Financial freedom Through physical precious metals

In ancient times, one ounce of gold held the purchasing power to feed a family of four for a month. Gold continues to hold this exact value today. In a world where your wealth is continuously devalued by debt-based paper financial systems, Troygold liberates your purchasing power, putting real precious metals in your pocket. Reclaim the future of your wealth with the Troygold app.

THE JOURNEY TO TROYGOLD

Growing up, the brothers were instilled with the principles of free-market economics and the virtues of sound money, reading the likes of Mises, Hayek and Rothbard. Their experiences in New York, and having seen both the wealth erosion and societal ills that money printing brought to their  native surroundings, set them on a mission to create a platform that would change the way in which we secure our wealth.

After brief stints in investment banking, they set out on a journey into gold. They created a successful gold mining business in the goldfields of South Africa; learning about the metal from rockface to market.
In 2018, they launched Troygold with a single premise in mind: gold is money. Their greatest undertaking is still to find a way for individuals to store their wealth outside of a system that continuously erodes their wealth.
