Gold. Everyone knows it. It's as if when we're small we inherently know that it's valuable. Whether it's the most powerful civilizations in history, your most wealthy, or your most revered they all have one thing in common; Gold.
In today's modern world gold has been relegated to a symbol of wealth, and a store of value with majority of governments coming off of the gold standard in the 20th century.
But that doesn't mean that those governments still don't buy, sell, produce, and trade gold. In fact, most countries mint their own style and type of gold coins and bullion. Most of that on display here.
