its MAIN JOB IS THAT OF CURRENCY, poeple get the 2 mixed up. Gold does not create wealth, gold will not make you money, it simply holds its value relative to other things.
sure as an experienced investor buying and selling the dips and troughs and getting timig right you can make money, but the average person will not make money esp with capital gains and vat etc etc.
What it does do brilliantly is work as a currency, as simple as that. The government knows this and will prevent this at all costs. The Kruger Rand gold ouce for example from South Africa had a copper mix because they intended for it to be used as actual currency you could carry in your wallet.
