PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Increasingly, people use credit and debit cards for all their transactions. But paper money is still quite popular.

Adam Trexler, the president and founder of Valaurum, joined AM Extra to explain why gold is so popular now, how to invest smartly and explain in detail what aurums and valaurums are.
