Gold shortage in the USA


The pandemic raging in the United States led to a surge in demand for gold in the country, which led to a shortage of bullion and coins among American bankers.


The lack of gold in the vaults led to the fact that dealer banks involved in the sale of this precious metal began to close.

Closed even the famous Swiss bank Credit Suisse, which began trading in gold bullion in 1856. The bank management made a public statement in which it asked not to disturb the credit institution in this regard.

It would seem that, with the enormous gold reserves stored at Fort Knox, Washington could have brought down a wave of demand. However, current legislation does not allow the sale of these stocks in the free market.

Gold shortages in the country forced American bankers to seek help from the Royal Canadian Mint. But Canadians were not able to provide assistance: the coronavirus factor was added to the gold shortage - the mint employees were sent home for an indefinite time.

In connection with the cessation of international air transportation, it became impossible to deliver gold from South Africa and Peru, from where precious metals were brought in safes in the amount of not more than five tons before the pandemic.

Considering that the situation with coronavirus in the USA and in the world is far from stabilization, it is difficult to predict when American banks will again be able to fully satisfy the demand for gold.

          What are you talking about? If the theft of gold by the Americans, it’s a Russian fake, and the theft of the USSR of Spanish gold is a historical fact.

    - and what, it is difficult to make this legislation "not valid"?
    The Senate gathered with Congress, in five minutes the Law was adopted and immediately put into effect. Donya will sign. What is the problem?

      This is Congress and the President, not the Duma and Putin. There is a big difference.

        These Americans (congressmen with senators) are generally very obedient and work at the click of a finger, especially when money is at stake. YOUR money.

    Insured? Perhaps theories about his absence at Fort Knox are not far from the truth?

          China is by no means the first economy in the world. They are growth champions, yes, that’s not to be taken away from them, but this growth has ended. With awakening, a resident of the looking glass!

    I don’t understand anything! The release date is March 28, and the content of the article is April First!
    I understand that it is necessary to attract the reader, but to print nonsense for this? Or Google is lying, because can't find anything like that? So I believe in Google !!!

    The United States has already released so many dollars that they are 3 times higher than the total cost of the product.
    So where is the gold to get enough !?
    All the gold ever mined in the world fits in a cube with an edge of 21 meters in length.

    Well, if you consider how much gold of other countries like "lies" in the States, the question remains !!!! Here the Germans wanted their gold back and the Americans sent them culturally to their German mother!

    Nothing, the Americans are full of money, and in the Russian Federation is full of gold, but there is no money. You can sell gold and get money.

      American, colored, cut paper is not even suitable for replacing toilet paper.
      Reputable banks are already refusing to open dollar accounts. And you go, buy dollars in the exchanger!

      These green little candy wrappers are unlikely to fit even as toilet paper, do they translate gold into them ??? In your family, you know better, yes, but you don’t even have to try to distribute such pearls to the rest. hi

          I won’t persuade you and try, you are free to express your opinion, I have something else, and you and your fellow enthusiasts spend time on argumentation, you either need sources or links, BUT from you (all) figures you will wait, so you yourself and just look for yourself ...
          PS You can buy toilet paper from us, but NOT for dollars. hi

            Convincing what? What do you not pay in dollars or euros? Your toilet paper is bought for dollars, and you are sold for rubles. So understandable? Understand at last, without dollars you cannot produce it, without imported machines, components of this paper, yours is only firewood, wood, raw materials.

              How are your stamps and not only already tired, I buy the same from relatives, and I know quite well what, how and where. I have to disappoint you - NOT for dollars, I won’t disclose the rest of the details, why?

                There is nothing to publicize, I know that there is nothing to publicize, and the USSR and the Russian Federation are not able to produce anything themselves. In fact, this is not a problem, it’s not a problem for anyone, only you, well, maybe even the North Koreans, are trying to pretend that you can do without the West.

                  And your “knowledge” is also NOT a problem for anyone, but besides the West - well, as you wrote, there are still many who are, but you are not interested, you have a different program and purpose. bully
