These German gold reserves are administered by the Deutsche Bundesbank, and this book provides detailed information for the first time about the development, use and storage of the gold in the bank’s own vaults. Interesting insight into the mining and processing of gold as a raw material, as well as authoritative knowledge about its qualities, are impressively complemented visually by the lavish illustration of selected gold ingots from the reserves of the Bundesbank.
