Cash in your account is not FDIC-insured, and it does not bear interest. Your metal holdings, however, are insured for their full replacement value. Cash in your account is held by a major bank in a Hard Assets Alliance subaccount of Gold Bullion International.
Payments are made to customers in US dollars. If you have an existing foreign bank account, we can wire the funds to that bank. That account should be set up in advance in the standing wire instructions for your account.
All trades are settled in US dollars, regardless of the region your gold is stored in. If you prefer to settle in a different currency, you have the option to take delivery of your gold and sell it to a local dealer who can provide that service.
