the BIS certification and purchase receipt are important.

Gold Funds:

  • The investment is in physical gold form but through the exclusive fund from companies in gold mining. It involves the delivery of physical gold on maturity.
  • Gold funds are paper gold and suffer no risk from burglary/theft linked with the physical gold rate or its delivery.
  • Gold funds require paperwork when investing and add a nominal charge as fund management charges to the total price.
  • Whether online/offline, the fund certificate will be needed when trading it in at the maturity value.
  • Gold funds are dependent on the profits made by the gold mining company and not on the day’s gold rate.  

Digital Gold:

  • The investment is made digitally and can be of any value, accumulating units of gold, where 1 unit=1 gm of physical gold.
  • Digital gold typically includes brokerage fees, asset management charges and the cost of physical gold.
  • Digital Gold/ETFs require simple paperwork when investing.
  • The digital gold has no risk of burglary/theft since there is paper- gold till the time of delivery of the physical gold.
  • Whether online/offline, the certificate will be needed when trading it in for the jewellery/ bullion.
  • The gold rate for the day affects the digital gold price directly. Buy units of digital gold on the reputed platform of KhataBook.

To-do Checks When Buying Gold Ornaments

Here’s what to check when buying jewellery or gold ornaments, coins etc.

  • Wastage and Making Charges can be in the range of 10 to 20% plus the GST applicable at 3% of the purchase price.
  • Verify the rates like the daily gold rate, alloy metal rates and USD prices which affect the gold prices.
  • Ensure BIS Certification or the Bureau of Indian standards hallmark like BIS-916 for 22K gold, meaning that every 100gm of gold contains 91.6gm of pure 24k gold. 
  • Check the purchase bill and buy-back terms which ensure easy selling/liquidity, buyback facilities and exchange of gold on a gram-to-gram basis less the making and wastage charges.
  • Check the purity level since 24K gold is 99.94% pure. However, it is not malleable and needs the addition of Copper, Silver etc. The alloyed gold has less pure gold in it, and you have a choice of gold such as 22K, 18K, 14K, 10K etc. 

Tip: Buy 22K or 916 jewellery since alloy weight fetches zero returns. Lower the purity less the resale value.

Pure Gold is 24K, while gold in jewellery is generally 22K/ 18K. 18K options of white and rose gold are top-rated today in the jewellery segment and are closely tied to the 18-carat gold rate in Coimbatore today.
