Recommended 100,000 Euro Allocation on Gold and Silver

Below you find the CelticGold.eu Q1 2019 Allocation in Gold and Silver. Please note the information below acts as an example for a model portfolio of 100,000 Euro, but can be scaled to individual needs:

Investment objectives:

  1. Investment 5-10 Years

  2. Amount to be spent over a period of 1-12 weeks, which allows to average into price dips

  3. Overvalue Silver as the Gold/Silver ratio is historically very high

  4. Products are instructed to ship for further secure storage

  5. Direct physical ownership involves no counterparty risk


Chart #1: Gold and Silver Ratio 20 Years

Further key investment assumptions:

  1. There is no plan to move products outside of Europe

  2. We added only silver coins for direct ownership, as buy/sell spreads are lower than compared to bars, due to VAT lost.

Investment recommendation:


Gold Coins:

All investment types, such as the Krugerrand, Maple Leaf, Vienna Philharmonic, Australian Kangaroo and Britannia (should be a UK resident, those are to be preferred as they are exempt of Capital Gains Tax).

Buy what offers best value.

Silver Coins:

All investment types, such as the Maple Leaf, Australian Kangaroo, Vienna Philharmonics and Britannia.

Gold Bars:

The 250g Gold bar offers a very low premium, in addition it can be shipped across Europe for very low rates. Whereas 500g and 1000g bars have much higher shipping rates.


50% in Gold and 50% in Silver.
