Go for gold, Royal Mint tells fed-up bank savers: Website set up to simplify the process of investing in precious metals
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...us-metals.html

Quote:
Mint estimates extra £4billion could be invested if process of buying or converting gold into savings was easier
Price of gold, valued internationally in US$, soared by around 450% between 2000 and 2011
Ordinary investors can buy a single gold coin for around £199
Customers can have coins delivered to their home, or stored in the Royal Mint’s secure storage vault protected by the Ministry of Defence

Same here. We shop a few ethnic grocers and they're all surrounded by jewelry stores with the most eye popping gold jewelry for sale, and the people in the stores seem to be wearing a lot of their wealth.
