I’m aware that this question is over 6 years old, so i think an updated answer is in order for all those finding this through google in 2014.
When investing in Gold there is one MAJOR thing that everyone must be aware of. And that is what exactly applies to government seizure, when they decide to make another round of seizing all citizens Gold. And i say this because they have done it once in my lifetime already, and it appears that they are nearing a second go round with it very soon.
what is seizable gold according to the governments laws and regulations???
*All gold coins (aka collector’s assets printed by government) because you are never the true owner of any government issued coin or currency, you are simply the temporary holder of it, until they decide that they want it back...said simply.
*also all pure gold bullion (aka asset class pure gold bullion) because the government views this class of gold as something that they do not want the people to possess. since after all...gold is power. its the currency of kings and gods, and has stood the ultimate test of time over thousands of years. and still will buy your about the same amount today, as it would when the pharaohs were ruling the land.
my solution, and what kind of gold i personally recommend and invest in??? Is 999.9% pure gold bullion, that has been pronounced currency grade!!!! This is the one loophole i have been able to find, to possess my own gold, in any amount i wish, and it not be seizable by the government at any point in time. which is ultimately what i care about here.
ill provide the link tot he company that i get my Currency Grade Gold Bullion from, for any passerby’s seeking that info themselves.
God Bless :)
