For centuries, gold has been the preferred way of accumulating and securing wealth—and with good reason. Unlike other investment instruments, gold is a relatively low-risk investment option, as it predictably appreciates in value over time.
At Rush Gold, we’ve broken the traditional barriers of investing in and owning gold and have brought the power of gold into the palm of your hands with our revolutionary app—buy, sell, gift, and pay in gold with just a touch.
Today, Rush Gold is the future of gold investing in Australia. We’ve transformed the world’s oldest trusted currency into the newest by taking gold digital.
We believe in making the best gold accessible to everyone – no matter their portfolio size, financial goals or geographic location.

How does gold investment work?
Gold investing is simple with Rush Gold.
We deal exclusively in gold bullion—that is, gold that has been certified as being minimum 99.95% to 99.99% pure. When you buy gold for investment online from us, you’re purchasing 99.95% pure, investment-grade gold bullion provided exclusively by refiners accredited by the London Bullion Market Association—the world authority for the precious metal.
As soon as you’ve registered, you can buy gold in real-time. You’ll take instant ownership of physical gold bullion audited by Bureau Veritas and receive digital certificates of purchase and title.
What’s more, we don’t have a minimum investment level, and our fees are typically lower than when trading via a gold ETF. You can see the price of gold in several currencies and purchase however much gold you please with just a few taps on your phone screen.
Once you’ve made your gold investment, it’s then entirely up to you how you use it. Whether you want to keep a close eye on the market, engage in regular trading or return in gold investment, or simply buy gold and sit on it for a while before you sell it – with Rush Gold, you can manage your gold from anywhere in the world, at any time.
Knowing the price of gold—and understanding its history—can empower you to make better investments across your portfolio by recognising potentially positive or negative economic or market trends and the impact they can have on trading.
You can use the Rush Gold app to review daily, weekly, monthly and historical gold price trends and set gold price AUD alerts or check the price of gold across multiple currencies.
Our pure quality gold is fully insured for damage and theft with Lloyd’s of London and held in a high-security vault in Sydney, Australia. Unlike gold investing with big bullion banks, our users have total access and control over their gold and money. You can cash out whenever you want, with funds transferred to your nominated bank account.
What are the advantages of investing in gold?
There are several advantages to gold investing, not least of which is the constant demand for gold and its track record in retaining value during economic turmoil, as well as its potential for increasing during such times.
The practical applications for gold continue to increase, with demand growing dramatically every year since the 1970s. Gold is an intrinsic part of society, from jewellery and technology to its exclusive status in the finance reserves for central banks worldwide. Because it is so scarce, it tends to appreciate in value over time, which would make it a good investment over the long term.
While all precious metals – such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium—have value, none have proven to be as consistently safe a hedge against inflation and economic turmoil as gold. The financial value of gold tends to be countercyclical, which means that when the market is down, the cost and value of gold often goes up—the most recent example of this is during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Gold is considered a high-liquidity asset and, as of October 2021, it is currently trading at about AUD2500 per ounce – a strong market position. When interest rates are low and global economic stability is questionable, gold may be more likely to provide a better economic return than cash or stocks.
Having ownership of a tangible asset also means that it can be stored outside the financial system, reducing the counterparty risk, i.e., if something goes wrong, you retain ownership of your gold. This contrasts gold purchased via financial products such as futures contracts or exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
Because of the reduced counterparty risk, physical gold investing should be up for consideration in your safe investments and portfolio additions, and it can be a good way to
protect your wealth. Unlike with futures or ETFs, you don’t need a stockbroker.
