The transfer of significant gold reserves from the depots in New York and Paris to Deutsche Bundesbank in Frankfurt has been the subject of considerable public interest in recent years. For the first time, this book provides detailed information about the development, use, and storage of gold in the bank's own vaults. Germany's Gold features lavish illustrations of selected gold ingots from the reserves of the Bundesbank, along with essays offering authoritative information on the mining and processing of gold as a raw material, as well as insight into the mythologies surrounding gold.

Published on the occasion of an exhibition held at Geldmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, April 11-September 30, 2018.
