@Crispety - I don’t understand gold investments either but I prefer to collect art. I realize that the value of the art can fluctuate, but I buy it because I love to look at it. The value of it is secondary.
I think that it is fun to discover new artists and buy their work. I don’t know if I will ever find the next Picasso, but I am having fun trying. I know that if I am ever in a pinch, I would be able to sell my art on the market through an art dealer and make some money from it, so to me it is a good investment.
