As is known, gold has always been an investment instrument that is in demand because it is a safe haven or not vulnerable to market turmoil and uncertainty.

In 1901, Pegadaian officially became a pawn company owned by the Dutch East Indies Government which provided loans with movable goods as collateral. The pawnshop, which was then called Bank van Leening, did not only accept household appliances as collateral for the mortgage.

In its development, gold has even become the public’s favorite pledge collateral. Even today, more than 95 percent of the pawned goods are in the form of gold, either in the form of jewelry or gold bars. Therefore, Pegadaian continues to develop its business related to gold.

In 1998, economic turmoil occurred, the recession of the monetary crisis made the price of gold soar so that people who owned gold chose to release their investment to get fresh funds.

Over time, Pegadaian also took new strategic steps, so that gold could again be in demand by the public. Pegadaian cooperates with the World Gold Council (WGC) to issue Pegadaian’s Hajj Pilgrimage Fee (ONH) gold product.
