In early 2013 Germany announced a plan to repatriate their physical gold. The plan was to take physical possession of half of their gold and to accomplish this by 2020. They recently announced that they had met their goal a full three years early.
Other countries have also taken similar actions. Australia announced a similar plan in 2015. Netherlands and Belgium have also announced repatriation programs.
These countries understand fully how the monetary system can’t continue indefinitely, and as a result, they want to have their physical gold in their possession in preparation for a financial meltdown.
