What makes mini gold unprofitable is that the purchase price is too expensive than the price it should be. According to him, there are more costs for mini gold sellers to produce and issue certificates.

He gave an example that gold per gram is currently around Rp. 900 thousand/gram, if you want to sell it as mini gold with a size of 0.1 grams, the price can reach Rp. 175-180 thousand. The results of his monitoring in the market like that. Even though the actual count of 0.1 grams of gold is only around Rp. 90 thousand.

"The cost of certificates and production makes them expensive. Smaller precious metals are more expensive than buying 5-10 grams of gold. If you want to invest 10-20 grams at the same time," Ibrahim explained.

Now the more people buy mini gold to save gold, the more they lose, because they have to pay production costs and certificates more than once. Not to mention when sold, the price will be cheaper.

"The high cost is when people want to sell it when the gold price is as high as anything, it won't be BEP, it's not profitable, you know. Finally, some people thought that I was cheated. Automatically there were a lot of protests.

But still, Lukman said this instrument cannot be used for serious investments and looking for profit. Just as Ibrahim said, the price of mini gold will be much more expensive than the actual price.

"However, it is not suitable for serious investment. This is because the price of mini gold is much more expensive than gold with a more common weight," when contacted.

In addition, until now there is no mechanism and market for buying and selling mini gold, while gold traders prefer gold with a minimum weight of 1 gram. So it is likely that the purchase price will be much more expensive at the selling price. "So when you buy you will be charged a large premium, and when you sell you can be subject to a big discount.
