Gold, World War II and Operation Fish

Gold Eagle/Frank Holmes

“Although not directly addressed in Darkest Hour, the U.K. ended up evacuating billions of dollars’ worth of gold bullion and other assets across the Atlantic, all to be kept safely in Canada. The mission, codenamed ‘Operation Fish,’ is still the largest movement of physical wealth in history.”

USAGOLD note:  An interesting story about the the bedrock value of gold in the context of a very good movie and Gary Oldman’s extraordinary portrayal of Winston Churchill.  Holmes weaves Britain’s gold mobilization of World War II with Germany’s repatriation in the modern era along with that country’s recent rise to the number three position for gold investment consumption globally.
