The Amazing Story of Gold
Since the beginning of civilization, gold has played a starring role in mankind's evolution, admired for both its beauty and flexibility. To the Romans, gold was known as "shining dawn," while through the centuries it has acted as the primary means of exchange. From 1500 B.C., when the two-thirds gold Shekel was an accepted unit of measure throughout the Middle East, to the Gold Standard of the 20th Century, gold transcended boundaries by representing a uniform value.

Today, though mostly used for jewelry, gold continues to factor prominently in our world, in unexpected ways. Gold is at work saving lives through medical innovations, allowing us to explore space, and fostering new means of high-tech communications.
