Gold glamours, glitz and glitter! That is one of the many reasons why the world is mesmerized by it. Gold in its natural form is a yellow, reddish brown orange metal. It has been and is still used for medicine, jewelry, electronics, food, drink and monetary exchange. It is one of the most valuable commodity exchanged in the global market.
People have fought for it and some have died because of it. For example, it is stated by many today that gold was one of the reasons why Gadhafi, the African President of Libya was killed. The Libyan president had proposed that the U.S and other nations pay for Libyan oil with a form of African currency known as “Dinars”. This currency would have been backed with and made out of gold. Such a transition would have devastated the U.S and other nations currency. Hence, Gadhafi was executed.
For centuries royals and prominent societal members around the world have adorned themselves in Gold to display their status.
Gold dates back to Ancient Egypt and beyond. Ancient Egyptians believed gold was reminiscent of the sun. Gold was deemed to be a perfect metal; it’s hieroglyphic symbol was a circle. This circle hieroglyphic symbol also represents the sun.
Hmmmmm this looks suspiciously like Target’s symbol (the US based retail chain) 😀 😀 😀
