    It's good to have something with intrinsic value in reserve, a hedge against fiat currencies devaluing.

    Gordon Brown messed up by selling our reserves when gold prices were very low.

    Do you think countries should sell?

    Plus slot of countries' gold is stuck in the US federal reserve, they ain't seeing that again
