I should be ok with a small gold investment

I was watching a tv program the other day and one of the callers wanted to make a huge investment in gold. I'm not really sure I would be comfortable with putting more than 10-15% of my money in gold. I've been looking at gold coins from the US Gold Bureau for my portfolio. I can buy a small denomination coin starting at less than $200 or I can go up to a full ounce of gold at over $1200.

Coins actually have a currency value or I can keep than as ingots. Since gold is one way of preserving my wealth and purchasing power, I don't feel like I can go wrong. Now I just need to look through my finances and decide how large of a investment I want to make.
