Iran Stockpiles Millions in Silver And Gold

Posted by Brittany Stepniak on the Wealth Wire – Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Gold smugglers around the globe have been smuggling gold into countries and Iranian buyers are especially prevalent in this scheme.

In August alone, $2-billion worth of gold was shipped to Dubai on behalf of Iranian buyers, according to Turkish trade documents. Now, we’ve received news from London indicating that Iranians have purchased at least $10 million worth of silver this year as well.

In September, an additional $1.4 billion worth in gold and silver was carried in simple luggage bags from Turkey to Iran, UAE and Middle East.

Iran is doing this to avoid strict Western sanctions in preparation for whatever emergency situation may ensue as we inch closer to the Fiscal Cliff with each passing day.

According to a top Turkish official, Iranians over in Turkey are stocking up on silver bars and jewels, paying with the Turkish lira – the currency of Turkey – and they’re crossing the border to make this happen on the regular.

People are smuggling gold and silver in suitcases on planes to Dubai. Then, it is probable that they’re crossing the Persian Gulf by boat in order to get the precious metals into Iran.
