Creative monetary gifts

The internet is full of ideas and guidance as to how you can turn notes and coins into original gifts.

With a little talent you can turn notes into roses, ties and chains, or you can use euro coins for board games.

You can hide money in the shell of a “Kinder Surprise” egg or a box of chocolate, or present the recipient of the gift with a challenge in the form of a wheelbarrow full of money – made up entirely of pennies. All of these ideas are better than the familiar anonymous envelope that people usually give at a party.

Für immer – Warum Gold als Geschenk für jeden Anlass eine glänzende Idee ist

Ein grundlegendes Problem allerdings bleibt bestehen: Nach dem kurzen Aha-Erlebnis bei der Übergabe verwandeln sich die Geschenke zurück in ihre „Bestandteile“: in Münzen und Geldscheine. Eine Einkaufstour später sind sie bereits Geschichte. Wenn Sie Ihren Freunden oder Familienmitgliedern etwas schenken wollen, das weit über den feierlichen Anlass hinaus Freude bereitet, etwas von Dauer und Bestand, dann ist Gold grundsätzlich eine bessere Idee als Geld – egal, wie originell es verpackt ist. Denn während Letzteres für Anschaffungen oder eine Reise ausgegeben wird, stellen Goldbarren und Goldmünzen einen bleibenden Wert dar, der die Beschenkten als „stille Reserve“ über Jahre und Jahrzehnte begleitet.

Typical GOLDEN GATES: The right purchase option for everyone

You don’t need to have a ton of assets to be able to give gold coins or other precious metals as a gift. At GOLDEN GATES, you can save money to buy gold coins for as little as EUR 25 per month – for example, with our GOLDEN GATES JUNIOR children’s product. Once your monthly purchase amounts reach the threshold for a gold coin, we will automatically send it to you. Thanks to this flexible purchase model, parents, godparents and grandparents will all have an appropriate gift for every event – from birth to baptism to the first day of school to confirmation. Over the years, the assets will grow into a tidy sum that the young person can use as they begin their adult life. But gold bullion coins are an ideal gift not only for children, but also for weddings and anniversaries.
