As the saying goes: Possession is nine tenths of the law.
We have obtained information that if one purchases a precious metal from the Perth Mint, it is no longer available for a physical pickup but rather a ‘certificate’ of ownership is given.
Your person also gets registered with this purchase, where the authorities can confiscate your ‘possession’ if/when a law is brought in as it was done so in the past.
If you require to have physical possession of the gold bullion you purchased, you must purchase a 1000g ingot.
