Price of Gold Skyrockets

The price of gold held fairly steady at $300 per ounce during the five year period from 1998 to 2002, then began to rise at an ever increasing rate, passing $1800/oz in 2011.

Just as a point of reference, when many of these charms were produced in the 1960's, the price of gold was $35/oz!

Gold has always been a good investment in uncertain economic times.
