I found a great article on how to invest in Gold enjoy
We explain the options for those who want to buy gold – and weigh up the pros and cons
What is the best way to buy gold? Below we outline the various routes and options available.
Gold exchange-traded funds (ETFs)
These are shares that act more like funds and largely track an index or aim to replicate the performance of an asset. Some track the price of gold. They can be bought and sold via stockbrokers or investment brokers, as with any other share.
A popular choice is ETF Securities’ Gold Bullion Securities, which has an annual charge of 0.49pc. Another is iShares Physical Gold, a cheaper option, costing 0.25pc.

Alternatively investors can buy a unit trust run by a fund manager, who invests in both bullion and gold mining companies.
Evy Hambro, who oversees the respected BlackRock Gold & General (total annual cost 1.17pc), is viewed as one of the best gold fund managers around and regularly feaures on broker buy lists.
Other respected funds include S&W Global Gold & Resources (0.72pc) and Investec Global Gold (0.87pc).

Another option is to buy physical gold through trading platforms such as The Real Asset Company (therealasset.co.uk) or BullionVault (bulllionvault.com).
Gold bullion can be bought or sold in small units and is stored in secure vaults on owners’ behalf.
