Learn about Gold Trading with iMinds Money's insightful fast knowledge series.
Gold trading is the investment in and trading of gold as a commodity. It is similar to trading in other commodities such as oil or wood, though there are factors that differentiate it. Gold has represented money and wealth for millennia in different forms.

The notes and coins in your wallet now are termed "fiat money". This means that the government declares them to have worth. The adoption of this form of money is relatively recent in history.
