Gold Investment Sees "Transformational Event"

Gold Investment has undergone "a transformational global event" according to one long-time gold analyst and advocate, writing in the Financial Times.

"Gold has reverted to its historical role as the global currency of the last resort," says Merryn Somerset-Webb, editor-in-chief of MoneyWeek – the UK's best-selling personal finance magazine.

Somerset-Webb's take on Western demand comes as Australia's Perth Mint said it's taking on extra staff to cope with the current surge in physical gold buying.
