Kirk Freeport has started selling gold and silver coins and bullion.
The products will be available to all consumers in both small individual quantities for jewellery or aesthetic value, as well as special bulk orders for the purpose of investment.
The gold and silver products are available for purchase at the Bayshore Mall, and range from collectible and commemorative 1 ounce gold and silver coins to bulk ingots.
Christopher Kirkconnell, vice president of Operations at Kirk Freeport talks about the investment in gold in these economic times: ‘Investors typically buy gold for potential financial gain from increasing gold prices or as a safe guard against economic or currency based crises. In this economic climate and with the drop in the highest price ever of gold in 2008, it is a good time to make such an investment. Investment aside, purchasers have the sentimental and aesthetic value of physically owning one of the world’s most precious metals.’
Kirk Freeport Plaza Ltd. has been a premier retailer of duty free jewellery, watches, fragrances, leather, crystal and china, and accessories in the Cayman Islands since 1972. The company operates 22 retail stores in Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.
