Kitco recently announced a new worldwide program for investors to own gold and silver secured by the Royal Canadian Mint.
The new Kitco Royal Canadian Mint Prestige Account is a collaboration between a leader in precious metals and century old Mint that produces coinage for Canada and 60 plus countries around the world.
The investment program offers investors the option to own unallocated (un-segregated) gold and silver held by Kitco at the Royal Canadian Mint. Shipping costs are eliminated, liquidity is optimized and the costs and hassles of safekeeping precious metals eliminated.

Kitco uses the highest online security framework that technology offers, and complementing this protection with The Mint will provide investors with an unparalleled level of confidence.” says Kitco’s President, Bart Kitner.
The no purchase or sale minimums investment program started in May of 2008. More information may be found on the Kitco web page, Kitco Royal Canadian Mint Prestige Account.
