Gold bars are used for investment to help protect investors against inflation.
Gold is made into many different types of jewelry.
Gold is used to produce coins. They are usually sold to collectors or used as bullion coins.
Gerold had met many other coins that had come and gone. He never got to know them very well because they where never there for more than a day usually. Gerold had learned not to grow attached to anyone he had met because of this. A daily thought that had always crossed Gerold's mind was, "How come I have never gotten the chance to be chosen and been able to leave this can?" Even though he was sad he had never gotten to leave, Gerold was also happy because he was scared about what would be outside of the coffee can he had been living in.
One sunny day, Jim reached into the coffee can and grabbed three handfuls of coins. Gerold was terrified when he had ended up in the hands of a man. Jim put all the change he had grabbed into his pocket and went to walk around town. Gerold was nervous and did not understand why he could not stay in one place. Then he realized he was moving and he was finally out of the coffee can for good. Jim went into a small store and took out all of the coins that were in his pocket. Gerold sat there, face up just starring at the ceiling of a place he did not recognize. A man handed Jim money and took away Gerold and the other coins. Gerold was then placed in a display case where he could sometime soon begin his new adventure in a new place.
