Gold Price Predictions for 2030: 6 Experts Weigh In

Truthfully, there are no definitive means of accurately forecasting short-term or long-term gold prices. It’s a challenging endeavor, given that there are many different variables that must be factored. Likewise, gold has historically performed well under a variety of different conditions and circumstances. That said, using different sets of techniques, it becomes a very fine art and science to predict the future price of gold. By all accounts, analysts are leaning towards a bullish scenario. Today, the price of gold hovering around $1276.80 US an ounce. In 11 years, some experts are predicting that price to at least double. In this article, experts weigh in on their gold price predictions for 2030.

Trading between $3000-$5000 Per Ounce

“Accurately predicting the future price of gold is on the same level of
mastering alchemy – in my opinion – many have tried and as far as we know,
no one has been successful. However, there are plenty of ways to gauge
potential swings and trends, borrowing any major geopolitical blowup
(literal or metaphorical), unforeseen economic turn, etc. With that said,
based on how the US and global economies are fairing and future market
indicators (i.e. recent 3/10 year bond inverted yield curve, central banks
physical gold buying trends, mining yields, etc.) combined with the fact
that no nation in the history of nations has survived debt levels the US and
other nations have achieved with our fiat currencies. I feel I am safe, and
being conservative in saying that gold should be trading between $3000 –
$5000 per ounce in ten years. Should the US dollar fail and/or the US
dollar loses the coveted global reserve currency status and/or even the
loss of the petrodollar, gold could hit these levels far sooner. It's a
troubling time for the dollar that is only going to get worse – I don't
think there has been any better time to own physical gold, if for no other
reason than for financial insurance.”

Brian Whitfield, President/CEO, Pacific Coin Exchange (PCE)

An All-Time High

“I think gold prices will continue to increase at an all-time high by
2030. Gold has the advantage of being limited in quantity, while the dollar
has the disadvantage of being printed at astronomically high rates by the
US government during economic downturns and to pay off debt. This means the
dollar's value will usually be going down either slightly or drastically,
while gold's value will usually hold and increase, especially when the
dollar's value is going down.”

$1,500 Per Ounce

“Over the next 10–15 years, the risks are tilted to the upside for the gold price. Three looming uncertainties will work in gold's favor: the unpredictable impact of monetary policy, namely unprecedented measures taken by major central banks over the past decade; ongoing geopolitical strife; and the economic realities of gold mining. Gold can act as portfolio insurance, or a safe haven, against risks associated with the first two factors. Meanwhile, exploration projects for new gold deposits are costly and can take 10 years or more to yield results. Global gold mining output is therefore projected to be in decline over the next 20 years. Given these sources of safe-haven demand combined with the high likelihood of slowing supply growth, we conservatively expect the gold price to clear $1,500 per ounce by 2030 and perhaps trade as high as $1,700/oz over that period.”

Phasing Out Mercury

“I would like to suggest that phasing out mercury from the gold supply chains may impact the price. There is pressure from consumers and jewelers to no longer use mercury when mining, smelting or refining gold. High levels of mercury use can have a devastating effect on health and lead to still-births, birth
defects, and premature births. Traditionally, mercury amalgamation is cheapest, easiest and most readily available way of processing gold from hard rock by small-scale miners. Efforts to replace the use of mercury with other methods will impact an estimated 20% of the world’s gold supply coming from artisanal gold miners – making it more labor-intensive and costly to process the gold. The phasing out of mercury from gold supply chains may impact the price of gold.”

Meri Geraldine, CEO, Gardens of the Sun

 

$5,000 an ounce or more

“If you are not looking at gold, you could be kicking yourself later. It wouldn't be shocking to see gold at $5,000 an ounce or more by 2030. There are too many good things happening for gold and in the next decade they could really give the yellow metal a boost; reckless government spending across the globe, central banks buying gold, gold grades in the ground diminishing, exploration spending dropping and the list goes on.”

By all expert accounts, there is no better time than now to invest in gold. It has long been seen as an asset to hold in a portfolio and has preserved wealth for innumerable generations. Obviously, there are pros and cons to any investment, but as a diversifying investment, gold is an excellent choice. There are numerous paths to embracing gold as an investment. Be it the futures market, to buying shares in a gold mine company, to investing in gold bullion, coins, or jewelry. With prices only predicted to skyrocket, time is of the essence.

    The reserves of gold in the fields will be enough for the world for a maximum of 20 years. If producers do not start mining gold from great depths, gold will soon run out and in the next 20-30 years gold prices will go up sharply.
