When the birthday of a good friend, relative or a loved one is approaching, the question of what could be gifted to an important person is often a question without a definite answer. The same is often true when another important anniversary arrives, such as a wedding, Christmas or graduation. How can you make an important person realize that he or she is more precious than gold to you?

A universal gift

So how do you remember this important day in a dignified and symbolic way? One option is to purchase something that would increase in value over time but would not take up too much space in the recipient’s home. It could also be something of sentimental and practical value. But what kind of gift could have all of the above?

A sharper reader will probably already be able to guess what we are talking about – gold, of course! Gold is a good gift for all the above reasons. Firstly, it is something that cannot be printed or generated: it is exactly as much in the world as it is in the earth’s crust. That makes gold unique and more valuable than the usual cash greeting card.

A value that lasts a long time

At the same time, gifted gold has a very practical value. For example, imagine that you decide to give your child a gold coin every year. If at the first moment the toddler may not think of such a gift, then the understanding of the real value of such gifts arises when there are more gold bullions and the child is older.

In this way, an adolescent who has reached the age of adulthood can use the gold bullions for a good purpose, using the money from selling gold wisely, for example, to go to university or purchase a car. This example illustrates well how gold is, above all, long-term purchase and will only show its true magic in the long run.

Which one to choose?

What makes a gold gift special is a fact that coins with a new design are made every year. This means that the year the gift was made is also reflected in the beautiful and unique design of the gold coin or plate. However, which item to choose as a gift depends entirely on your own taste and preferences. As a rule, smaller gold coins and bars are purchased as gifts and larger ones for the security in the future.

You will probably decide in favour of a gold coin or bar based on what decorates the bullion and best suits the recipient and the respective date. If the gift recipient likes animals, there is a lot to choose from – national animals are one of the most popular design elements and everyone will definitely find something to their liking.

If you want to wish a person happiness and success, a gold bar depicting the Roman goddess of fortune, Lady Fortuna, is a perfect symbol and is available in many different sizes. To mark a child’s annual birthday, it is worth looking at the Lunar series of coins, the design of which changes every year according to the zodiac sign of the Chinese calendar. In addition, the coins of the Lunar series are also a good opportunity to make a special gift for a representative of the corresponding zodiac sign. Lunar coins also have marginal numismatic value, gaining value every day they age.

Talking of numismatics, coins depicting a Chinese panda bear or an Australian kangaroo change every year. In this way, a considerable collection can be assembled over the years, which increases the value when selling to numismatics. However, if you want to share a piece of the world’s history and culture with the gift recipient, historical gold coins are excellent, each with its own story.

So the choice for making gifts is large and wide. In order to make the right and well-thought-out choice, it is recommended to come to the Tavex Bullion office. Together we will find the most suitable gift for your most important people. Being a gift for the special day, we charge no more than a smile and include a special birthday box for the gift.
