An interesting development for gold
« on: June 08, 2016, 05:03:24 AM »
Pension investors in the UK will now be able to hold gold bullion from the Royal Mint as part of their portfolio.

The Royal Mint has recently said it will now offer people access to buy and manage gold held within a self-invested personal pension (SIPP).

Investors will be offered a choice of bullion to hold in their collection, ranging from Royal Mint Refinery 100g and 1kg bars, to a service called Signature Gold that allows customers to purchase and own a fractional amount of a 400oz gold bar.

Once bought, the gold is stored in the Royal Mint's highly-secure on-site bullion vault storage facility.

Yeah right.   You thinking what I'm thinking?  Why not ask Uncle Sam to hold your gold for you too?  ;)
