While penny mining stocks are a good way to get exposure in the physical metal, there’s no real substitute to physical gold investments. Investors who are looking at gold for wealth purposes should take cue from Germany’s gold investment strategy. Investment site BullionVault reports on Germany's gold repatriation program with lessons that investors can reflect on. Germany has no intentions of selling it until 2020, or if they see it absolutely necessary to. The same, however, cannot be said for penny stocks. When mining companies go bankrupt, their stocks become useless. Make sure to know why you’re investing in gold before making investments in either gold penny stocks or physical gold. If you’re investing in gold for wealth purposes, choose the physical commodity. But if you’re just looking for a way to diversify your portfolio, you may go for penny stocks.
