Why gold is bought on Akshaya Tritiya Akshaya Tritiya is believed to be one of the most auspicious annual days when you can start something new or purchase something and reap its benefits multi-fold then on. For this reason, people tend to rush to buy gold as a wealth investment which would multiply in later years. Thus they are welcoming prosperity into their life when they purchase a gold coin or bar or gold jewellery. Gold is also associated with the Goddess of Wealth, Goddess Lakshmi, and Akshaya Tritiya is considered to be the birthday of her husband Lord Vishnu's sixth incarnation Lord Parshuram.
