Are your Gold & Silver bars FAKE?

I do not endorse this website.

"Yet one market which seemed stubbornly immune to any counterfeiting was that of physical gold in China, which was odd considering that over the past decade China had emerged as the world's biggest counterfeiter of various, mostly industrial metals used to secure bank loans, better known as "ghost collateral", and which adding insult to injury, would frequently  be rehypothecated meaning often several banks would have claims to the same (fake) asset.

All that is about to change with the discovery of what may be one of the biggest gold counterfeiting scandal in recent history. And yes, not only does it involve China, but it emerges from a city that has become synonymous for all that is scandalous about China: Wuhan itself.

With that preamble in mind, we introduce readers to Wuhan Kingold Jewelry Inc., a company which as the name implies was founded and operates out of Wuhan, and which describes itself on its website as "A Company with a Golden future."

Yet another reason why I don't have "precious metals".
a.  You cannot eat it - gold, silver, platinum.
b.  what is a fair exchange rate, do people have scales?
c.  Counterfeiting - I couldn't tell the difference between polished copper (gold), polished aluminum (silver) if you held it up to me & I could weigh it, grind it, drill it, etc., I just don't know - and would be easily ripped off.

Pork, Beef, Fish, Chevron/Mutton  & Chicken/Duck - yep, my nose can quickly tell you what's what.
All animals are created equal; Some just take longer to cook.   Survival is keeping an eye on those around you...

This is why I always advocated holding actual gold, never ever buy a certificate!
