Topic: Gold & Silver – One for the History Books
As Good As Gold Australia launched mid 2013 trading in precious metals and bullion, initially, with a few close friends but quickly developed momentum with strong referral activity, into an energetic, robust, business operation.
The co-founders, two brothers, that had taken a two year break after having had a very successful 30 year stint in engineering and international marketing, were up and running, following their passion – Gold and Silver. This was a new and exciting business, yet it was not a new interest. Both brothers had been seriously committed silver investors since 1997, and had invested countless hours researching and investigating how the western world had got itself into a deplorable position of debt, based on a policy of deficit spending.
It was clear, that for the world to heal itself, it would have to restore its faith in world currencies by backing them with gold, as it had done for over 3000 years. They determined that silver was a far better option than any other precious metal because it was in incredibly high demand and yet so undervalued. The partners at As Good As Gold Australia believe that we all need to engage in continually upgrading our monetary knowledge, as we attempt to educate our fellow man into understanding the global financial process that law makers investigate to control our standard of living and the quality of our very existence.
The growth since the inception of As Good As Gold Australia had been both exceptional and yet humbling. From a starting point of marketing just the one silver coin, the Canadian Maple Leaf, As Good As Gold Australia now provides clients with an opportunity to source gold and silver from many countries around the world.
