A Visual History of Gold: From mining to investment

VisualCapitalist.com published an in-depth five-part infographic titled “A History of Gold.” It highlights its history, the supplying and mining of gold, its uses and demand, using it as an investment and 2012’s gold deposit rankings.

Please note: the first part is pasted here, but to view the remainder be sure to head on over to the website.
