Why Buy Fractional Gold?

Though gold is off the one-year highs reached last week, it is still holding steady at the $2,000 mark, continuing to build strength before it seeks to usurp 2020's all time high of $2,075 an ounce. With gold at the strongest price levels in history and set to continue this positive trend, some investors may be wondering if they missed the boat. 

To be sure, gold is already far from its bear market lows of $1,055. Yet, based on gold’s strong performance so far in 2023, analysts have already begun raising their forecasts for the average gold price this year, with predictions averaging around $2,400 an ounce for just this year. There's a lot of room for gold to run before gold peaks in the next few years.

With gold near all-time highs and the window to buy gold at these price levels closing, it is becoming more challenging for investors to get in on the ground floor, especially those who are just beginning to accumulate gold and build a diverse portfolio.

While 1 oz. gold is typically the sweet spot for investors, fractional gold offers investors a few key benefits. Fractional gold is gold coins that are split into 1/10, 1/4, 1/2 oz. sizes, rather than the most typical 1 oz. size.

One of the main benefits of fractional gold is that it can be more accessible to buy in smaller increments than buying full ounces of gold. This makes it a great option for investors who are looking to diversify their portfolio or start investing in gold, but don’t have a lot of money to do so.

The divisibility of fractional gold also makes it easier to sell without selling whole ounces of gold. You may want to liquidate a small amount to meet a financial goal and fractional coins may be preferable for this. It’s also a way to give gold as a gift to loved ones without overdoing it.

Fractional gold does tend to carry a higher premium per coin than 1 oz. gold because it is more expensive to produce and generally in shorter supply than the popular 1 oz. coins, but if you're looking for divisibility or the ability to purchase gold in smaller increments, it can be a great way to start investing or strengthen the position in gold you already have.
