Today, there are still gold coins, but gold takes form in other shapes and sizes like gold bars, gold wafers, gold necklaces, gold earring, gold bracelets and even gold teeth. No matter how small it may seem, it still is gold, and its value still remains. Like other products, the price of gold is dictated by men’s supply and demand.
