Gold is shining in Oz

Gold price in Australian dollars

The gold price in Australian dollars has climbed to a new record above $1,800 an ounce as the Australian dollar has declined in foreign-exchange markets.

At MoneyWeek, we've been tipping gold since 2001. In that time it went from $250 to $1,900 an ounce in 2011 (a 660% increase), hitting record highs each year since 2002.

Successful investing is about the diversification and management of risk. It makes sense to have a part of your wealth invested in gold. At MoneyWeek, we show you the best ways to do that.
