Who is MyGold®?
Why Gold and Silver?
By far, the most popular precious metals that people commonly turn to for investment are gold and silver. People traditionally buy gold as a “safe haven” against trying economic times – it is relatively invulnerable to things like economic and even currency-based crises. Whenever the market declines, the national debt increases, inflation occurs or a particular currency happens to fail, gold still offers an excellent level of protection and remains one of the most consistent stores of value available. This is especially true when the “go to” monetary solution of the day is simply to “print more.” When these activities occur, investors turn to the safety of gold and other commodities to protect their wealth.
How does gold and silver bullion preserve wealth?
- As a hedge against inflation
- A hedge against the long-term trend of the declining US Dollar
- The growing instability of the global economy and risk of future world tensions
- Gold and Silver are finite resources (supply and demand)
- Gold and Silver have always been a store of value with intrinsic value
- Gold is a highly effective method of portfolio diversification that can protect wealth
- Gold and Silver is something real that you can hold in your hand (if you can’t touch it you don’t own it)

How does it work?
MyGold® offers a simple 4 step process for investing in gold and silver bullion.
Are the Gold/Silver prices going up?
Past performance can be a good indication of future performance. Gold and silver prices have averaged very good returns for the last 10 years.
What are the current gold and silver spot prices?
You can access current live gold and silver prices on our charts and prices page.
Why is the gold price different from your website?
How do you calculate your prices?
Gold and Silver bullion trade above international spot prices because of the following costs: refining, bar manufacturer, delivery of the bullion and dealer overheads. Some bullion products trade with an additional premium due to being internationally recognised, scarce or simply desirable. MyGold® prices are not set at a specific percentage above spot for these reasons. Occasionally MyGold® offers special deals on gold and silver bullion so we recommend signing up to the MyGold® Newsletter to be notified immediately of special offers.
How much should I invest?
Customers are responsible for assessing and evaluating any transaction in light of their current financial situation, investment goals, and particular needs. The traditional advice from various experts has been to allocate 10% of your net worth to precious metals. However, gold and silver “bulls” are taking positions of 50% or greater. It helps to have a budget in mind because this allows us to present products that fit within your resources. Some clients choose to allocate holdings into precious metals as a kind of savings plan. No order is too small or too large.
Are there any risks buying physical gold or silver?
As with all investments, buying gold and silver coins or bullion carries risk. As in other markets, the price of precious metals can be volatile, rising and falling in response to market conditions. Therefore, before buying physical gold or silver, we encourage investors to do due diligence into market trends. How long will I need to hold my gold and silver before gaining a profit? Since most of us, including the experts, cannot perfectly time the markets, investing in gold and silver bullion should be considered a long term investment.
Do I pay GST on Gold and Silver Bullion?
Believe it or not, it is possible to buy tax free gold and silver. In New Zealand, there is no GST on the sale of pure gold bars/ingots, pure gold coins, pure silver bars/ingots, and pure silver coins. Bullion products that are not pure gold (99.9%/.999) do incur GST because they are not fine gold. This includes American Eagles (22ct/91.6%), South African Krugerrands (22ct), and British Gold Sovereigns (22ct). Taxes ultimately depend on your country of residence. We recommend you consult a financial advisor for tax related enquiries.
Where can I store my Gold and Silver Bullion?
MyGold® can suggest a range of options for secure storage of precious metals. Storage is not provided with your investment.
