Source: BBC News

◆ In a rare look inside Bank of England’s gold bullion vault, the BBC is shown and reports that £194 billion worth of gold bars are stored there

◆ They hardly ever let anyone in to film, but the BBC’s Security Correspondent, Frank Gardner, is given access to the Bank of England’s gold vault to view some of the 400,000 gold bars which are said to be worth nearly £200 billion

◆ In a rare look inside Bank of England’s gold bullion vault, the BBC is shown how £194 billion worth of gold bars are stored

◆ They hardly ever let anyone in to film, but the BBC’s Frank Gardner has been given access to the Bank of England’s gold vault to view some of the 400,000 gold bars worth nearly £200 billion

◆ Victoria Cleland, Executive Director and the 32nd chief cashier of the Bank of England points out how gold is valuable because it is rare, “it’s in limited supply, you can’t keep making it”

◆ The BBC notes at the end of the video that gold has never been robbed from the Bank of England’s since it was established in 1694 … “yet”… which may be concerning if you are a sovereign nation storing national gold reserves in the Bank of England

◆ “People want gold, so it creates a market in itself, it doesn’t change value as much, for example, as currency …”

◆ It is “durable”, unlike chocolate (or pounds, euros and dollars), is “globally recognised” and a “store of value”
