What is the purest gold in the world?
Pure gold, often known as 24K gold, is gold that has not been mixed with any other metal. 24K is therefore used in investment gold bars and investment gold coins. It means the 24 out of 24 parts contain pure gold. This is always expressed as being at least 99.5% pure, and 99.9% pure when it comes to coins and bars. However, pure gold is not used to produce jewellery as it is far too soft, which mean it will bend easily and therefore not keep its shape. Additionally, pure gold is easily scuffs and scratches as well as being too orange-tinted for the jewellery market. However, 24K gold is the most used gold for the gold investment coin market, although some coins, such as the popular Krugerrand and American Eagle are minted in a lower gold purity of 22K (which is equal to 91.67% pure gold).

Why do humans love gold so much?
Gold is popular firstly due to its appearance which is lustrous, weighty, and shines like the sun. It is also very easy to work with and for that reason it can take on many shapes, which means humans have been working with gold for centuries and centuries. Add to this the fact that gold is considered a rare commodity as it is impossible to recreate it synthetically. Therefore, the amount of gold we have on earth is limited and mining it a time consuming process. Yet another reason gold is so remarkable is that it can be mixed with other metals, such as silver, palladium and nickel to make an alloy, which means it can be made stronger and less likely to dent or scratch easily. This combined with the fact that gold does not corrode, means it is perfect for producing jewellery. In addition, even at a low current and voltage, gold is an excellent conductor of electricity, making it indispensable in the manufacturing of many electronic devices, including mobile telephones.
